1 Registration requirements
To purchase a .sg domain, you must live in Singapore, be a citizen of the country and have a "Foreign Identification Number" (FIN).
The "Foreign Identification Number", or FIN, can also referred to as the "National Registration Identity Card," or NRIC. Either one is the admin ID you will use when registering .sg domains. It's important to note that both the admin ID and BID (Business Registration #) fields are case sensitive.
2 Renewal restrictions
Renewals are allowed at any time as long as the current domain registration length is less than 2 years and the total registration length does not go past 3 years.
There is no manual renewal or auto-renewal grace period.
It can take up to 5 days for .SG domains to be active after renewal.
