Registering the .UA domain
According to the information provided by hostmaster.ua, only 557 thousand addresses are registered with the .UA domain. A huge number of beautiful web address names are waiting for their lucky owners. For comparison, 128 million sites are using the famous ‘.com’ domain. There is only one nuance to consider. The .UA domain only accepts the owners of trademarks officially registered in Ukraine. This stops many who want to get a sound address for the site.
How to get a .UA domain?
There are two ways to do so:
It is up to you to choose.
General registration algorithm:
How long does it take to register a trademark?
There are two registration options:
The fast option costs more but has a huge benefit. If you chose to use the normal option, someone else might take your domain name before you register it. For example, you have selected the domain name vkresle.ua. You apply for the "VKRESLE" trademark and wait a year and a half. While you are waiting, somebody else can apply for the same trademark, but using a fast option. That means, that they will obtain their certificate and successfully register the domain much faster. In this case, you will not be able to register the chosen name anymore, and all the waiting time will go to waste. To avoid this, you need to weigh the risks. If the trademark is popular, it is definitely better to pay for a fast option.
Why can they refuse to register my trademark?
Refusal to register a trademark will result in the inability to buy a .UA domain. There are several reasons for refusal:
Fonts and characters in domain names
If the trademark name was written in Cyrillic, then its translation into the domain name will be made using the transliteration rules. For example, the “домен.уа” will turn into “domen.ua” (as you can see, the words might get misspelled this way). The symbols and characters, that are used to give the brand a unique name (such as @, &, or :) will not be used when creating a domain name.
UA is a regional domain extension (ccTLD). Regional domain areas are assigned to countries, states or regions. Often consist of two characters, for example .RU, .US, .EU, .BZ, .IN. There are also gccTLD domain zones. These include national domain zones (ccTLDs) and it is open to all (gTLDs). These zones include the Micronesian domain extension .FM, which is used for radio and music everywhere.
