Based on what principle are the domain names registered by the .it Registry?

The domain names are assigned by the .it Registry on a "first-come, first-served" basis, in other words the registrations will be dealt with by the Authority based on the order in which they are received.

Aruba shall send your request to the .it Registry only once the payment has been received.

ATTENTION! Domain names which were ordered before the 28/09/2009 will be assigned based on what time the .it Registry enters the LAR in the database.

This is done by respecting the order in which the Letter of Assumption of Responsibility is received by the Registry.
