Companies or private entities that are located in Italy mainly use a .it domain name.
You need to have a valid address in a Member State of the European Union. Companies, associations and public bodies need to have a VAT number. Individual persons must be residents of the European Union.
Upon registration you will receive a so-called letter of registration.
If the owner uses his own name servers, they should be configured in advance.
All letters (a-z) and numbers (0-9) are allowed; hyphens (-) are also allowed, however not at the beginning or at the end of the domain name. A domain name should be between 3 and 63 characters long.
The following domain name information can be updated through your UniNames domain control panel.
* Changes are processed in real-time but due to the nature of the domain name system it might take 24 to 48 hours before the changes are propagated worldwide. Before the changes you made will be active, the Italian registry office will verify these changes, If not, they will be declined.
The .it WHOIS zone files are updated every 24 hours.
Updates can be done by any UniNames account having edit permissions on the domain name.
The billing contact of the domain name will automatically receive an invoice to renew the domain name. If the invoice is paid before the domain name expires, the domain name will be renewed.
Note the importance of correct billing information!
If not paid by the end of the month in which the domain name expires.
==> If not paid at the end of the registration period the domain name will be put on NO-PROVIDER-MNT. The domain name holder has 3 months to re-activate the domain.

the domain owner will be notified by e-mail
