Become a Registrar

To become a registrar for .Scholarships you must first be accredited by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). [Visit ICANN's accreditation webpage to find out how.] Once you are ICANN accredited, you can start the registration process.

.Scholarships has partnered with Afilias, known for the .info gTLD, to provide registry services. Once we have started accepting applications, you can follow the steps below to represent our domain.

Get Started With Afilias’ Online Registrar Management System

Once Afilias receives notice of your accreditation from ICANN you will be added to the Afilias Online Registrar Management System (ORMS) and your ICANN Primary Contact will receive an email with login instructions. If you have not yet received this email, or would like to open a new Afilias supported TLD application in your account, please contact with your company information. If you already have an ORMS account you can login here:

The Accreditation Process

Once logged into ORMS you will be able to follow a simple step-by-step process for accreditation. Below is an overview of the requirements for accreditation for most TLDs. Some Afilias supported TLDs will require additional steps. Note that nearly all of these steps can be completed online:

Step One — Business and Legal Process

Step Two — Technical Certification

Complete the Operational Test and Evaluation certification process (OT&E). To complete this step, you are required to develop the client application that will interface to the Afilias Shared Registration System. The OT&E environment is available for you to test your client system. View the Registrar Toolkit and FAQs for additional details. Note: if you have already completed OT&E for .INFO, .ORG, .MOBI, or any of the gTLDs that Afilias supports, you do NOT need to complete OT&E testing again.
