Increased security with new registrar agreement

The standard agreement between Norid and the registrars (domain name providers) was revised in June 2021. The background is the growing need to ensure security and quality for the Norwegian top-level domain. Eight out of ten registrars have chosen to continue the business with Norid under the increased requirements. In sum, these registrars provide a broad and varied offer to the customers, and the competition in the dealer market within different customer segments still works.

Domain name policy update: Harmonization with the new registrar agreement

Norid has revised the agreement with the registrars. This makes it necessary to make a few adjustments to the domain name policy for Norwegian domain names. Most importantly, terms and conditions that concerns the relationship between Norid and the registrars have now been added to the registrar agreement, and so will be removed from the domain name policy.

Several domain name holders confirm that the pandemic is a direct cause or has speeded up the development of new business ideas for which they need domain names.

2020 – a year for digital seven-mile steps
