Who can register .news domains?
Anyone can register .news domain names on a first-come, first-served basis.
We’ll attempt to auto-renew your .news domain on its expiration date. We’ll park .news domain names 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.
Two nameservers are required for .news domains to resolve, and a maximum of 13 nameservers is allowed. DNSSEC, IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.
