Why can't I buy a .tv domain from you? It's available but not from you.

Hello Karenegan,

Our apologies that the .TV top-level-domain is not available for registration through InMotion's services. The supported top-level-domain names can be found listed in this tutorial on registering domains. We are a reseller for TLDs, but we are not an actual domain registrar. We provide the service for our clients to make it easier to purchase domains. However, since we are not a domain registrar ourselves, there are many domain types that we unfortunately can not register. This does NOT mean that you can't register it through another service! You can always use another domain registrar and then use the domain name with InMotion's Hosting service. If you do register your .TV domain elsewhere and want to use the domain here with InMotion, then you will simply need to change the name servers after your domain registration is complete.

I hope this helps to explain the issue and answer your questions! Please let us know if you have any further questions or comments.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.
