The U.S. Nexus Requirement ensures that only individuals or organizations that have a substantive connection to the United States can register .us domain names. To qualify for a .us domain name, you must be meet one of the 3 below requirements :

  • A natural person (i) who is a citizen or permanent resident of the United States of America or any of its possessions or territories, or (ii) whose primary place of domicile is in the United States of America or any of its possessions.

  • An entity or organization (including a federal, state, or local government of the United States, or a political subdivision thereof) that has a bona fide presence in the United States.

Renewal restrictions

Your .us domain name renews before its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether the domain name is auto-renewed or renewed manually. Auto-renewal is attempted on the first day of the month prior to the domain name’s expiration date. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal on the 10th of the month and again on the 20th of the month.

If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 20th of the month prior to the expiration date, it must be redeemed. There might be a fee for the redemption. See Recovering Expired Domain Names for instructions on the redemption.

For example: Your .us domain name expires on October 10. If your domain name does not renew automatically, you can renew it manually by September 20. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on September 1, September 10, and September 20.

We offer cheap .US domain registration and full list of country code top level domain list with 24/7 customer supports.

.WS Domain Renewal restrictions

You should renew your .ws domain name by its expiration date.

We attempt auto-renewal on the domain name’s expiration date. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal five days later, and we make a final attempt seven days after that.

If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 12th day after its expiration date, you can attempt to recover it, and there might be a fee to do so. See Recovering Expired Domain Names for more information.

For example: Your .ws domain name expires on October 10. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on October 10, October 15, and October 22. If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by October 29, you can attempt to recover it.

.WS Domain Transfer requirements

To successfully transfer a .ws domain name to us, your current registrar must support .ws transfers out. To transfer away from us, your new registrar must explicitly support .ws transfers in.
