History

  • December 1, 1992 - Registered in root zone
  • April 13, 2012 - DNSSEC enabled in root zone
  • 2nd level domains

    To remove the risk of cyber squatting, registration of second-level domains directly below .ua is restricted to owners of registered trade marks, who may register a domain name similar to that of the trade mark in question. However you can register third-level domains beneath some of the following:

  • com.ua - paid, commercial organisations, one of the most popular
  • edu.ua - free, available only to proved educational organisations.
  • gov.ua - free, available only to governmental organisations
  • net.ua - paid, network service providers
  • in.ua - paid, domains for individuals
  • pp.ua - free, domains for individuals
  • org.ua - paid, other organisations (non-commercial), individuals
  • There are also second-level domains which are region-specific. These are less popular than the above list (making domain names more available) but they are sometimes restricted to organisations exclusively from within the region.
