The following text is a shortened and descriptive version of the full registration policy text which highlights the relevant information.


Since .TIROL is intended to serve the community of the Tirolers in general, the group of eligible registrants is limited. Exclusively eligible to register a domain name under the top-level domain .TIROL is any natural person, legal person, organization or association of persons, if they can demonstrate that they have an economic, cultural, touristical, historical, social or any other connection to the Austrian federal state of Tirol.


A .TIROL domain name can only consist of digits (0-9), hyphens, and the lowercase letters a-z. It must neither start nor end with an hyphen. If the domain name has hyphens at the third and fourth place, the name must be the A-label of a valid IDN, according to the description and table contained in question 44. IDNs under .TIROL are supported in the Latin script. The minimum length of a domain is one (1), the maximum length sixty-three (63) characters. If the domain is an IDN, the maximum length is determined in accordance with RFC 5890 and RFC 5891.


To meet the requirements of ICANN to a community-based designation of the application, the registrant must use the .TIROL domain in an economic, cultural, touristical, historic, social or any other meaningful connection to the Austrian Federal State of Tirol.

Restrictions may include, but are not limited to a requirement that each registered domain name is used in conjunction with standard IP protocols such as http, https, smtp⁄mail, ftp, etc..

The .TIROL Registry will, from time to time in its sole discretion or upon evidence or advice conduct continuing or recurring audits of domain names registered to ensure continued compliance with these requirements. Failure to comply will result in a notice providing 20-days to comply. Non-compliance following such a notice period may result in take-down of the relevant domain name, at the discretion of the Registry.


The Registry will accept registration requests on a “first-come, first-served” basis. In the event an application does not meet the requirements of the Registry Policies, then such .TIROL domain names will remain in the general pool of available names. Before general availability and for reserved names other allocation mechanisms such as auctions or fixed premium prices may be used.


The Registry is entitled to lock, cancel, initiate the gTLD-deletion cycle or transfer domain names that do not meet the registration criteria. It will set-up a process for any questions and challenges that may arise from registrations. Complainants will be provided a single point of contact via the Registry’s website to submit any questions and complaints regarding alleged abuse. The Registry also follows the standard dispute policies as defined in Q 28 and Q 39.

In detail the following measures will be carried out by the Registry to enforce the policies:

- Policies against domain name abuse and an Eligibility Requirements Dispute Resolution Policy (ERDRP)

- Dispute Policy based on local law

- Anti-Abuse Policies

By these policies the Registry is allowed to block, delete or transfer domain names.
