.SK Local Requirements Removed
The registry for .sk, the ccTLD of Slovakia, has announced changes to the restrictions for .sk. Beginning 31 May 2017, the restriction that the registrant has to be local in Slovakia will be removed.
In addition, since local trustees will no longer be necessary the registry will no longer allow WHOIS protection or local trustees. The WHOIS details must reflect the details of the registrant.
When registering a .sk domain, private persons will have to fill his/her date of birth (this won't be shown on the WHOIS record). Legal persons and companies will have to fill in its ID (VAT number).
If you are currently using Lexsynergy's Local Presence service for your .sk domain, we will work with you over the coming months to update the information on the registration. If you have any questions about these policy changes, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
