Domain Name Format

A typical .CD domain name may be in the form .CD or ..CD. CDNIC currently supports COM, NET, ORG, EDU, MIL, AC types.

The domain name must contain a string of minimum one character and can contain a maximum of sixty-three characters, without the relevant .cd suffix. These characters may be non-Latin characters but must be of the type and nature accepted by CDNIC at the time of registration of the domain name in question.

The following may be included in a domain name:

-> Letters "a" through "z". The domain names are not case sensitive. Hence, there will be no distinction made between upper case letters and lower case letters (ie. "A" is treated as "a" and vice versa);

-> The numerals 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and/or 9;

-> The hyphen character, which is the only non-alphanumeric character allowed in a domain name, provided it is not the beginning or ending character of a domain name, or in the third and/or fourth position of a domain name; and

-> Non-Latin characters of the type that may from time to time be accepted by CDNIC


CDNIC registry currently implements open policy where document verification is not required for the purchase, renew and transfer of domain names. This policy may be subjected to changes in future.


The registrant agrees that its registration of the domain name shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, transfer or being placed on hold so as to facilitate, other things, (1) the correction of errors made or inadvertent actions taken by any registrar or CDNIC in relation to that domain name; or (2) the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name;

The registrant acknowledges and agrees that registration of a domain name does not create any proprietary right for any registrant, registrar or any other person in:

-> the characters or the resulting combination of the characters used as a domain name; or

-> the domain name registration itself;

and that the entry of a domain name in the Shared Registry System (SRS) or in the WHOIS system of the SRS shall not be construed as evidence of any ownership whatsoever. The Registrant shall not in any way transfer or purport to transfer a proprietary right in any domain name registration, or grant or purport to grant as security or in any other manner encumber or purport to encumber a domain name registration. The registrant represents that, to the best of the registrant's knowledge and belief, neither the registration of the domain name nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly used infringes the legal rights of any third party.

The registrant shall provide to his registrar complete and accurate data / information and promptly correct and update such data / information during the term of the domain name registration. Such data / information includes changes in the mailing address of a contact or changes in name server details. A registrant's provision of incomplete and inaccurate or unreliable information, its failure promptly to update information provided to the registrar, or its failure to respond for over 15 days to inquiries by the registrar concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with the registrant's registration shall constitute a material breach of the Registrant Agreement and be a basis for cancellation of the Domain Name registration.
