General Remarks

The following domain names have additional specific eligibility requirements:

  • Names of the Public Administrations and public services
    • The Registry Operator will only authorize the registration of names of Public Administrations and/or other bodies belonging to the Public Sector of the Comunidad de Madrid, as well as names directly or indirectly related to any public service provided by the Comunidad de Madrid when this registration is advisable to protect the name of those Administrations, bodies or services.
    • The registration of names of special relevance to .madrid such as geographic names or any referring to public services will be subject to specific eligibility requirements. The consent of the relevant local public authority under applicable legislation will be required to register:
      • Geographical names of the Comunidad of Madrid as well as of sights, symbols or places of local reference or other iconic or reference names at the local level in the Comunidad of Madrid, including any variations and abbreviations thereof or other terms in common use to describe them.
      • Names of public services or characteristic services of public authorities including any variations and abbreviations thereof or other terms in common use to describe them.
    • The Registry Authority reserves the right to request proof of the existence of such consent at any time during the lifetime of the domain name. If the Registrant refuses or is unable to provide verifiable evidence of this consent when asked by the Registry Authority, this may lead to the blocking or cancellation of the domain name.
  • Generic Names of specific relevance
    • Generic Names that refer to activities, sectors or resources which due to their specific relevance may provide the registrant with an unfair competitive advantage, or that may create consumer confusion detrimental to the public interest. Said names may only be registered by the representative bodies overseeing a concrete sector or activity, or by a registrant that has the specific endorsement from said body, and need be, in any case, validated by the Registry Operator.
    • During the first six months of General Availability, the Registry Authority reserves the right to conduct pre-evaluation screening of the .madrid domain names that may fall under the provisions of Generic Names of Specific Relevance before their allocation. Pre-evaluations will be conducted during the first 5 working days after application or registration.
