Silicium Network (.hu domain Registrar), ISPC and Registration Rules
Our company (Silicium Network Ltd.) is an accredited .hu domain Registrar as a partner of the Internet Service Providers Council (ISPC).
The Council of Hungarian Internet Providers or the Registry (operated by ISZT Nonprofit Kft.) does not serve applicants directly and can not negotiate directly with them.
The full version of the Domain Registration Rules is available at http://www.domain.hu/domain/English/szabalyzat/szabalyzat.html
Is allowed to delegate .hu domain name:
» Citizen of the European Union, or private individual with residential permit in Hungary
» Organization established on the territory of the European Union
Entered non-priority demands are being posted on waiting list for a period of two weeks (http://www.domain.hu/domain/English/meghirdetes.html). During this period, objections regarding the domain name and priority demand can be placed. In absence of these, requested domain name will be registered under the name of the first claimant. (It is first claimant, who can prove through the registry office claim stamped with the earliest date.)
After the 14 days, controlling and registering procedures are being started. This will take 2-4 days, so the total lead-time for domain name registration is 16-18 day from the claim entering date.
Priority demand is in force when:
» Requested domain name is the name of claiming organization (or its short name)
» Claimant disposes of copyright on registering contest provided by Hungarian Patent Office
» Claimant disposes of public copyright on registering contest provided by EU Patent Office, Community Trade Mark (CTM)
Names of Hungarian settlements have also priority. These names are not posted on waiting list, for these checking and registering process starts immediately, so lead-time for registration of this type of domain names is 3-4 days. With this, the local government will get the right of use for the domain name of a certain settlement.
Registration of Personal Names
For domain names including both, Hungarian first and second names (ex. firstnamesecondname.hu or firstname-secondname.hu), we consider demands only upon certification of the right of use for the personal name. Only the name holder, or his/her authorized representative are allowed to place an application for a certain personal name. (This rule concerning personal names applies for all, known names, nicknames, alias of notorieties – like ex. nagyfero.hu, alfonzo.hu, hofigeza.hu.) Proxy Form can be downloaded from Documents menu.
Second Level Public Domain
You can require for a second level public domain when this is already taken on the first level, or registration of it with .hu is not possible at all.
The following second level domains can be registered:
2000.hu | agrar.hu | bolt.hu | casino.hu | city.hu | co.hu | erotica.hu | erotika.hu | film.hu | forum.hu | games.hu | hotel.hu | info.hu | ingatlan.hu | jogasz.hu | konyvelo.hu | lakas.hu | media.hu | news.hu | org.hu | priv.hu | reklam.hu | sex.hu | shop.hu | sport.hu | suli.hu | szex.hu | tozsde.hu | tm.hu | utazas.hu | video.hu
In these cases priority demand is not possible, and Registry (ISPC) will register the domain names in 3-4 days, without posting them for two weeks on the waiting list. Claimant of any domain names delegated immediately under the second level public domains can be any Hungarian or foreign private individual, or organization.
If you intend to run your website under your domain name, and if you would also like to use e-mail addresses with your domain, please visit our Hosting Service menu, where you can choose from our uncommonly favourable hosting packages.
Domain names must be of minimum 2, maximum 40 characters. (Choosing of a minimum of 5, but even better, of at least 10 characters domain names is recommended.)
Type of characters that can be used for domain names are:
» Small letters of Latin and Hungarian alphabet (a-z)
» Numerical characters (0-9)
» Dashes (-)
» Domain names cannot start or end with a dash, nor it can contain two consecutive dashes.
Accentuated Domain Names
Delegating of accentuated domain names is processed also based on the Domain Registration Rules. You can read about occurring differences at http://www.domain.hu/domain/szabalyzat/ekezetes.html.
Some browsers and e-mail programs cannot properly read this type of domains, so we do not recommend at all the using of accentuated e-mail addresses. However, for searching in the browser we recommend to register besides the accentuated domain, also the non-accentuated version, and run the website under both domain names. Using and publishing of accentuated domain names in international virtual space is not luckily.
