Domain Registration Policy

Eligibility and structure of .mt domain name space

The mt top-level domain (TLD) is partitioned into second-level domains (SLDs) intended to serve a particular sector e.g. com.mt (commercial sector), edu.mt (educational sector) etc. To maintain the integrity of this structure, registration of domains directly under .mt is not allowed. Registration of new domain names must be made under one of the following SLDs:

SLDs managed by NIC(Malta)

 SLD

 Prospective Holder (Registrant) must

 com.mt 

 operate on a commercial basis e.g. limited liability companies 

 org.mt 

 operate on a non-profit basis e.g. charities, foundations 

 net.mt 

 be a provider of Internet related network services e.g. ISPs  

 edu.mt 

 be an education institution recognized by Ministry of Education in Malta 


Note:

  • In all above cases the prospective Holder must be the legal entity that will be using the domain and is required to declare the right to use the name preceding the SLD of the proposed domain name as a Full Trade Mark or Trade or Business Name in accordance with Maltese Law - e.g. to register "xyz.com.mt" the prospective Holder must declare the right to use the name "xyz" as a Full Trade Mark or Trade or Business Name in accordance with Maltese Law.

  • There is no requirement for the Holder to be established in Malta apart from what is specified above.

  • Refer also to Fees, Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy.
