The NET.GT domains are ideal for Educational institutions. The most visible advantages are greater availability of domain names compared to generic domains, as well as highlighting your organization geographically in Guatemala.
.gt is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Guatemala. As from 29 May 2012, .gt second level registrations are available.
Activation of the domain name within a maximum of 4 business hours after processing the payment.
30 days for renewal after expiration. After that date, it would be canceled and could be registered by any other person.
This extension does not require residency requirements for registration.
This extension does not require technical requirements for registration.
To carry out domain transfers you will need your current provider to give you with the AuthCode or EPP-Key of the domain, with it you demonstrate the ownership of the domain.
Transfers take 5-7 days to complete. Some registrars allow you to accept transfers manually, contact your current provider and find out if they offer this type of service, so the transfer will be completed the same day.
The domains, once the transfer is complete, extend the expiration date by one year.
You can renew your domain at any time, this process usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes to complete.
It is possible to request the cancellation of a domain, you must do it via ticket (support area). Keep in mind that the cancellation does not imply the payment of the amount paid by the domain.
The modification of DNS is immediate, keep in mind that they will have to propagate through the network, this process usually takes between 2 and 48 hours to propagate correctly, so the previous server could appear active during that time.
In order to proceed with an ownership change of many domains, it's necessary that both the current and new owner accept this change. Once the ownership change is completed the domain is locked for transfers for a 60-day period, during this time the domain won't be able to be transferred to another registrar.
