Domain names that are associated with municipal or provincial public service, or are otherwise of public interest, may not be available for registration. In addition, certain names that are deemed to contain keywords that are generic, popular, or potentially high-traffic may be considered Premium domains. If you are concerned that a domain you are registering may be a Premium name, please contact us.
Yes, the .quebec domain supports International Domain Names (IDNs). Once your register the ASCII version of the domain, the French character variants will be reserved for you and will be available for registration at no extra cost.
During the Launch Phase of the .quebec domain, there are four different Priority categories that are used to organize the distribution of domains once the Launch Phase is complete. The domains are allocated based on the highest to lowest priority, from Priority 1 to Priority 4. Two or more orders within the highest priority will go to an auction. All of the pre-orders received during the Launch Phase are resolved at the same time.
Each Priority has a specific application. A Priority 3 order can be placed if you are an entity with a legal seat in Quebec, while a Priority 4 order has no conditions.
