Who can register these domains?

Anyone can register .family domain names on a first-come, first-served basis.


We’ll attempt to auto-renew your domain on its expiration date. We’ll park domains after the first failed billing attempt. If the domain isn’t renewed within 40 days following expiration, we cancel it and remove it from your account.

Nameserver requirements

One nameserver is required for domains to resolve, and a maximum of 13 nameservers is allowed. DNSSEC, IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.
