Based on a policy update at the registry, we will no longer be charging for the .NL Trustee functionality as of October 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 CEST. The official registry of .NL - SIDN - has made modifications towards their policies, that went into effect on October 2nd, 2009.

"Registrants outside the Netherlands are to be allowed to use SIDN's registered office address as a domicile address"

As of October 2nd, 2009, 12:00 CEST, the following changes will go into effect:

  1. The .NL Domain Policies (/legal/service-agreements) will be extended by the new .NL Trustee Terms and Conditions as outlined by SIDN.
