PROCEDURAL REGULATION FOR THE .LT TOP-LEVEL DOMAIN

 

Edition 2.0
Version 2.1
Date 2018-05-25

 

1. This Regulation defines the principles, requirements and conditions of procedural performance in the .lt domain. The appendix “Registrars” is considered to be a part of the Regulation.
2. The principles, requirements and conditions of the procedures must be followed by new and existing second level domain holders (present Registrants or gaining Registrants) in the .lt domain, Registrars, providing the domain-related services as well as persons seeking accreditation, as far as this is related to the special procedures applicable to them.
3. The terms and abbreviations used in this Regulation, including the appendix “Registrars”, are defined as follows:
3.1. Registry – Kaunas University of Technology (legal entity code 111950581) Internet Service Centre, which manages the .lt domain.
3.2. Registry services – the services provided to domain holders including domain name check and registration, domain records inclusion to the WHOIS database and listing it for a specific number of terms, records on keeping the domain in the DNS servers from the domain registration until the domain deletion. Registry terms of services comply with the principles, requirements and conditions determined in this Regulation.
3.3. Accreditation agreement – a termless agreement between the Registry and the Registrar regarding the latter’s right to perform the permitted procedures in the .lt domain. The accreditation agreement is concluded in writing during the accreditation procedure as determined in the appendix “Registrars” of the Regulation.
3.4. Blocked label – words or phrases inappropriate to be used publicly in domain names. The blocked label list is created, changed or supplemented by the Registry. This list is not disclosed or distributed by other means due to the nature of the labels.
3.5. DAS – domains administration system, installed by Registry and linked to the Registry’s website, used for the purpose to receive applications, carry out procedures, process and store data.
3.6. DNS servers – servers, directing incoming requests regarding domains and ensuring their availability in the domain name system in this way. If this Regulation does not specify the DNS server dependence, this term means the DNS servers are operated by the Registry.
3.7. Domain – any created and existing second level domain in the .lt domain. The created domain is called a domain with a registered name once the procedures for that domain's name check and registration are completed successfully.
3.8. Domain name – the label that identifies the domain. The domain name is composed by the Registrant who is subsequently responsible for it.
3.9. EPP – a protocol, designed to ensure safe interaction between DAS and software used by the Registrars to provide the procedural and related technical services.
3.10. IDN – domain name adapted to the multilingual media, concluded and used in accordance with the special provisions of the internet self-regulatory documents.
3.11. Application – a technically correct command, regarding the performance of a permitted procedure, presented to DAS. Applications are submitted by connecting to DAS via EPP interface (by using specific EPP commands) or via WEB interface (by filling in the required electronic form in the Registry’s website).
3.12. Service agreement – an agreement between the Registrant and Registrar regarding the performance of the procedural and related technical services when creating and managing the domain (-s).
3.13. Registrar – a person accredited by the Registry, providing Registrants with procedural and related technical services. The appointed Registrar is defined as the one specified in records regarding a specific domain in WHOIS database.
3.14. Procedural services – the performance of permitted procedures when submitting the applications to DAS. The procedures are considered as permitted if the Registrar, by the order from the Registrant, may perform (domain creation, renewal, data change and domain deletion procedures) or complete (transfer and domain trade procedures) the procedures in accordance with this Regulation.
3.15. Reserved label – words, phrases or other labels, whose use in domain names is restricted by a normative act or by the Registry’s decision with a purpose to maintain DNS integrity. The reserved labels list is made, changed or supplemented by the Registry. This list is publicly disclosed on the Registry website. By the request of a person the labels are not reserved.
3.16. Technical services – services related to procedural services: the Registrant’s, with whom a service contract has been concluded, account creation and data submission in DAS, the processing of orders for the performing of procedures, briefing and consulting regarding questions on the performance of procedures, warning about the need to perform procedures, creating records in Registrar DNS servers about the served domains.
3.17. Term – a validity term of one year to the rights to the domain, during which Registry services are performed. Starting with the first one, the terms are counted from the domain creation day.
3.18. Registrant – natural person or legal entity, by whose request the domain is created, or by whom the right to a particular registered domain is gained, in the case of domain trade, cession or succession. The Registrant is the domain holder from the domain creation or acquisition of rights to a registered name domain until the domain deletion.
3.19. WHOIS database – systematized, methodically organized collection of data about the domains and persons responsible for them, which can be used individually by electronic means. The WHOIS database belongs to the Registry and is related to DAS.
4. The meanings and content of separate procedures are disclosed in Section IV of this Regulation, for special procedures – in the appendix “Registrars” of this Regulation.
5. The .lt domain management model is “Registry – Registrar – Registrant”. The Registry may be an appointed Registrar, when chosen by the Registrant, or the Registrar and Registrant together, following the creation of their own domain (-s). A Registrar may simultaneously be a Registrant, while creating an own domain (-s).
6. Procedures according to the competence assigned by this Regulation are performed by the Registry, Registrars and accreditation applicants. No other persons can perform any procedures. Registrants have no rights to independently submit applications to DAS, but they independently initiate transfer and domain trade procedures in DAS.

7. Procedures are performed in accordance with these principles:
7.1. The general:
7.1.1. The principle of non-discrimination. All applications are subject to the same rules, regardless of the Registrant’s domain number, nationality, legal form, place of residence or registration and other individual characteristics.
7.1.2. The principle of fairness. The Registry has no personal interest regarding the domain name attribution to one or another person; therefore it is not a party to address the issues regarding the rights or legal interests in the labels used by Registrants in the domain names.
7.1.3. The principle of data accuracy. Registrants must guarantee that their data and information about the domain specified in DAS is constantly correct.
7.1.4. The principle of recompense. For every permitted procedure performed, except for those without cost, fee payment to the Registry must be guaranteed. The fee is paid to the Registry by the Registrars, included into the cost of services performed to the Registrants.
7.2. Related to the domain creation:
7.2.1. The principle of domain name uniqueness. Several domains with the same name cannot exist simultaneously in the .lt domain; from creation to deletion, the domain can only have one name.
7.2.2. “first come, first served” principle. The date and time, when the domain is created, is the only reference point for deciding on priority to use the domain name specified in the application, if it complies with the requirements determined by this Regulation.

8. The domain name can be any unblocked label, complying with these requirements:
8.1. Technical:
8.1.1. It is not used as a name of any other domain created in the .lt domain (including the protected “quarantine” period according to paragraph 88 of this Regulation).
8.1.2. Consists of at least two standard Latin alphabet letters from “a” to “z” (IDN can have other letters), numbers from “0” to “9” as well as the dash (-es).
8.1.3. Consists at most of sixty-three symbols.
8.1.4. Does not have dashes at the beginning and (or) at the end, as well as at the third and fourth positions, unless it is IDN with a special prefix.
8.2. Publicity:
8.2.1. Is composed in such a way that, according to the contextual meaning, it is not flawed from the disclosure approach, is not harmful to the .lt domain prestige and the business reputation of the Registry.

9. Special IDN requirements:
9.1. When creating IDN, these Lithuanian alphabet letters can additionally be used:
Symbol Code (Unicode standard) Symbol Code (Unicode standard)
“ą” U+0105 “š” U+0161
“č” U+010D “ų” U+0173
“ę” U+0119 “ū” U+016B
“ė” U+0117 “ž” U+017E
“į” U+012F 
9.2. The third and fourth positions of the IDN are dashes (when formulating according to the internet self-regulatory institution provisions with the special prefix “xn--”).
9.3. An IDN with the special prefix and domain name with the letters of the Lithuanian alphabet must correspond interchangeably, when converted using IDN compliant software.
9.4. The requirements determined in paragraph 8 of this Regulation apply both to IDN with the special prefix and domain names with the letters of the Lithuanian alphabet.

10. Domain creation – procedure, following which an order is presented to the Registry regarding the processing of Registry services for one (first) term.
11. Basis of procedure – the Registrant’s will, expressed in actions (the submission of the order to the appointed Registrar).

13. The procedure is carried out by the Registrar according to the Registrant’s instructions.
14. Cancellation of the submitted domain creation application is not possible.
15. The Procedure is completed when the WHOIS database shows records on the created domain with the marked state “Checking domain name”.

16.4. The domain name cannot be changed or moved to another top-level domain.
16.5. Until domain name registration, domain records are not available in DNS servers.
17. If the requested domain name has a reserved label according to normative acts, then the procedure involves prior (before submitting the domain creation application) submission the permission for the Registrant to use that label to the Registry or confirmation, that according to the normative act such permission is not necessary for the Registrant.
18. Domain name check – a procedure, designed to ensure that the domain name complies with the requirements. The check procedure is carried out by the Registry.
19. Basis of procedure – the fact of submitting a domain creation application to DAS.

21. The Procedure is completed when the domain status indicated in the WHOIS database changes to “Registered” or the records on the deleted domain in the WHOIS database are eliminated.
22. If the Registry, upon a motivated request from the domain holder or the appointed Registrar, determines that the label in the domain name, due to the imperfectness of the automatic filter was wrongly considered blocked, that label is removed from the blocked labels list, but the availability of the domain creation with that name is pending release for a random time within a 24 hrs period.

23. The procedure does not involve:
23.1. Determination of the purpose for the domain creation.

If the domain holder disagrees with the Registry’s motives, the dispute is stated.

94. Disputes are settled:
94.1. By an ad hoc arbitration, after the disputing parties enter into agreement to transfer the dispute to the arbitration selected by them. In that case, the domain holder and Registry appoint one of their own arbitrators, while they select the third, the chair of settling the dispute.

99. This Regulation was adopted after consulting with the Registrars and summarizing the established practices. The authentic text of the Regulation is disclosed publicly on the Registry’s website in .pdf format, and an informational .html format version is also provided with the comments. The Registry’s comments are not a part of this Regulation; therefore they may be removed, changed or supplemented at any time, depending on the received inquiries. If separate paragraphs of the Regulation are changed or supplemented, the relevant version of the current wording is published, and if the Regulation is changed essentially – the new wording is published.
