Registering a GS domain:

After requesting a .gs domain name from most hosts, you will receive an email from the CoCCare Registry about your new domain. The message should contain the following information:

"Dear *Your Name*, You are receiving this email because you are listed as the registrant contact for a new .(domain).gs domain name. As the listed registrant you are the individual ultimately responsible for ensuring compliance with the .gs policy."

The email will also state the fact that you have to keep your contact information current.

The provided email for questions is for the NIC.gs helpdesk.
