SHOP is a gTLD top-level domain. Registration of SHOP domains on the Internet became possible thanks to the New gTLD program. With the new domains, businesses have the opportunity to improve their visibility on the web, as well as accurately define their field of activity. SHOP domain registration is automatic, the domain is registered within 1 minute. No documents are required to buy a SHOP domain.
No documents are required to register a SHOP domain. However, keep in mind that New gTLDs are subject to the Uniform Domain Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). In this regard, we recommend avoiding when registering domain names that are similar to well-known Trademarks or consonant with popular sites. Registering a domain similar to an existing Trademark may result in the loss of the domain. The best solution is to come up with a unique domain name that is unlike any other.
SHOP Domain Benefits

- The domain name is familiar and equally easy to hear by site visitors.
After the expiration of the registration period, the SHOP domain is subject to the ARGP (Graceful Renewal Opportunity) period, up to 28 days. Please note that the ARGP period is not guaranteed and may be less than 28 days (depending on partner registrar or registry terms). If the domain is not renewed during the ARGP validity period, the RedemptionPeriod (the possibility of domain recovery) occurs. RedemptionPeriod is valid for 30 days, the domain owner is given the opportunity to restore the domain at a higher cost than the renewal price. If the domain is not restored within the RedemptionPeriod, 5 days after the end of the RedemptionPeriod, the domain is free and available for registration with any registrar. The cost of domain restoration is shown in the table below, item “Restoration”.
