Curacao CW domain

.CW Domain

Since october 10, 2010, Curaçao recieved his status as an autonomous country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Therefore Curacao became eligable for his own domain extension .CW. Since february 1, 2012, a domainname with the .CW extension can be registered.

.AN Domains are beeing replaced

Up to the present day, the top-level-domain .AN is commonly used in Curacao. This extension will be replaced gradually by the new .CW extension. On october 31, 2014, the extension .AN will officially cease to exist. However, starting from october 31, 2013, the deletion- and replacing process will already start. Domainholders of .AN are strongly advised to apply for their .CW counterpart.

Current .AN Domain name holders will have the first choice for the same domain name in the .CW ccTLD zone. You have the opportunity to do so until August 31st, 2012. Till then, the rate of .AN to .CW conversion is Nafl. 45,00. After that date the fee is Nafl. 90,00 .

Regulated .CW

The regulation stipulates that the organization or entity requesting a domain name present an official proving their official presence in Curacao. For instance this could be a registration at the local Chamber of Commerce ("Kamer van Koophandel"). For entities or organizations not registered on the island or who are not registered at the Chamber of Commerce, third level domain names are made available. These are in the form of (e.g. .COM.CW or name.NET.CW).

Costs of a .CW domain

Unfortunately we cannot help you to apply for a .CW domain as this needs to done by the official representative of your company. Also, because Computer Center UNA Curacao uses his own pricing system, a .CW domainname is not included in our hosting products.

The CW_DomReg domain registrar has regulated the price for the registration of a .cw domain. The initial fee of Nafl.180,00 ($100.00) is for a period of 2 years or parts thereof. The fee for each subsequent year after that 2 year period is Nafl. 90,00 ($50.00) per year. This fee covers the registration and maintance of the domain name. The fee is directly payable to de CW_DomReg domain registrar. Changes to these fees are subject to changes at any time. Changes will be announced ahead of time on the UNA website .

Tip: We cannot assist you by applying for a .CW domain, however... if you apply for a .CW domain, why not apply for the .COM as well? A .COM is included in our hosting products. We can make this a forward domain, so that both domainnames point to the same website.

Applying for a .CW domain registration

The organization or entity requesting a domain name need to prove their official presence in Curacao. Only the official representative can request for a .CW domainname by Computer Center UNA, which is the official .CW domain registrar.
