.NYC domain registration requirements

The .NYC top-level domain provides an online hub for the purposes of connecting New Yorkers with each other and allowing NYC-based businesses to establish connections in the global marketplace. This is the perfect domain extension for anyone who owns a business in NYC, writes about it, or markets products relating to NYC.

Only New York City businesses and organizations with a NYC address and individuals with a primary residence in NYC are eligible to register a .NYC domain name.
A registrant of a .NYC domain must be either:

- an individual whose primary place of domicile is a valid physical address in the City of New York (“Nexus Category 1 - Individual”);
- an entity/organization/company that has a physical street address in the City of New York (“Nexus Category 2 - Organization”).
New York / NY should be indicated in the City and State/Province fields for both Individual and Organization Nexus Categories. Registrants are to provide a valid street address and the corresponding zip code both in the Registrant set of information as well as in the .NYC Extended Attributes section:

If the registrant is an organization, you also need to check the “I'm registering on behalf of a company” box and fill in the Company Name and Job Title fields:

TIP: You may also fill in extended attributes in advance or after domain registration so that they are used for all your future registrations. Please refer to the “What are a domain's extended attributes?” article to know how.

That's it!
