Authentication and the Data Required

What is authentication?

All holders of a .travel name must be approved to hold a .travel name by having their eligibility reviewed. That review of eligibility is called “authentication.”

How will .travel know that I’ve been authenticated?

All authentications are confirmed by .travel. You will be send a Unique Identication Number (UIN) by .travel. You will use that number when you register any .travel names in the future. Your UIN is permanent and will not change. It may be revoked if your eligibility changes.

Is my authentication valid forever?

No. Organizations can change. Your organization might merge, be sold or sell assets during the time you hold a .travel domain name. For that reason, you are required to confirm annually that your authentication information has not changed.

Does authentication let me choose and guarantee a name?

No. Authentication gives .travel the information to determine that you are eligible for a name.

What are the steps in authentication?

  1. Visit and authenticate by submitting an application.
  2. Upon receipt of application, you will receive a Unique Identification Number (UIN).
  3. A confirmation email will be sent showing your eligibility.
  4. Contact an approved .travel Registrar with your UIN number and the name(s) you’re interested in purchasing.

What authentication information will I have to supply?

You are required to supply your name, contact information, and current URL, if you have one.
