Register a domain name
Do you want to register a domain name? Although registering a domain name is inexpensive, its value in the marketplace can be as great as that of a brand or trade name. That is why you need to make sure that you have the right domain names, plus any variants that may be required, and that their registration is in order. BIT supports all common and less common top-level domains. That is one part of the picture. The other is that the domain name servers (DNS servers) of the ISP where your domain is registered must be reliable. If an email message addressed to you or a request for a web page does not hit a DNS server or the server is misconfigured, you will be untraceable and an error message will return.
Is your domain name still available? Perform the check!
You can check whether your domain name is still available by using the domain name check below.
BIT focuses on Internet services for business users and therefore ensures the required continuity, both technically and procedurally. We have a set of redundant DNS servers in our data center and, as an extra measure, a third one which operates completely outside our network. This way your mail will always arrive and your website can always be found. We automatically renew your registration every year and take action if there is an attempt to move your domain without your permission.

Free use of DNS services
BIT registers or transfers your domain names for you. All top level domains (TLDs) are supported, including .nl, .com, .org, .eu, .be and .de. You can also contact BIT for advice if your desired domain name is already in use by someone else. If your domain name has been registered via BIT, you can use our DNS services free of charge. Any changes we make to the DNS settings are also included in the annual registration fee for the domain name.
General terms and conditions for registrations
Each country has its own domain name extension (such as .nl for the Netherlands and .be for Belgium). The rules and conditions for all those extensions differ from each other. By registering a domain name you agree to the general terms and conditions of that particular extension. We have compiled these conditions for each country in one clear overview for you.
Your domain name is secure
To preserve the continuity of your organisation it is important that your domain name is protected against abuse. We offer a number of measures specifically to achieve this:
DNS hosting is a service that is often underestimated. Without DNS, nothing under your domain will work. BIT has taken great care to ensure the stability of its DNS platform. Many providers only host one DNS server. To minimise the risk of unavailability, BIT has multiple DNS servers, spread across different locations in the Netherlands. Naturally, our DNS servers support IPv6 and DNSSEC. DNS hosting can be purchased as a service, without registration. It is also possible to configure your own name server as a 'hidden master'. The BIT name servers automatically take over your configurations and are queried by the outside world.
