A domain name is considered to be registered to an organization, even if the "organization" ("Registrant") is an individual.

Domain names may be registered directly under .NA® or under the following second level domain names:

  • ALT.NA: Individuals (non-profit).
  • COM.NA: Businesses, consulting firms and other institutions or organisations engaged in activities for financial gain to their proprietors
  • CO.NA: Businesses, consulting firms and other institutions or organisations engaged in activities for financial gain to their proprietors
  • EDU.NA: Educational institutions not belonging to the Public Service
  • EDUNET.NA: Educational institutions participating in the XNET project.
  • ORG.NA: Organisations, that are non-profit making (as opposed to the COM.NA definition) but including NGO.
  • NET.NA: Networking Equipment

Registration of domain names is open to Namibian and foreign Registrants.
Some second level domain names may only be available for bona fide Namibian Registrants.

Bona fide Namibian Registrants are:

  • in the case of indviduals
    • Namibian Citizens
    • Permanent Residents
    • Domiciled Spouses of Namibian Citizens
  • in the case of entities
    • Companies or Corporations with 2/3 Namibian shareholding or membership
    • Companies or Corporations with 1/3 Namibian shareholding or membership, and
      • registered in Namibia and
      • conducting its business in Namibia

All other Registrants are considered foreign Registrants. The burden of proof rests with the Registrant, and any determination is at NA-NiC's sole discretion, which shall not be unreasonable.

Registration of foreign Registrants as Namibian Registrants is not permitted and may result in suspension or deletion of the domain name concerned. Repeated attempts at such registrations may result in termination of the Registrar Accreditation Agreement of the Registrar concerned.

No correspondence with a Registrant will be entered into by NA-NiC.
