Activate a .eco domain

After registering a .eco domain, registrants will be invited to create a .eco profile to activate their .eco domain. When creating their .eco profile, to meet meet the minimum activation requirements registrants will:


Take a simple pledge to show their commitment to the purpose and principles of .eco


Affirm their eligibility by sharing their eco actions and commitments

After these requirements have been met, registrants can begin using their .eco domain. These minimum requirements apply to all .eco domain names, including those registered in the Sunrise period.
