    I've identified a couple of Italian domains that I would like to buy however the registration process is putting me off.

    First of all I need to enter my national insurance number then I need to do some sort of fax confirmation process. Judging by the pain I am having with registering I am also conscerned that there are going to be similar crazy rules about what I can put on there selling/transfer rights etc.

    Does anyone have any experience of this, is there somewhere I can register easily? Are there any mad rules I need to be aware of?

    Hi agency, are you italian? Cuz I am.

    I guess you are trying to register a .it domain, am I right?

    Yeah, in italy we have this thing that .it domains has to be registered sending by fax some documents (L.A.R. Lettera Assunzioni Responsabilità) where basically you take responsability for the name and the content of your domain.
    (So they can trace you easily in case)

    PLus, you have to be a EU citizen to be able to register a .it domain.

    And yeah, I confirm the crazy rules about transfering (other letters to send other places, but not sure who and where and how).

    I've always gone for .com domains because of all of this.

    Not italian but the domains work well with a couple of ideas I have, the "it" works well - for example youu could have the domain "sell.it" etc.

    Thanks for your help, I think I will leave it for now and maybe register at a later date. EU citizenship not a problem though.

    I am Italian as well. I never purchased any Italian Domains but I dealt with an Italian Company for domain & hosting. It was a huge headache...I am glad things in US are so simple when it comes to domains.
