About .se Domain Names
The .se country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD) is an extension that represents Sweden. For companies that conduct business in Sweden and individuals who want to reach the growing number of Internet users there, these domain names are a good investment. Registering these domain names gives you regional recognition and an easy-to-manage Web presence.
Anyone can register them on a first-come, first-served basis.
Your .se domain name can have up to 63 characters, with a minimum of two characters, and it can contain letters (a to z), numbers (0 to 9), and hyphens (except at the beginning or end).
You can use special characters in your .se domain name, including å, ä, é, ö, and ü. You can also use Finnish, Meänkieli (Tornedalsfinska), Sami, Romany, and Yiddish characters, as well as other Nordic language characters. Click here for a complete list.

The Internet Infrastructure Foundation is the registry for .se domain names.
You can register a .se domain name for one to 10 years.
Your .se domain name renews before its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether set the domain name to auto-renew or manually renew. We attempt auto-renewal on the first day of the month prior to the domain name's expiration date.
If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal on the 10th of the month and again on the 20th of the month. If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 20th of the month prior to the expiration date, you can attempt to recover it, and there might be a fee to do so. See Verlopen domeinnamen herstellen for more information.
For example, if your .se domain name expires Oct. 10, we attempt auto-renewal Sept. 1, Sept. 10, and Sept. 20. If we cannot auto-renew the domain name, you must manually renew it by Sept. 20.
You can renew your .se domain name for only one year at a time.
Yes. However, if your .se domain name contains special characters, you cannot transfer it to us at this time. See Mijn domein overdragen aan GoDaddy for more information.
Due to registry limitations, we cannot add a free year of registration to .se domain names that you transfer to us.
NOTE: For most domain name extensions, transfers take five to seven days from the time you authorize them. However, a .se transfer goes through immediately when you enter the Authorization Code and click Finish.
