.BE - Belgium

Online Domain Name Extension Directory

Location: North Central Europe.

Domain Name availability: Open to everyone.

Registry: www.dns.be/en/home.php

Whois: whois.dns.be

Cost: About 10 euros per year.

Notes: Belgium seems to have taken the lead in Whois privacy - Not only must you copy a code from a gif image to access Whois, but also: "the address, the phone and fax number as well as the E-mail address of the domain name holder will be presented as images instead of plain text. In case the domain name holder is a private person, the phone and fax numbers of the domain name holder and the onsite technical contact(s) will not be shown at all." quote from dns.be .

.BE sites are promoted to the world as the place to "be" on the internet. Domain speculation is discouraged. The buyer begins a transfer of a .BE domain name. Transfer to a new agent (registrar) or new owner disolves all remaining time on the name.

About 500,000 .be names are registered. Another 500,000 were given away in the free period (see below). The .BE Registry allows the registration of two character names, but not one character names.

.BE domains were free for a period of time, although those domains may not be sold or transfered. Reportedly this applies to domains registered between November 1, 2005 and February 1, 2006.
