How much does it cost to register a .aero domain name?

The cost varies according to the registrar chosen. The minimum domain name registration period is for two years and registration fees are not refundable once your name has been submitted by your chosen registrar to the central registry. However, the registrar policies may differ. Please review the pricing and registration conditions on your registrar's web site before you confirm your registration request.

Can I pay through an invoice?

All registrars are able to provide you with invoices instead of credit cards. If you do not wish to pay through a credit card, simply request your registrar to send you an invoice. Should a registrar refuse your request, please contact us at:

aero.enquiries@sita.aero.

Due to Internet regulations regarding name registration, names cannot be registered directly through SITA, but need to be registered through one of the registrars listed on our web site, which you may find by going to the Registration icon, then "Registrars" or simply click here.
