Change of Practice in Registering Domain Names


The Board of Directors of the Albanian Authority on Electronic and Postal Communication (AKEP) amended the Regulation on Domain Names No. 437, of February 21, 2008 with its Decision No. 2252 of January 23, 2013.

The most important change is that foreign entities no longer need to have a local (Albanian) office or branch in order to register .al domain names. Foreign entities can now register .al domain names or have existing .al domain names transferred to them, pursuant to conditions prescribed by the Regulation on Domain Names. In the past, local presence was required.

Foreign entities may work through local registrars who are accredited by AKEP. The process of accreditation will commence on May 01, 2013.
