1 Registration requirements

Anyone can register .tw, .idv.tw, and .com.tw domains on a first-come, first-served basis.

Note: GoDaddy no longer offers new registrations of .org.tw domains.

2 Renewal restrictions

Your .tw domain name renews before its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether the domain name is auto-renewed or renewed manually. Auto-renewal is attempted 40 days prior to the domain name's expiration. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal 10 days later. If the second attempt fails, we try one more time on the expiration date.

If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by its expiration date, it must be redeemed. There might be a fee for the redemption. See Renew my expired domain for instructions on the redemption.

For example: Your .tw domain name expires on October 1. If your domain name does not renew automatically, you can renew it manually by October 1. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on August 21, September 1, and October 1.

.org.tw renewals require additional documentation. Please contact support for assistance.

3 Transfers-Away requirements

.tw domains can only be transferred between NeuStar-accredited registrars, please confirm with your gaining registrar.

.org.tw transfers require additional documentation. Please contact support for assistance.
