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