To order a domain name, you must go through a domain name provider. The provider will register the domain name and help you get started, and handle everything necessary to follow up on your subscription.

Is it OK to borrow or rent a domain name from others?

It is possible to borrow or rent a domain name from others, whether they be private individuals, other businesses or professional agents offering this type of service. However, there is a certain amount of risk involved with this type of arrangement, both for the domain name holder and for the other party. The holder will always be the one who is responsible for and in control of the domain name, and holders will therefore have the power to cancel the subscription or transfer it to others. On the other hand, the holder is also the one who may be held liable if the domain name is used for illegal activity.

What does a domain name cost?

The domain name provider pays a set rate to us to register a domain name. In addition, you will have to pay your provider for his part of the job. Rates vary depending on the types of services you order, rates also vary between providers.

Our price to the provider for the registration of a domain name is 75 NOK including VAT. The registration fee also covers the annual fee for the first year. The annual fee after that is NOK 75 including VAT from us to the provider.

The providers have different price models, and some also have special offers that might result in a lower price. It can therefore be worth while to check prices from several providers.

Establish a contract with a domain name provider

We recommend that you choose a domain name provider that is willing to give you clear, written terms and conditions for your contractual relationship. The contract should, at minimum, include provisions regulating rates, response times, non-compliance and termination of the contract. With a good contract, it will be easier for you to make demands if you run into problems.
