Eligibility requirements 
Only qualifying REITs may apply for and register a .reit domain name. Domain names are available only to actual REIT entities and not to REIT sponsors, holding companies, or other affiliated entities.
Nareit serves as the global administrator and operator of the .reit TLD for the benefit of the global REIT community.
Qualifying REITs operating pursuant to governmentally established REIT regimes are eligible.
There is no limit to the number of eligible domain names for which an eligible REIT can apply.
Domains must correspond to a REIT’s legal trade name or name by which it is commonly known, which may include acronyms, registered and common law trademarks, and exchange ticker symbols.

Certain commonly used legal suffix terms or abbreviations that are in the REIT’s legal trade names may be excluded or abbreviated provided that the requested domain name is still sufficiently unique as to clearly identify the domain name to the specific REIT.
Commonly known names by which the REIT is identified must be sufficiently unique as to clearly identify the domain name to the specific REIT.
Names which may be confusing to the public because they correspond too closely to the name of a REIT’s sponsor, holding companies, or other affiliated entities are not eligible.
Domain name registrations and renewals are limited to a one year registration period.
Domain name holders must renew each year subject to reapplying to confirm they continue to meet the qualifications for holding the .reit domain name.
