Domain Registration Requirements

Certain requirements must be met if you are a government department or agency in Pakistan and wish to register a domain name. These requirements include:

Must be a Bona fide Educational Institute:

The first requirement for registering a domain is that the registrant must be an institute that operates solely to provide education and has a sizable active student enrollment. The name of the registrant institute must also reflect in the domain name. This is to ensure that a genuine educational institute uses the domain name.

Authorization Letter from Institue Head:

2ndly, a letter of authorization signed and stamped by the Principal or Head of the institute on the institute’s original stationary letterhead is required

CNIC Copy of Institute Head:

A copy of the authorized representative’s CNIC, like the Principal or Head of the institute, must also be provided to verify the identity of the person making the registration request.

Copy of Registration Certificate of Institute with Govt:

A copy of the registration of the educational institute with a government education body, e.g., the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan or the Punjab Higher Education Commission, etc., will be required.

Domain Name Must Reflect Institute Name:

The name of the registrant institute must also reflect in the domain name. For example, Quaid-i-Azam University has a domain, the abbreviation of the institute’s name, or for COMSATS University Islamabad.
