.name is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) intended for the use of individuals' real names, nicknames, screen names, pseudonyms or other personal names. Domains can be registered on the second level (john.name) and the third level (john.doe.name). When a domain is registered on the third level (john.doe.name), the second level (doe.name in this case) is shared, and may not be registered. When the .name domain was first launched, only third level registrations (and forwarded e-mail addresses) were available; it was only later, in January 2004, that second level registrations were made available as well. When a domain is registered on the second level (doe.name), third level domains or e-mail addresses under this second level (john.doe.name and jane@doe.name) are associated with the second level domain, and may not be registered with the .name registry. The .name gTLD is intended for use by individuals and personalities, both fictional and real.. As a personal, unique and memorable identifier, .name addresses are increasingly being used as a natural address for Digital Identity applications.. The .name whois service is available at whois.nic.name, and there is a website where whois queries can be made at the .name whois website. The administrative and technical contacts for .name are the founders Hakon Haugnes and Geir Rasmussen..
