.it domains can be registered and maintained in real time.
The Registrant must contact the Registrar who then registers the domain, without any paperwork. The system is based on the EPP (Extensible Provisioning Protocol).
The .it Registry manages and updates the archive of domain names (DBNA, database of assigned domain names). The data are freely viewable, within the limits of the privacy of the users.
The Registry also allows you to check the status of registrations of an individual .it domain.
