.TM – Pricing changes and 1-year registrations

The registry for the ccTLD .TM in Turkmenistan, NIC.TM, has announced that from 1 June 2024 it is to transition from an initial 10-year domain name registration to the 1-year registration industry standard and new pricing will come into effect as follows:

Current Pricing:

  • 10-year Registration: USD 800/domain name
  • Renewal price: USD 80/year

Pricing from 1 June 2024:

  • Domain Name Registration: USD 400/year
  • Domain Name Renewal: USD 400/year

You may wish to consider renewing your .TM domain names before this price increase comes into effect to take advantage of the current pricing.

The registry is also, in collaboration with WIPO, to implement TrustMeasurement.TM (“TM.TM”) in the .TM TLD by 1 June 2024.  This service will offer the validation of domain name holders by NIC.TM registrars and trademark lawyers, so that domain holders can earn a clickable “kite mark” for their websites, which verifies the domain in a pop-up window linked to the TM.TM database.  Details are being finalised and we will send an update in due course.
