Introduction

To register a .sm domain name it is always mandatory to contact an authorized Reseller, which will support you for any kind of matter concerning the domain name itself (price, renewal, specific documentation, modify of Owner Data, deletion, etc ...).
If you don't choose an authorized Reseller you will be automatically assigned to TIM San Marino S.p.A..
The whole instructions on this web site are independent from the Reseller you choose.


Registration charges

The Registration Authority regulates the registration charges, manages and controls payments only with Authorized Resellers.
The Resellers individually manage their charges for .sm domain names to their customers following their marketing strategies, so it's recommended to examine Resellers official web sites for any kind of informations about registration charges for customers.

Detailed Instructions

The .sm domain name you wish to register must be in RFC822 format (i.e.: telecomitalia.sm) and must be compatible with the Regulation.
For every .sm domain name two entities are involved (Individuals or Legal Entities) that cover a specific role.
The first role is the Owner, that is the one that is registering the domain name for uses allowed by the Regulation.
The second role is the Technical Contact, that is the one that manage the information about the name servers, as well as the one to contact in case of any technical issue about the domain. It may also coincide with the Owner.

1. Letter for Accountability Assumption (LAR)

The Owner has to fully fill in the Letter for Accountability Assumption (LAR), sign it and then send it to the Registration Authority.
Depending on the legal configuration of the owner, the proper document must be used: LAR for Individuals or the LAR for Legal Entities.
CAUTION: the LAR is in italian language and no changes or translations are permitted. To help you to fully understand what you are going to undersign a translation of the two documents are available here:
Independent from your legal classification, "Domain name", "Owner contact" and "Technical contact" (which in the LAR is called "provider/mantainer") are mandatory data.
For Individuals the Owner data is the first name, the last name, the date and place of birth, the residency street address, city, country, and postal code, the phone number, the fax number and an email address.
For Legal Entities (Public administrations, Associations, Legal persons, companies, individual firms, professionals, etc.) the Owner data is first name and last name of the person that legally represents the organization, the organization name, the legal street address, city, country, and postal code, the phone number, the fax number and an email address.
In both cases the only optional field is the fax number, all the other fields are mandatory.
The Owner email will be used for any message from the Registration Authority, so it must be a working email and must be read from the Owner itself.
The Letter for Accountability Assumption (LAR) must be sent:

The MRE is made up of four section:
  • 'Domain Name'
    The domain field must be the name of the .sm domain name.
