No not really. ISNIC's staff does assist customers (if asked) with registration of .is-domains, but not in coming up with an idea for a good domain. When creating a good domain it comes down to language skills, the feel for words and above all, Creativity.
The .is top level domain ending goes very well with many words, and can, as such facilitate the construction of good and easy to remember domains.
For a long time short domains were thought to be much better than longer ones. This could, however, be wrong in some cases. Some specialists contend that well formulated and descriptive domains score higher in search engines on the internet.
Here are a few helpful things to keep in mind when registering a good .is domain:
ISNIC's offices are closed today, Ascension Day, which is a public holiday in Iceland. We will be back in office at 09.00 (GMT) on Friday.
The ISNIC Team.
First Day of Summer is today! This day is a public holiday in Iceland and always falls on a Thursday between the 19th and 25th of April. We will be back in the office tomorrow, Friday. Thank you for your support during the winter and have a happy summer.
As the number of .is domains reached 57316 around midnight the first of april 2016 ISNIC can no longer register new .is domains. Our registration database is full so the only .is domains available for now are used domains. You can either buy one from a current registrant or you can come to our office in Reykjavik before 16.00 today and ask if any domains got free today.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and as soon as we install a bigger database we will be able to register new .is domains again.
Have a wonderful weekend.
ISNICs office will, like always, be closed for five days over the Easters, i.e. from March 24. (Maundy Thursday) to March 28. (Easter Monday). We will be back to our desks on Tuesday March 29.
As always you can register, renew, redelegate, transfer and delete domains 24/7 using our website. The easiest way to find your login information is to type your domain name in the search window on our front page, click on "Lost PW" link by your email address, and proceed from the email you got from ISNIC.
Thank you for registering a .IS domain.
Happy Easter everyone. Be careful, travel slowly.
The ISNIC Team.
ISNIC - Internet á Íslandi hf. manages the registry for the .is country-code top-level domain according to the principles specified in the registration rules of .is domains.
The purpose of these rules is to ensure the security, efficiency and transparency of the domain delegation and registration process. The registration of a domain confers rights to the use of the domain name according to ISNIC rules at any time but does not confer ownership of the domain.
