The .REIT gTLD is the online home for the worldwide community of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). The .REIT TLD presents an opportunity to showcase REITs as a globally recognised approach to real estate investment, as well as a means of protecting the reputation of REITs and providing assurance to global internet users that any domain name ending in .REIT belongs to a genuine REIT.
The .REIT domain names are available on a non-discriminatory basis worldwide only to companies which operate under national laws consistent with the well-accepted basics of the REIT approach to real estate investment.
A stringent validation process will ensure that only applicants able to document that they are operating as REITs (regardless of what acronym they are known by in their home country) in countries with established REIT regimes recognised by NAREIT will be able to register a .REIT domain. Registrants may be required to submit additional documentation in support of their domain name application. Domain names are available only to actual REIT entities and not to REIT sponsors, holding companies, or other affiliated entities.
All .REIT domains are required to serve the needs of the REIT community by providing information about or offering services related to the REIT. Once a domain is registered it should not be left parked and should point to relevant information about the REIT.
Name Selection Policy
Eligible registrants are restricted to one .REIT domain name per applicant. The domain name must either correspond to the REIT’s legal trade names or be the name by which the REIT is commonly known which may include acronyms, registered and common law trademarks and exchange ticker symbols.
More details on the eligibility requirements for .REIT can be found here: http://nic.reit/pdfs/REIT-Fact-Sheet.pdf
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.
