Unfortunately IDN registration is not available on the .LY system yet.
As soon as NIC.LY starts the registration of IDNs under the .LY system we will inform all our clients. If you would like to be notified about this and other .LY news, please add your email address to Libyan Spider Newsletter. In footer you should see the subscription form.
Any .LY domain names may be registered, except domains containing obscene and indecent names/phrases, including words of a sexual nature; furthermore domain names may not contain words/phrases or abbreviations insulting religion or politics, or be related to gambling and to the lottery industry or be contrary to Libyan law or Islamic morality.
In principle, you are free to choose the domain name. However, you cannot choose names that are in use by other organizations, or names that for various reasons are prohibited or reserved for technical, ethical or national considerations. You also have a duty to ensure that your registration of a domain name does not infringe another party’s right to the same name.
Remember that the responsibility always rests with you. By registering a .ly domain, you agreeing to the terms of service. If you fail to comply with the terms of service, this will lead to the termination of your .ly domain services. If you are not sure whether you can use the name, please do not hesitate to contact us.
