Trustee service is a service offered by Gandi which allows you to register domains in regionally restricted TLDs.
While most TLDs are open to anyone without restriction, some TLDs have restrictions in place on who can register a domain using that TLD. There are many domains which require some kind of regional presence to register a domain. Some of these domains restrictions allow for you to purchase a trustee service which helps you meet the requirements for a domain even though you do not have a direct presence in that country or region. You will see a “trustee” label for these domains in your account.
Trustee service is especially useful for companies who wish to purchase their brand name in as mand TLDs as possible to preserve their brand identity.
Gandi offers two forms of trustee service:
- Auto Trustee: This is a free service which is automatically added when you purchase a domain with Gandi.
- Corporate Trustee: This service is currently only offered for customers who use our corporate services.
We have plans to expand these services in the future.
