This study aims to analyze the extent of the legal protection accorded to national Internet domain names (JO.) within Jordanian legislations, in light of the absence of a specialized legislative framework that deals with the concept of these domains, and it’s substantive and formal terms of registration. The study revolves around two problems, First: the Jordanian Electronic Transactions Law is devoid of any legal regulation of these domains. Second: the National Domain Name Registration Policy (jo.) concentrates on the technical aspects, without specifying domain’s concept and the rights of registrants. The study concludes the need of issuing a specialized bylaw which deals with domain’s tenor and terms, in accordance with the “Deployment of Information Technology Resources in Government Institutions Act”, it also recommend the referral of all domain disputes to the rules for Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy(UDRP).
