  • Category 2: Foreign trade mark; a representative in Thailand must be provided.
  • Category 3: Identical name with name under a second-level TLD: .CO.TH, .AC.TH, .OR.TH, etc; except for registered domain names under .IN.TH, which will not be included.

Every approved second-level “.TH” name will acquire a privilege to secure the equivalent “.ไทย”(dot Thai).
