.BE Domain History & Purpose
Registration of domains under the .BE ccTLD (country code Top Level Domain name) started in 1989. The domain extension was introduced to serve for registrants from Belgium. In the beginning, some restrictions for the registrants were applied, but they were dropped with the liberalizations introduced in the end of 2000 which made possible registration of .BE domains by anyone - individuals, companies, local citizens and foreigners. At the same time the registration fee was reduced which resulted in tripling the number of registered domains only in a matter of a few months. The number of registered .BE domains still continues to grow steadily each month and it is expected to surpass the one million mark soon, turning .BE into one of the top ccTLDs by number of registrations. One feature contributing to the popularity of the ccTLD is that many words in different languages end with suffix "-be", so .BE domain names can be used to form words from the entire domain.
.BE Domain Registration & Reselling Services
Domains from the ccTLD .BE can be registered and resold with all programs offered by Resellers Panel - for example Domain Reselling; Free Resellers Program, cPanel-Reseller Program; VPS (Virtual Private Server); Dedicated Servers and Semi-Dedicated Servers. It is possible to register .BE domains for up to one year. Registration services for the .BE ccTLD are provided by Resellers Panel as a registrar certified by ICANN.
The registration procedure is very simplified - you just have to type the domain that you want to be registered and submit the form to see if it is available for registration. If the domain is free for registration, you can go on with the registration procedure and become an owner of the domain name. You can search for another .BE domain in case the domain has already been taken. Note that transfers of .BE domains to Resellers Panel are not possible.
