.AR Domain now available

Sep 19, 2019, 21:52 PM

The top level .AR domain names are now available for registration.

The .AR TLD is currently in a preference registration stage, meaning if you’ve registered domain names in the,, or TLDs, prior to 1st December 2015 you have until 9th of November 2019 to request the registration of the .AR equivalent domain names before the TLD goes into general public availability.

At the end of the preference registration stage, if only one request is received for the domain name, the domain will be registered to that applicant. If multiple applications are received, the priority to register the domain will be resolved through a raffle made by the City of Buenos Aires Lottery. Safenames will inform any customers if this is the case with their particular application(s).

With more than 500,000 registrations currently in place, we believe Argentinian domains still prove to be very popular. We would highly recommend any clients operating under,, or proceed with the application of the equivalent .AR domain name within the preference registration stage, helping to prevent any cybersquatting whilst also enhancing user experience through the use of a shorter domain name.
