Registration with an Internet service provider

As a rule, .at domains are registered with an Internet service provider, who will usually offer complete packages (services such as e-mail, web space, ...) incl. an annual domain fee at the Internet service provider's rates. In this case, nic.at will not bill you directly, but will instead bill the Internet service provider who is responsible for the domain on the cut-off date. (As the domain holder, you can inquire about your domain's cut-off date by e-mail to service@nic.at.)

Registration with nic.at

If you merely want to register a .at domain and require no additional services or if your .at domain has already been registered directly with nic.at, then the fee for delegation (registration) and for use during the first year is to be paid during the registration process. You will receive subsequent invoices annually 45 days before invoice due date. Please note that in order to be timely, your cancellation for the domain in question must be delivered to our office within one day of the cut-off date at latest, otherwise the already issued invoice will remain valid.

Electronic invoices

Since electronic nic.at invoices feature an "advanced digital signature", they are recognized in accordance with EU Directive 2001/115/EC and Ordinance of the Federal Minister of Finance of December 2003 (Federal Law Gazette II No. 583/2003) and are therefore also VAT deductible.

When a domain is administrated by a registrar, the administrative workload on the part of nic.at is substantially reduced, as the registrar takes care of administration directly. The registrar is obliged, for example, to check all customer applications independently and thereby ensure that all contractual obligations are complied with. Then, the registrar processes the applications directly via a technical interface without additional control by nic.at. As a rule, all customer support is likewise provided by the registrar. Moreover, registrars receive a collective invoice from nic.at, considerably reducing the workload for nic.at, as no individual invoices need to be issued to the domain holder

Security Lock is additional protection for your .at-domain. If the service is activated, any amendments to the domain must be explicitly authorised. This means that third parties - such as your provider/registrar - can still request changes, but these will only be implemented following your confirmation after you receive a link by e-mail. Invoices will be sent annually to the invoice recipient, who will be notified at the time of application.

The Security Lock service costs EUR 250.00 (excl. VAT) per year and .at domain. If the annual fee is not paid on time, the Security Lock will be deactivated automatically. Invoices will be sent annually to the invoice recipient specified at the time of application. If someone other than the domain holder is the invoice recipient, the invoice recipient indicated must pay the invoice. Just like for the domain fee, the domain holder is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the Security Lock is paid.

We particularly recommend Security Lock to domain holders whose business activities are based on unlimited accessibility on the web. The same applies to companies for whom problems with the domain could mean a loss of reputation or uncertainty for customers. With Security Lock you make your domain even more secure. 

To set up the Security Lock service, you have to log in to your "customer login area" and there you can select the desired .at domains and activate Security Lock.

Security Lock will be activated and billable immediately, and is valid for an indefinite time.

In order to effect rescission within the specified period, it is sufficient if the consumer sends a notification exercising his/her right of rescission before the end of the fourteen-day period. Notifications of rescission are not subject to any specific formal requirements. In order to exercise their right of rescission, consumers must notify nic.at of the rescission by sending an unequivocal declaration in writing (e.g. by post, fax or e-mail). A sample rescission form is available here.
