Worldwide leader in providing Local Presence Service

At EuropeID we work to remove those barriers in order to grant our clients access to restricted domains. EuropeID is indeed the global leader in offering Local Presence Service for domain registrations – a service which is sometimes referred to as Local Proxy Service or Local Agent Service. Whether through our locally registered branch office or through a credible local agent, we can provide you with that important country domain name which will not be available for registration with other registrars.

When performing business activities locally, be that in Finland, Thailand, Croatia, Malaysia or somewhere else, that all important local domain may be the key to success. It instates local trust in your website, and it gives you a virtually priceless local boost with the search engines, steering traffic to your website.

Below you will find a complete list of the countries where EuropeID provide Local Presence Service for domain registration.

What is Local Presence Service?

In numerous countries local presence is a prerequisite for a domain registration. It is often required that the administrative contact needs to be based in the country where the domain is applied for.

The requirements and registration process may differ in each country. In order to make your registration experience as pain-free as it is possible, EuropeID offer you the Local Presence service, also called local proxy or local agent service. It is an agreement, accepted and observed by registry authorities, by which you authorize us to be your local domain contact.

A domain registrant’s local address is required in countries such as Norway, Finland, Canada, Albania and many others. Below there is the complete list of countries requiring local presence which are supported by EuropeID.

User Certificate

EuropeID will provide a signed User Certificate to clients using our Local Presence service. This will secure your rights to the domain names you own.

How to register domain names within a restricted country?

Simply select a domain extension from the list, read the applicable regulations and check if the domain name of your choice is available using our search form. The next step will take you to where you will be able to opt for our Local Presence service. Or we can easily assist you if you contact us via e-mail at .

Terms of Local Presence Service

At all time, the maintaining registrar of a proxy domain name must be EuropeID. We will continue to renew the domain name provided that applicable annual fees are paid on time. Prepaid annual fees will not be refunded.

If a proxy domain name is used for communication in violation of, but not limited to, local laws, EuropeID will delete or render the domain name inactive instantaneously. If a domain name is used for the purpose of communicating content of an unethical or immoral nature, the domain name will be suspended until the content is altered to terms satisfaction.

EuropeID or its authorised agent is supplying the proxy service in good faith, but cannot guarantee against unanticipated interruptions or discontinuance of Service. In the event that we receive instructions from a Registry, court of law or similar institution to either amend the legal structure of a domain name or cancel it completely, we will do so at once, and cannot in any way or form be held accountable for the occurred.

EuropeID is entitled to, at its sole discretion, and without notifying the Client, revise address data or transfer ownership of proxy service domain names between its local presence representatives.

You concur that, to the best of your knowledge, the domain name does not in any way or form infringe upon a third-party’s trademark or other rights, or violate any direct or indirect laws or procedures in the pertinent countries and beyond. If however, at any point in time a domain name is considered by EuropeID to be in such violation, we are entitled to respond independently to protect ourselves, and may without limitation implement measures such as rendering a domain inactive, transferring it to a new holder or deleting the domain name.

It is explicitly not permitted to use our proxy service in order to purchase and sell domain names. Should any domain name be found to be “on sale”, it will instantly be rendered inactive or deleted. A generic type domain may be exempted, in which case such exception must be expressly agreed upon in a written form prior to the ordering of the domain name.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold EuropeID harmless from and against any loss, costs or damages, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, brought about by any claim, action, suit, proceeding, dispute or demand arising out of or associated with any proxy domain name registration, proxy domain transfer or usage of a proxy domain name.

In case a complaint is filed against EuropeID or its agent, either directly or through a local court or dispute resolution procedure, or similar course of action, we have no obligation to defend the domain registration or participate in such procedure. EuropeID may choose to instruct our client to within a 7-day period provide us with evidence of a legitimate right to the domain, or otherwise reach a written agreement with us as to how to act in response to the complaint.

In case of loss of a domain name or in case of loss of a Service for a period of time, EuropeID or our agent cannot be held accountable for any losses sustained by our client, directly or indirectly, even if EuropeID has been informed of the possibility of such loss or damages. Even though we appoint local agents after careful consideration, when a local agent is used rather than our local office, we cannot in any way or form be held accountable for actions taken by the agent now or in the future.

All countries listed below have implemented restrictions, preventing international companies from registering domain names. In countries such as Norway and Australia it is possible for only local companies to register domains.
