.JOBS Domain Name Rules and Requirements

Common Domain Name Rules

PD Hosting provides 2nd Level Domain Registration, under .JOBS.

Domain Theft Protection feature is supported for .JOBS domain names.

JOBS Domain Name Registration

A .JOBS domain name may be Registered for 1 to 10 years.

Registration request for a .JOBS domain name will be verified by the Registry, prior to domain name activation. The Registry has up to 90 days to render their decision to either approve the request or deny it.

The Registry retains the right to reserve domain names from registration eligibility. The Registry will not permit the validation of .JOBS registrations for names that fall into one of the four categories on the Reserved List Policy, outlined below.

The ability to secure a generic word in .JOBS is dependent upon the legal or commonly known company name of the Registrant. If the Registrant is not known by the name then the Registrant will not be able to register the name.

Additionally, various generic terms and identifiers, such as geographic names (major cities, countries, etc.), industry and occupational classifications, profane words and other terms of common interest to the HR Community are either Registry-reserve words or otherwise reserved from registration.

A .JOBS domain name has a 4 day Money Back Grace Period.

Upon Registering a .JOBS domain name, you may not Transfer-Away from PD Hosting, until 60 days.

.JOBS domain names do not support Internationalized Domain Names (IDN).

Reserved word categories

– Occupational and industry names (e.g. nursing.jobs, accounting.jobs, retail.jobs)

JOBS Domain Name Renewal

A .JOBS domain name may be Renewed for 1 to 10 years.

Upon Expiry of a .JOBS domain name:
– Any service such as email, website, etc., configured for this domain name would stop functioning, until the domain name is Renewed.
– If the .JOBS domain name is not Renewed until 36 days, the domain name would get Deleted and would slip into Redemption Grace Period.
