Many country-based registries do not assign domain names the same way, and may require a "local presence" or "proxy service". This means registration could require a company to be located in the particular country, or may require an administrative contact with a physical address in that particular country. The 101domain Trustee Service is all-inclusive and provides the flexibility needed to register domains in any country of the world.

101domain can provide a local contact for many of the countries that include this type of requirement and can also help with the registration. Since 1999, 101domain has continually grown and expanded not only it's own local presence worldwide, but also its network of trustees, and now has a substantial list of reliable and trusted partners including IP firms and other legal professionals in many countries.

How to buy a Trustee service?

101domain has contracted with local companies/trustees worldwide to make this process easy and affordable.

  • step 1
    Choose a domain name. If the domain requires a local presence in that country, you will have the option to order Trustee Service for that country.
  • step 2
    Order the service. A registration may simply require a local administrative contact and you/your company will still be the owner of the domain name, requiring no contracts, making it easy to maintain registrations for you or your company in every country of the world.
  • step 3
    Sign a contract if necessary. During this process, you may be asked to sign a contract defining the right of ownership to the domain name as well as the rights and liabilities between the trustor (you) and the trustee.
