No, for any domain that ends with .mt, requirements and regulations, BMIT Technologies cannot facilitate the procurement of any domain that ends with .mt. These domains need to be bought from NIC Malta website.
Once the domain is procured you can host your domain and website by purchasing the DNS hosting plan and Web Hosting Standard plan accordingly.
Can I host my domain at BMIT Technologies while registered elsewhere?
Yes, you may register your domain with another provider whilst still be able to host it on our cloud platform.
How can I transfer my Domain?
You can transfer your domain by accessing your current registrar and obtain or unlock the Authorization code / EPP Code.
With some registrars you will need to open a support ticket with one of their agents to obtain the transfer code.
Once you have the Auth / EPP code you may proceed with the steps shown in the Purchasing Services section.
This may take up to 7 days for the domain to be transferred, during which your domain will remain active but will no longer be manageable until transfer is completed.
