  • The domain name "name" is a generic top-level domain in the Domain Name System of the Internet. It is intended for use by individuals for representation of their personal name, nicknames, screen names, pseudonyms, or other types of identification labels. The top-level domain was founded by Hakon Haugnes and Geir Rasmussen and initially delegated to Global Name Registry in 2001, and become fully operational in January 2002. Verisign was the outsourced operator for .name since the .name launch in 2002 and acquired Global Name Registry in 2008. On the .name TLD, domains may be registered on the second level and the third level. It is also possible to register an e-mail address of the form john@doe.name. Such an e-mail address may have to be a forwarding account and require another e-mail address as the recipient address, or may be treated as a conventional email address, depending on the registrar. When a domain is registered on the third level, the second level is shared, and may not be registered by any individual. Other second level domains like johndoe.name remain unaffected. When the name TLD was first launched, only third-level registrations were available.
