Summary

Any legal entity that is established in any country can apply for a domain name in Turkey. There is no limit to the number of the names that an entity can register as long as it is able to provide the documentation needed to register the domain names. Only a second-level domain name can be registered (i.e., com.tr, net.tr, mil.tr, gov.tr, edu.tr, etc).

A trademark application can be also acceptable for applying to a domain name, provided that both applications have to be identical. In case of any rejection to the trademark application, the domain name shall be canceled within 30 days from that event.
The Middle East Technical University is the ccTLD registry in Turkey responsible for Turkey’s name space.

Entities are also allowed to reserve domain names by writing “reserve” to the name server and IP number fields on the application form. The form may be amended for an active use of the name later on.

A domain name may include a maximum of 12 and a minimum of 2 characters containing letters, numbers and/or (-). There is a period of one-year opposition to a new domain name registration.

It is noteworthy that the party requesting registration of this name certifies that, to her/his knowledge, the use of this name does not violate trademark or other statues. Registering a domain name does not confer any legal rights to that name and any disputes between parties over the rights to use a particular name are to be settled between the contending parties using normal legal methods.
