FAQs : APPLICATION PROCESS

  • Why register?

    We believe that there will be quite a lot of interest in the dotSCOT domain names once they are available to register.

    To stand a better chance of getting the name you want and avoid missing out, you need to apply for a name as soon as you can.

    However, it is not possible to apply at the moment. But, to be one of the first to find out when this will be, you can register your name and email on this site, and we will let you know as soon as a date has been set.

  • When will the names be available?

    The application process can take a number of months to complete.  After delegation, we would look to start the sunrise period.  This will probably be in 2014.

    If you have registered your details, we will send you an email to let you know when names are available to purchase.

     

  • How will you check that only valid applications are received?

    The goal is to automate as much of the validation as possible as this will help keep costs down and therefore prices, thus making the domain names available to more Scots.
