What precautions and security measures should be taken in domain creation and management?

Before the creation of the second-level domain, it is important to make sure there are no violations of the other persons’ rights to a domain name. After checking the availability of the domain name, it should also be verified in the registers of legal entities and trademarks to make sure the registration of the domain name does not violate the rights of other persons. The registers are available here:


A domain name has to be constructed making sure its contextual meaning would not violate the public order or be defective in terms of publicity, would not undermine the prestige of the .lt domain and the business reputation of the registry.

If a domain name has specific Lithuanian letters ą, č, ę, ė, į, š, ų, ū, ž, you should register both options – IDN domain, for example, gražus-vardas.lt, and the incorrect one using only Latin letters, for example, grazus-vardas.lt. If you have both domain name options and direct traffic to one of them, you can protect yourself against the attempts of your competitors to mislead the visitors by directing them to the domain name with a very similar spelling.

The domain’s validity term always has to be renewed on time because after the “quarantine”, the domain is in free circulation and can be lost if it is not renewed on time.

The login data (user name and password) and other identifiers should never be given to the third parties. More information on why it is important not to disclose your login name, password and other data to the third parties is available here: https://domains.lt/en/faq/for-domain-registrants/why-is-it-important-not-to-disclose-your-login-name-password-and-other-data-to-the-third-parties/

If you need help with technical actions, it is better to give the access rights to your account to the third parties. Information on how to do that is available here: https://domains.lt/en/faq/for-domain-registrants/how-to-grant-the-login-rights-to-the-account-for-the-domains-technical-management-to-the-third-parties/

You should always use the latest version of the operating system and software on your computer or another mobile device you use to log onto your account. The latest versions of internet browsers are the most secure ones.

To make sure your domain has a good technical reputation, you have to manage the security on your website. The National Cyber Security Centre at the Ministry of National Defence of the Republic of Lithuania has prepared recommendations for the implementation of cybersecurity measures on websites and their servers. The website holders should use these recommendations to increase the resistance of the systems to cyber threats. The recommendations are available here:
