About .es Domains

If you own a .es domain extension and have not previously provided your tax ID information, you will soon be receiving an email regarding new .es domains compliance. This email contains crucial information that will guide you through providing your Tax ID numbers (referred to as NIF/NIE numbers) to us in order to avoid cancellation of services like email and websites. Please call 24/7 Support at (480) 505-8877 for assistance with this process if needed!

The .es country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD) is an extension that represents Spain and espaƱol. The information below also applies to the following country-code second-level domains (ccSLDs):

  • .com.es — Intended for commercial entities
  • .nom.es — Intended for personal names
  • .org.es — Intended for noncommercial entities

Domain names can be up to 63 characters, with a minimum of three characters, and can contain letters (a to z), numbers (0 to 9), and hyphens (except at the beginning, end, or third and fourth characters in the domain name). You cannot register domain names with special characters such as & and #.

Details

1 Registration restrictions

Anyone/any company can register .es domain names on a first-come, first-served basis, however, everyone/every company has to provide an ID number from a government issued ID (i.e. driver's license, passport, tax ID card, company registration number, VAT number). If the registrant of the domain name is an individual, the domain name registrant and its administrative contact must match.

2 Renewal restrictions

Your .es domain name must renew prior to its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether you manually renew it or let us auto-renew it.

You can manually renew your .es domain name in the Domain Manager when it is within 1 year of expiration. For more information, see Manual renewal.

If you do not manually renew your domain name, we attempt auto-renewal 54 days prior to its expiration date. If our auto-renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt auto-renewal 45 days prior to expiration. If our second attempt at auto-renewal fails, we make a final attempt 35 days prior to expiration.

If our final attempt to auto-renew the domain name fails and you did not manually renew it, we will park your domain and you must redeem it. There might be a redemption fee. See Recovering Expired Domain Names for redemption instructions.

3 Transfers-In requirements

See Transfer domain names to GoWebsite for information on the transfer process. Note that .es transfers are unique in three ways:

  • The domain name does not have to be unlocked to be available for transfer.
  • The Admin-C (PCA) receives an email containing approve and cancel links and has up to 10 days to approve or cancel the transfer. If the Admin-C approves the transfer within 10 days, the transfer is complete.
  • Due to registry limitations, no extra registration time is added to a .es domain name when you transfer it to us.

4 Transfers-Away requirements

The same registry rules exist as with transferring a .es domain name to us. Check with your new registrar for exact information on beginning the transfer process. The domain name does not need to be unlocked to be available for transfer.

5 Account change requirements

When you move a .es domain name, the registrant's first name, last name, and company name cannot be changed.
