Complicated step of acquiring ID number from registry has been removed.
Domain name registry Donuts acquired the .travel top level domain name earlier this year. Now, as expected, it has made it easier to register second level .travel domains.
Registrants will no longer need to acquire a Unique Identifying Number from the .travel registry before registering the domain name. They will just need to check a “self-certification” box at their registrar to certify that they are a member of the travel community.
Moniker is one of the first registrars to implement this change. Here’s how it looks when you register a .travel domain at Moniker:
EnCirca and Name.com, the two largest registrars for .travel, have not yet implemented this change.
