.ee domains can be registered by all natural or legal persons. For registering, an application must be submitted to an accredited registrar of .ee domains. Registrars have an obligation to verify the registrant in the course of the registering process, and mandatory identity verification methods have been established for registrars.

  • Persons refers to both Estonian and foreign private and legal persons;
  • any person can register an unlimited number of domains;
  • domains are registered in the order of applications received by the registry, i.e. on a "first come, first served" basis.
  • the EIF has the right to decline registration of a domain that has been blocked or reserved, and if the registration application does not meet the specific conditions for registering reserved domains.
  • Domain name can be registered also without a name server! Read about this here!

  • EIF publishes the Registrant, Administrative Contact and Technical Contact name, e-mail address and legal person registry code via WHOIS service.  

  • When registering a domain name, registrar, administrative contact and technical contact postal address don't need to be send to EIF.

Potential problems:

  • A wrong or incorrect domain name has been registered as a result of a mistake or carelessness during the registration. What should be done? The EIF as the registry cannot annul the registration nor reimburse the money. In the instance of a mistake, a new domain has to be registered. If a mistake has been made by the registrar, the registrant can apply to the registrar for reimbursement and cancellation of the registration. However, if the registrant has made a mistake in the domain name and the mistake is also reflected on the application, the mistaken domain name can be deleted upon a request by the registrant.
  • I registered a domain name and found out later that there exists with the same name trademark or legal person? When a person register a domain name, he/she confirms that he/she doesn't abuse third parties rights (including intellectual property rights). In this case it is possible that a person, who's rights he/she is abusing, will sue a domain registrant to the court or to the domain dispute committee.
