UA is the most prestigious domain in Ukraine. To date, more than 25,000 names have been registered in the UA domain. The main feature of registration in UA is the requirement to have a Trademark valid on the territory of Ukraine. Trademark can be Ukrainian or international, operating in Ukraine according to the Madrid Protocol.
A UA domain registrant can only be the person or organization specified by the Trademark holders.
Registration of UA domains takes place in a semi-automatic mode. This means that all registration requests are subject to mandatory moderation by the Administrator. The moderation period can be from 1 to 14 days. Based on the result of moderation, the Administrator decides whether to register the domain or not. Applications for identical domains are processed on a first-come, first-served basis - if there is a pending application in the registry, no registrar can submit a new application.
The UA domain control panel allows you to configure NS, create Glue Records, renew a domain, or enable Privacy Protection.
After the expiration date, at the registrant of the UA domain there is a 28 day ARGP period to renew a domain registration. If the renewal was not completed during the ARGP, the domain is sent for deletion from the registry (redemptionPeriod). During the redemptionPeriod (30 days), the domain can still be restored, but the price of restoration is significantly higher than the price of domain renewal.
If a registrant's Trademark expires during the domain registration period, the domain renewal will not be available. For this reason, if you have a registered UA domain based on an expired Trademark, you should contact our support team to renew the Trademark number.
