.MY : Relaxation of registration rules for .MY domain names

.MY domain names
.MY domain names

Due to the strict allocation criteria, connecting a .MY domain name for a company not located in Malaysia was difficult.

MYNIC, the Malaysian registry, wanted to make significant changes for 2023 in order to globalize its .MY domain names.

The registry has therefore decided to remove local presence restrictions on .MY.

This change means that anyone can register a .MY domain name on a “first-come, first-served” basis.

It means that it’s now possible to register a .MY domain name in the name of a European company and no priority phase has been planned.

Please note that it does not apply to the .COM.MY extension, which stays limited to Malaysian entities.

Do not hesitate to contact our teams to secure your .MY domain.
