And 'the intermediary between the person seeking to register the domain name and the Authority. MisterDomain.EU (inweb-REG) is accredited by the National Pisa NIC for synchronous recording of .IT domains.

Nome a Dominio

A domain is the name that uniquely identifies a person, company or organization on the Internet. We, for example, we identify the Internet as "misterdomain.eu" (.EU indicates EUROPE).
The domain is made up of two parts, separated by a point. The first part is the name chosen at registration, while the second is an acronym that may indicate a geographic area, or type of activity carried out and it is called extension. Here are some examples:

  • Geographical extensions: IT Italy, ES Spain, DE Germany, FR France, EU Europe, CH Switzerland, US United States, CA Canada (etc.)
