We can usually process a name application request within 1 hour.

The registry does experience some very busy periods when it can take 2 or 3 hours but this is not the norm. Please do note that it is up to the Registry to approve or reject names. They can also ask for more information about made up words, acronyms and foreign language (not English or French) sounding words and about dual language name applications which can slow down the name application process because we would have to ask you for more information.

If it is critically important that a company is available within a set time frame, a ready-made company may be the more prudent option.
