What is the Trustee Service for .it domains?

The Italian registry has an additional requirement for a .it domain registration:

  • The address in the registrant details has to be located within the European Union.

When registering a .it domain with an address outside of the European Union, we automatically replace this with a postal address to ensure that your domain complies with the rules. This is called the Trustee Service add-on and enables you to register the domain without having a trusted contact person within the EU. The costs for using this Trustee Service add-on for .it domains is €9,00 ex VAT (€10,89) yearly.


Disabling the Trustee Service

If you no longer require the Trustee Service you can cancel it easily. For an existing domain name simply update the registrant details to an address within the European Union in your control panel and click save. We will automatically check the requirements on local presence and notify you if the change is successful.


Step 1

Log in to your controlepaneel, navigate to the 'Domain & Hosting' tab and click your domain name on the left.


Step 2

Scroll down on the right side down to the 'Your domain contact information' section and click on the cogwheel.

Alternatively, don't scroll down, but click on 'Manage' > 'Manage contact information'.
