WHY .TW? - As the next frontier of global e-business, .TW presents companies everywhere with an unprecedented opportunity to make their presence known in the Taiwan marketplace. Now is an ideal time for companies to protect their brand identities in .TW.

How many years can I register .TW names?
The minimum registration period is 1 year, and the maximum is 10 years.

Is there a Nexus requirement for Registrants?
No. Under recently announced .TW policy, registrars may accept .TW registrations from registrants worldwide. After launch, any business or organization, worldwide, can register a .com.tw or .org.tw name under a new liberalized policy that no longer restricts .TW registrations to Taiwanese entities.

We will offer third level domain names in:
.com.tw (business)
.org.tw (organizations)
.idv.tw (individuals)

What is a third level domain name?
Third level domain names consist of three parts (like in .co.uk names). For example, in the third level domain name example.com.tw, "TW" would be the top level part, "COM" would be the second level part, "EXAMPLE" would be the third level part which is the part you register.

What is a second level domain name?
Second level domain names consist of two parts (like in .com or .info names). For example, in the second level domain name example.tw, "TW" would be the top level part (TLD), and "EXAMPLE" would be the second level part (SLD) which is the part you register. Both parts representing the domain name.

Are second-level registrations (.TW) being offered in addition to third-level registrations?
Not at the present time, although TWNIC and NeuLevel intend to accept second-level .TW registrations under a new policy in the near future. Additional details will be provided as they become available.
