US citizen Attempting to buy (.de) domain extension — Tax ID, Address required — Any solutions?

  • # January 10, 2013 at 7:04 am

    Good morning,

    I am a US citizen attempting to purchase a (.de) domain extension from Stable Host. During the final stages of checkout, I am required to provide both Tax ID and Address. Considering I’m not a German resident and have neither of the required data, what is the best solution for completing the transaction?

    Anyone ever have a similar issue before?

    If anyone experiences a similar issue…I solved this rather easily.

    Simply enter n/a in the required fields.

    Some cc domains actually require a local contact – in which case, there are often companies that you can hire to represent you in the country.

    AFAIK, Germany *does require* a local contact – did entering “n/a” actually work, or did it just allow you to submit the form?

    It appears to have worked. I’ve been able to add the domain to my hosting server. Under my list of active domains, however, the domain in question is (pending).
