dominios .de

You can register, transfer, or connect domains ending in .de to Squarespace if you have an address in Germany. This TLD is a great option if you have a business or professional presence in Germany and you want a domain that matches your location.

The .de TLD follows different rules than most other TLDs we offer. This guide covers all of these requirements and exceptions.

Tip: The .de TLD is a country code top-level domain (ccTLD), which works differently from a generic top-level domain (gTLD).

Browse the table below to learn about the unique features and rules of registering or transferring a domain ending in .de.

Tip: If you already own a .de domain and don’t want to manage it through Squarespace, you can keep it hosted with your current provider and connect it to your site. The rules in this section don’t apply if you connect a .de domain from another provider.

Your domain may be subject to state and local sales taxes. If your domain is subject to tax, you’ll see it added at checkout. To learn more, visit our guides on taxes in the United States, European Union, or Australia and New Zealand.

Address requirements

You must enter an address located in Germany to register or transfer the domain, then maintain it to keep the domain. If your address changes to a different country, your domain could be suspended without a refund.

Privacidad de Whois

La privacidad de WHOIS no está disponible.

Domain locking

Domains can't be locked.


You don’t need to take any action or verify your domain via email after registering or transferring. Your .de domain is verified automatically.

Registration contact options

There’s only an Owner contact. You won’t see Admin, Tech, or Billing contact options.

Five-day registration grace period

There’s no five-day grace period to cancel .de domains and no refunds.

Before you register the domain, ensure that you want to keep it. Double-check the domain for typos.

Transfer in registration term

A .de domain can only be registered for one year at a time. Transferring a .de domain to Squarespace gives you one new year of registration, but won’t carry over any remaining time from your previous provider.

Auto renew

All .de domains are charged for renewal 20 days before their official renewal date. Your charge date is listed under Renews On in the Domains panel.

Important things to note:

  • Your domain isn’t officially renewed until 20 days after your charge date.
  • The auto-renew option locks when your domain is within five days of renewal (15 days after your charge date).

To cancel an upcoming renewal, disable auto-renew at least 1 day before the Renews On date shown in your Domains panel.

Failed payments and expired domains

Para mantener un dominio .de activo y vinculado con tu sitio, cerciórate de tener una tarjeta de crédito válida vinculada con tu sitio. Si no podemos facturar el cargo en la tarjeta que tenemos registrada para tu sitio, intentaremos cobrarte cada cinco días después del primer cargo fallido. Si aún no es posible cargar tu tarjeta 20 días después de la fecha de pago, el dominio vencerá y dejará de conectarse con tu sitio. 

Una vez que venza tu dominio, tendrás un período de gracia de 30 días para renovar tu dominio a través de Squarespace. Para renovar un dominio vencido, primero debes comprobar que tu sitio esté activo y tenga vinculada una tarjeta de crédito válida, y, luego, comunicarte con nosotros


It’s not possible to edit nameservers.

Note that for most actions, you don’t need to edit a domain’s nameservers and can instead use custom DNS records.

Transfer away 60-day lock

You can transfer the domain away from Squarespace any time. You don’t need to wait the usual 60 days after registering or transferring it.

Note that any remaining time on your registration won’t carry over to your new provider.

Transfer away steps

To transfer your .de domain away from Squarespace:

  1. In the Domains panel, click the .de domain you’re transferring away.
  2. Click Send Transfer Authentication Code.
  3. El contacto del Propietario del dominio recibirá un mensaje de correo electrónico con la clave de transferencia. Le darás este código a tu nuevo proveedor de dominio para autorizar la transferencia.

La clave de transferencia vence 30 días a partir de que se emite, así que cerciórate de iniciar el proceso de transferencia en cuanto la recibas.

Hacer clic en Enviar la código de verificación de la transferencia más de una vez envía varias claves de transferencia únicas. Solo es válida la clave más reciente. Borra los mensajes anteriores para evitar confusiones. 

Why is my domain registration "in progress?"

If your .de domain has a yellow Registration in progress label in the Domains panel, it needs more time to fully resolve to your site. You don't need to take any action. After the domain is activated, your domain will have a green label in the Domains panel. 

Most .de domains take less than 24 hours to fully resolve, though it may take up to 72 hours. If your .de domain still isn't active after 72 hours, contact us and we'll take a look at your settings to ensure everything is set up correctly.
