.es Quick Facts

  • Available to anyone.
  • Registrar transfers must be confirmed by the admin contact (registry sends them an email).
  • Registrant transfers require signed documentation.
  • At least two servers must be provided, but there are no specific zone requirements.
  • Domains that are not renewed are removed from our system the day they expire. They still remain active at the registry, usually for several weeks. These names can be recovered by request via email until deleted by registry.
  • he registry operator for .ES will accept multiple requests for a domain name and await payment from registrars and/or registrants. The requests are taken on a first-come, first-served basis, and the registry then awaits payment. Each registration in the queue has 20 days to fulfill the payment obligation. If the payment obligation is not fulfilled in this timeframe, the order is cancelled and the next order has another 20 days. If the registration is ultimately successful, the order will be marked as completed. Please note that if a domain is available and registered through us, we pay the registry at that time and the domain is registered. Queuing will only occur if there are previous registrations made by other entities.

.es History

Until the liberalisation of the .es registry in November 2005, registering a .es domain was expensive and complicated compared to other ccTLDs. The second-level word had to be either a trade mark valid in Spain, the exact name of the registering business or association or be the first name and at least the first surname of the registering individual. Common words and placenames were unregisterable. There was also a requirement of a minimum of three characters in the name, though some exceptions like (Hewlett-Packard Spain) and (People's Party) were allowed. As an alternative many Spanish organisations registered under .com, .org or .net. Thankfully, registering your .es domain is much easy today!
