Registering 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.

How to get a .UA domain?

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.
The .UA domain extension supports Internationalized Domain Names. IDNs are foreign language domain names that include non-ASCII characters. You can register an IDN using the native language characters or standard punycode character format. If you enter the language characters, we convert it to punycode and register the punycode version with the registry. To view characters in an IDN, you must adjust your language settings in your Web browser. If you can't see the characters, you might need to install a foreign language pack. For more information, see the Help for your Web browser.
