There are a few reasons why a domain name might appear as unavailable:
- It might have been registered by someone else.
- If the domain is unregistered, .art might have reserved this domain to be released at a later date.
- ICANN prohibits the release of certain domain names for sale. This includes some common words that are barred for technical or policy reasons.
Even with these select restrictions, there are several millions of word and number combinations available for registration at .art
If you wish to register a name that appears as ‘unavailable,’ please contact your registrar for additional information. Alternatively, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see what can be done.
