If you wish to register a .coop domain name the owner needs to be a "cooperative". The cooperative is a form of self-organization of producers and consumers, aimed at increasing the economic power and the achievement of economies of scale.
If the owner is not cooperative, but wants to build a website especially for the benefit of cooperatives, he may also qualify.
Minimum registration period:
The minimum registration period is 1 year, the maximum is 10 year
An epp key will be requested
No support for IDN. Only default Latin characters (without accents) are supported. Other characters (which are only possible via IDN) are not allowed to be used inside a domain name ending in .coop.
DNSSEC is not supported by .coop at this time
The name can be reactivated up to 30 days after its expiry date without extra charges.
After the end of the initial quarantaine period, the domain name remains reserved for the previous owner during 39 days. Reactivating the domain name at that point will however cost € 80,00 on top of the registration fee.
