Who can register .nyc domains?

To register an .nyc domain name, you must have a physical address in one of the five boroughs of New York. P.O. boxes are not permitted.

Renewals

We'll attempt to auto-renew your .nyc domain on its expiration date. We'll park .nyc 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.

Account change and contact updates requirements

Both are permitted, but your fifth contact type (Owner) must maintain an NYC address and the physical address must be in one of the five boroughs of NYC. P.O. boxes are not permitted.

Note: If you need to update the details for your 5th contact, you must contact support.

C3: Please escalate these requests up to DCAS directly. They can update this information during the chat.

Refund details

For details on refunds, please visit GoDaddy's Refund Policy page. Most domains will follow the Standard Terms, but certain domains will have exceptions or may not be refundable at all. Look under BOTH of the following categories:

  • Products with Special Refund Terms (look under Domain Name Registrations/Renewals)
  • Products Not Eligible for Refunds

Nameserver requirements

Two nameservers are required for .nyc domains to resolve, and a maximum of 13 nameservers is allowed. DNSSEC, IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.
