DENIC ENUM Domain Guidelines and Data Protection Information

Please note: The English translation of the DENIC ENUM Domain Guidelines is provided for the convenience of our non-German-speaking customers. Regardless of this, only the original German-language version is legally binding.


(1) DENIC eG (hereinafter: DENIC) administers and operates ENUM Internet domains under the domain in the capacity of registry. It does so without any profit motivation, for the benefit of everyone with an interest in the Internet.

(2) Particulars of DENIC: DENIC eG, Theodor-Stern-Kai 1, 60596 Frankfurt am Main, Germany; e-mail:; entered into the public register of cooperatives at the local court (Amtsgericht) of Frankfurt am Main under the number 770, value added tax identification number DE 189976656; members of the Executive Board: Thomas Keller, Martin Küchenthal, Andreas Musielak, Sebastian Röthler.


Applications for domains can only be submitted through DENIC members. They will only be processed if the domain applied for is in conformity with the conditions contained in point V and if all the particulars required according to point VI have been supplied completely and correctly.


DENIC will register the domain, provided it has not already been registered for someone else, provided the necessary technical conditions have been set up for the its connectivity and provided the DENIC member concerned is convinced that the (future) Domain Holder is indeed the legitimate holder of the telephone number corresponding to the domain.


When registration is successfully completed by DENIC, the Domain Contract comes into being between the (future) Domain Holder and DENIC. The Domain Contract is subject to DENIC's ENUM Terms and Conditions. The latest amended version of these is available any time at


Apart from component, a domain is comprised solely of numerals (0 to 9), which are ordered one at a time and are separated from each other by single dots. The domain must correspond to a telephone number whose legitimate holder is the (future) Domain Holder, in such a way that its digits that come before the component contain the digits of the telephone number in reverse order, including the area dialling code or other network access code, but without the leading zero. The only domains permitted are those that correspond to geographic telephone numbers, mobile wireless numbers in the (0)15, (0)16 and (0)17 ranges, national numbers ((0)32), national free-phone numbers ((0)800), personal numbers ((0)700) or service numbers (018).


It is the Domain Holder who is DENIC's contractual partner and thus the holder of the material rights to the domain. It is possible for a domain to be held jointly by more than one holder. Unless the Domain Holder or at least one of the Joint Holders is a natural person, the full name of the legal person (organisation) must be given (including the indication of its legal form). In addition, the full postal address and the e-mail address of the Domain Holder or, in the event of Joint Holders, the full postal addresses and the e-mail addresses of all the Joint Holders must be communicated; a post-office box number does not constitute a full postal address.
