.asia restrictions will be lifted


    The registration of .asia domain names will be simplified on July 15. It is no longer necessary to provide a contact in the Asia Pacific region, or to use a trustee service.

    Regarding existing .asia domain registrations, the trustee contact will be replaced with the owner contact. We will implement these changes in our system on July 15 between 15:00 and 19:00 UTC. During this time no .asia transactions are possible.

    Background of the changes is the migration of the .asia registry system to the new Afilias Shared Registry System and the updated .asia Charter Eligibility Declaration Requirement Policies.
