Domain Names in Israel
In these days of international commerce it is important to consider all aspects of domain name registration. Domain names and their related website can be invaluable sales and marketing tools. Domain names may be registered through domain and name registrars accredited by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

A company may choose from among available international domain name registrations (Top Level Domains – TLDs) such as .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .pro and .eu, and also consider country specific TLDs, such as, .de., etc.

In Israel, according to the current rules of domain name registration there is no examination procedure. Domain names are granted on a "first come first served" basis. The Internet Society of Israel (ISOC-IL) is responsible for the allocation of names under the .il top-level domain. Rules governing the allocation of domain names may be found at In case of domain name conflicts, ISOC offers dispute resolution administered by an External Advisory Committee which will judge according to the ISOC Rules and a wide variety of Israeli laws, but will also be guided by international dispute resolutions rules such as ICANN rules and Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) rules applied by WIPO.
