Can any name be registered as a domain name?

All domain names will end with the preferred category. The domain name label to the left of the chosen domain name should reflect applicant’s company/personal name. However nicknames are common. Because registration is on a `first come, first served` basis, domain names must not:
  • have already been registered to another applicant
  • be the subject of an application currently under consideration by MYNIC or
  • using any sensitive/vulgar words that is prohibited by MYNIC

Doing a search using the MYNIC Whois Service will reveal if your chosen domain name is available.
