About .versicherung

.versicherung is a community Top-Level-Domain (TLD) exclusively designed for members of the German speaking insurance industry. The TLD .versicherung is an established, especially secure and trustworthy namespace. Furthermore it supports consumer protection because only approved insurance brokers are allowed to use a .versicherung domain.


The .versicherung is a small gTLD characterised by a high degree of stability and attractive margins, compared to other and bigger TLDs. In order to achieve and maintain this high level of quality, every registrant will be checked for eligibility when making a first domain registration and subsequently re-evaluated yearly.

Who can register .versicherung domains?

The .versicherung TLD is a so-called "community based" top level domain. Domain names may only be registered under the gTLD .versicherung by a limited group of registrants and are subject to special conditions as is their use.

Eligible registrants to register a second-level name in .versicherung TLD are based in the countries of Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein and Switzerland and are in detail:

  • Governments
  • Governmental organizations regulating the insurance industry
  • Organizations and individuals (sole proprietors) that are recognized and registered members
    of the insurance industry community:
    • Primary insurers, reinsurers and social insurers with an authorization within the legal
      frameworks for the insurance industry in the respective countries.
    • Insurance agents and insurance intermediaries with an authorization within the legal
      framework for the insurance industry in the respective countries
    • At an official public register registered associations, educational institutions and service
      providers of the insurance industry

On request of the registry, a .versicherung domain name registrant has to proof its relationship to the insurance industry as defined in the .versicherung registration policy. The validation or re-validation of a registrant will happen in the following cases:

  • New registration of a .versicherung domain name
  • Changes of the owner data (e.g. owner change) of a domain name
  • At least once a year even if nothing has changed in the owner data
