The .am country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD) is an extension that represents Armenia.
Domain names can contain up to 63 characters, with a minimum of three characters, and can contain letters (a to z), numbers (0 to 9), and single hyphens (except at the beginning or end of the domain name). You cannot register domain names with special characters such as & and #.

1 Renewal restrictions
Your .am domain name renews before its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether you set the domain name to auto-renew or renew manually. We attempt auto-renewal on the first day of the month prior to the domain name's expiration date. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal on the 10th of the month and again on the 20th of the month.
For example: Your .am domain name expires on October 10. If your domain name does not renew automatically, you can renew it manually by September 20. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on September 1, September 10, and September 20.
If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 20th of the month prior to the expiration date, you can attempt to recover it, and there might be a fee to do so. See Recovering Expired Domain Names for more information.
2 Account change restrictions
When you move the domain name, the registrant's first name, last name, and organization (company name) cannot change.
3 Contact updates restrictions
AMNic charges a fee to update the registrant's name or organization. A change of registrant is called a trade. To update the following registrant contact fields for your .am domain name, contact our support team:
- First name
- Last name
- Organization (company name)
In the Domain Manager, you can update all other contact information. See Change domain contact information for more information.
