Rules for Allocation of a License to use the .cy Domain Name
A license to use a Domain Name will only be granted under the following terms and conditions:
It is not already allocated to a third party and an application by a third party for the same Domain Name is not pending; It is understood that a first-come first-served principle applies and preference is given to Registrants who actually carry on business in Cyprus.
It does not contain any obscene words and names incorporating foul language or names that do not comply with the Laws of Cyprus;
It does not relate to politicians or political or historical activities or for which permission is required from a competent Cyprus Authority unless and except such permission is given and proven to us;
It is not generic, sectoral or a fundamental name which identifies a branch, group, activity, professional or business sector. Issuing a License to use such a name could unfairly imply certain or exclusive rights appertaining to it. We will try to ensure that no domain name has an unfair advantage over another Issuing of such a License may only be issued under exceptional circumstances whereby the authority or entity representing the sector or group establishes a name allocation plan which preserves the rights in the names of all parties affected.
