Dnnews.it dedicates this section to foreign domainers interested in investing on .it and italian related domains.
The good news for you is that our domain market is years backward than in most of any other developed country, mainly because of an “opaque” legislation as well as the scarce information about domaining publicly available. On one hand this is a shame for us, but on the other hand it is a unique opportunity to take advantage of this gap when, sooner or later , italian market will align with the rest of the world.
It is not a secret that some top domainers from Germany, Spain and few overseas have already started to pick italian domains to diversify their portfolios and we are sure there is still plenty of opportunities to make profits for clever early birds.
For more information you can always contact us for any specific needs (i.e. article/news translation, marketing cooperation, advertising, referrals about brokers, legal aid, escrow service, etc.). Just contact us email@example.com and we will be more than happy to assist you.

For this purpose the assembly agreed about the need to set an organization/association of web investors and domainers, with the purpose to assist and help the NIC in updating to the new market condition rules and procedures and try to gain a more balanced position for Respondents which are underdog in current UDRP complaints.
