Registration of the Norwegian .no domain could be really problematic because of the strict guidelines introduced by the competent registry called Norid. So only natural or legal persons resident in Norway are allowed to buy and register .no web addresses. Furthermore the service fees for registration and management of the .no domain are higher than international average. On the contrary the co.no domain offers a more liberal registration: Every interested webmaster is allowed to buy and register his own third-level domain without any restrictions. These differences concerning the registration of Norwegian domains led several times to disputes between the registries.
Individuals as well as companies can benefit from the advantages of this subdomain, especially if the registration of the Norwegian .no domain has failed because auf the high standards of the registry Norid. When choosing your Internet address between 3 and 63 characters are available. Numbers and pure numeric domains are possible, but unfortunately special characters are currently still not allowed.
In total, approximately 580,000 .no domains have been registered, including the number of registered co.no domains. Especially in Norway and the Scandinavian area this third-level domain enjoys a great popularity, but also companies related to Scandinavia use the subdomain. In the case of rejection of a .no domain registration, the third-level domain is beneath the Swedish .se domain and the Danish .dk domain a popular and often chosen alternative.
