New Yorkers need to be aware of the dot .NYC Nexus Policy

Dot .NYC is only for New Yorkers.

Dot .NYC is only for New Yorkers.

If you live within the Five Boroughs, you can generally register a dot .NYC domain name.

The latest geo-gTLD to hit the open market, dot .NYC has in fact several restrictions, all governed by the .NYC Nexus Policy.

Here’s what the policy states:

The City of New York desires to have only those individuals or entities having a substantive and lawful connection to the City be permitted to register for .NYC domain names (“Nexus Policy”).

  1. Registrants in .NYC must be either:
    1. a natural person whose primary place of domicile is a valid physical address in the City of New York (“Nexus Category 1”); or
    2. an entity or organization that has a physical street address in the City of New York (“Nexus Category 2”).
  2. The existence of a P.O. Box address in the City of New York shall not qualify for purposes of meeting the Nexus Policy.
  3. Registrants must agree in their Agreement with their Registrar and/or Reseller, whichever applicable, that they are in compliance with all relevant Federal, New York State and New York City laws, including the tax requirements for conducting business via the Internet. Registrants may find more information about compliance with the City tax laws at the City of New York Department of Finance’s website (currently at www.nyc.gov/finance).
  4. Registrants must remain in compliance with the applicable Nexus Category for the entire period of such domain name’s registration by the registrant.
  5. Registrants may not license, sub-delegate or otherwise transfer .NYC domain names to third parties that otherwise fail to meet the requirements of this Nexus Policy.

In other words, when transferring dot .NYC domains to another entity, you must be very careful and observant of the dot .NYC Nexus Policy.
