It is a new change that has been in preparation for a few years in the digital world of Turkey.
Indeed, the administration of extensions in Turkey (.com.tr, .net.tr and .org.tr…) has been entrusted to .TR Network Information Systems (“TRABİS”) which will be incorporated under the Information and Communication Technologies Authority (“BTK”).
With TRABIS, changes will therefore occur in the process of assigning domain names.
The allocation of domain names under the extensions com.tr, net.tr and org.tr, under this new system will be liberalized and will answer to the principle of “first come, first served” (without required supporting documents).
As a reminder, under the management of NIC.TR, it was necessary to justify a trademark or the name of the company with an official document to register a .com.tr (the most used extension).
It will be easier to register a domain name in Turkey in a few weeks.
This change of rules was initially planned for January 2022 but has not happened yet.
BTK will announce soon the official dates and we hope to be able to confirm this liberalization of .com.tr, .net.tr and .org.tr during February 2022.
Do not hesitate to prepare your orders and contact your consultants and account managers to check your .com.tr domain names portfolio.
