TLD specific


Registration of .COM.MY, .NET.MY, .ORG.MY and IDN has to contain an organization for all contact handles (owner, admin, tech, billing). .MY may have individual registrant. However the admin, tech and billing has to be an organization. Both Registrant (a business entity) and Administrative Contact must have local presence. Administrative Contact must be an employee of the Registrant organization.

It is responsibility of the partner to inform the Applicant that by submitting the Registration order, the Registrant confirms that the Registrant has read, understood, accepted and agreed to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement and MYNIC's applicable rules, policies and procedures, as amended and supplemented by MYNIC from time to time. Refer to the NIC Registration Agreement field under the Registry Information section above.
