2nd level domains

To remove the risk of cyber squatting, registration of second-level domains directly below .ua is restricted to owners of registered trade marks, who may register a domain name similar to that of the trade mark in question. However you can register third-level domains beneath some of the following:

  • - paid, commercial organisations, one of the most popular
  • - free, available only to proved educational organisations.
  • - free, available only to governmental organisations
  • - paid, network service providers
  • - paid, domains for individuals
  • - paid, domains for individuals
  • - free, domains for individuals
  • - paid, other organisations (non-commercial), individuals

There are also second-level domains which are region-specific. These are less popular than the above list (making domain names more available) but they are sometimes restricted to organisations exclusively from within the region.
