Domain name policy for .no

Appendix A: Reserved and prohibited domain names under domains managed by Norid

Appendix A specifies reserved and prohibited domain names under the domains that Norid manages. Reserved names are domain names that are in public use (for example, they form part of the geographical second-level domains) or names that are reserved for later use in this way. Prohibited names are names that may not be registered for various reasons.

Guidelines for amendments to Appendix A

Names that are prohibited for technical reasons

These are names that are prohibited because one would expect to find a specific service behind the name, or because registration of the name could cause technical problems.

ftp 
localhost 
whois 
www

Registration of the combination <letter><letter><hyphen><hyphen><domain name> is prohibited except as a correct ACE form of a domain name with national characters.

Miscellaneous

no   # Used as a test zone for DNSSEC, etc.
nic # The international designation for a registry.
internet 
internett

Names reserved on the basis of national considerations. This category is being phased out.

In June 2009 two numeric domains were reserved. At the time, it was not decided which insitutions the domains should belong with and because of this, the domains have not been published in the appendix. This has now been decided upon, and the domains will now be added to the appendix:

116000 Post- og teletilsynet
116123 Mental Helse

The insitutions responsible must register the domain names by 30 October 2014.

Names that are reserved as category second-level domains

These domain names are reserved because they are or may become category second-level domains. To have the status of an existing or future category domain, the category that the domain is to cover must be universally applicable and general, and the domain must be open to all applicants with an affiliation to the category in question.

Names that are reserved as geographical designations

These are names that are in use or reserved for further extension of the geographical second-level domains. For a name to be reserved in this category, it must have geographical significance, that is, it must be a settlement with a population of more than 5000 (according to Statistics Norway’s figures), a municipality, a county, a region, an island of significant size, or one of the official names of Norway (selection in accordance with the list drawn up by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs).

Specific words and expressions

Certain expressions may not be registered within the .no domain. The names are prohibited because they represent pornographic, defamatory or discriminatory expressions or other specific words and expressions whose registration Norid feels should not be permitted. Even though it is not possible to prevent all such registrations, and even though the choice of domain name is the applicant’s responsibility, it is desirable to restrict certain expressions.
