a) Acceptable Characters
No characters other than a combination of the following characters may be included in a Domain Name Registration:
i. Letters a through z (no accents of any kind will be accepted). Note that Domain Names are not case sensitive. This means there will be no distinction made between upper case letters and lower case letters.

2.12 For Registration Purposes there shall be at least two configured and working name servers with addresses specified at the time of application.
2.13 Upon application for registration of a new Domain Name, the Registrant agrees to be bound by all published policies and terms of service. Where the Registrant makes use of an agent, the agent agrees that it has made its client aware of all policies and that the client agrees to be bound by those policies.
2.14 The BermudaNIC Registrar reserves the right to change any and all policies at any time, providing that such policy changes become effective upon posting on this and other websites.
