.baby is a new extension for companies and individuals that support and contribute to the baby and child care community.
Mission and Purpose of .baby
The mission and purpose of the .BABY TLD is to create a credible, dedicated and intuitive online namespace primarily for use by approved individuals, companies and organizations that support the vitality and happy, healthy development of babies and children. The registry reserves the right to validate registrations and registrants within .BABY before and/or after registration.
In order to register a .baby domain, registrants must meet the following requirements:
Have a meaningful nexus with the baby-related community.
Possess a bona fide intention to use the domain name to support the mission and purpose of .baby (stated above).
Select a domain name that corresponds with the name selection requirements.
Be classified in one or more of the following categories: 1) Medical professionals and community members, 2) Health care & health-related companies, 3) Non-health retail companies, 4) Not-for-profit or charitable organizations, or 5) Other individuals and companies
Name Selection Requirements
There must be a clear and logical nexus between the activities of the registrant, the baby-related community and the domain name being registered. Registrants shall have a bona fide intention to use the domain in supporting the mission and purpose of .baby.
Domain names that are likely to deceive, disparage or cause a material detriment to .baby, its community, its customers or Internet users, as determined by the Registry Operator in its sole discretion, are explicitly prohibited.
Registration and Verification
At the time of applying or otherwise requesting an available domain name, the Registry Operator, at its sole discretion, may require applicants to submit materials demonstrating that they meet the registry’s criteria for qualification.
Additionally, the Registry, at its sole discretion, may impose proactive and retroactive procedures to ensure that registrants comply with all application requirements, eligibility criteria and registration policies. The Registry may process and verify information and warranties included in applications, including without limitation qualification under eligibility and name selection requirements, prior to a domain name being granted.
The Registry reserves the right to deny, suspend, transfer and/or cancel any request for registration or an existing domain name registration that is found to be in violation of any registration policies or is identified as not bearing a sufficient nexus to the cosmetic industry. If a domain name is rejected, suspended, transferred or canceled the registrant will not receive a refund on this domain name.
Reserved Domain Names
Some domain names are reserved names; these are names which are ineligible for registration due to ICANN restrictions or Registry Operator designation. Certain Domain names have been classified as Premium and will be sold at higher prices. If you wish to apply for a Premium domain name, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to process your application.
