Once the domain is registered

All Brazilian domain names registered with us are stored on our international server. Domains registered with us are automatically provided with their own under-construction page - this notifies potential registrants that the name has been acquired and is now registered. The under-construction page is offered free of charge and may be used indefinitely.

It is possible for Web and/or Mail forwarding to be provided for Brazilian domains.

Domain transfer/release fees are charged are by a majority of registrars, but Nominate make no charge to transfer a domain to another Brazilian domain name registrar.

Background

.br is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Brazil. It was administered by the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee (Comito Gestor da Internet no Brasil) until 2005 and now it's administered by Brazilian Network Information Center. A local contact is required for any registration. Registrations of domain names with Portuguese characters are also accepted.

With the exception of universities, the second-level domain is fixed and selected from a list that defines the category. For example, site.art.br is in the art (music, folklore etc.) category, and site.org.br is in the non-governmental organization ategory. Institutions of tertiary education were allowed to use the ccSLD .edu.br, although some use .com.br and others (mainly public universities) use .br. There are also some other few exceptions that were allowed to use the second level domain until the end of 2000. As of February 2007, most domain registrations ignore categories and register in the .com.br domain, which has over 90% of all registered domains. The .jus.br (Judiciary) domain has mandatory DNSSEC use.

.br is the most common Portuguese language Web site suffix, surpassing all other Portuguese-speaking countries' TLDs as well as .com in popularity.
