Who can register .kr domains?
Anyone can register a .KR domain name but local businesses must enter a local Korean business registration (certificate) number. Non-local individuals and businesses must leverage a free trustee service to bypass eligibility requirements.
We'll attempt to auto-renew your .kr domain on its expiration date. We'll park .kr domain names after the first failed billing attempt. If the domain isn't renewed within 30 days following expiration, we cancel it and remove it from your account.
For details on refunds, please visit GoDaddy's Refund Policy page. Most domains will follow the Standard Terms, but certain domains will have exceptions or may not be refundable at all. Look under BOTH of the following categories:
- Products with Special Refund Terms (look under Domain Name Registrations/Renewals)
- Products Not Eligible for Refunds
One nameserver is required for .kr domains to resolve, and a maximum of 13 nameservers is allowed. IPv6 is supported.
