    Ac

    • Status: Active
    • Registry: Internet Computer Bureau
    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .ac is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Ascension Island. It is administered by NIC.AC, a subsidiary of the Internet Computer Bureau based in the United Kingdom. Registration for this domain is open to anyone. The registry accepts registrations of internationalized domain names. .ac is marketed by some domain-brokers as a domain for the city of Aachen in Germany, using the analogy to the automotive license plate designation ("AC") for the city. Due to its similarity to the .ac (“academic”) second-level domain that exists under some country code top-level domains, some educational institutions also register under the .ac top-level domain: There are five second-level domains:

    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .cc is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Cocos (Keeling) Islands, an Australian territory. It is administered by VeriSign through a subsidiary company eNIC, which promotes it for international registration as "the next .com"; .cc was originally assigned in October 1997 to eNIC Corporation of Seattle WA by the IANA. The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, an unrecognised country by the UN, that officially belongs to the republic of Cyprus, also uses the .cc domain, along with .nc.tr. Also, since April 2012 it has been used to mean Citizen Company, a term coined by Andrew Noble. With the help of SamsDirect Internet, eNIC managed and marketed the top level domain with great success to become the "second largest TLD registry in the United States second only to Verisign" according to Brian Cartmell, founder and CEO of eNIC who testified before the United States Senate in regard to The Governance of the Domain Name System by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers on February 4, 2001. Much of the success of the domain sales came as a direct result of Sams entering into a deal with the largest radio broadcaster in the United States, Clear Channel (CC)

    Nc

    .nc is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for New Caledonia. The second-level domain .nc.us, within the .us country code domain, is for the U.S. state of North Carolina, and .nc.tr, within the .tr country code domain, is for the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus ("TRNC"), but neither has a connection with the .nc ccTLD. Only companies registered in New Caledonia are permitted to register .nc domain names. Many generic terms are prohibited from registration (those linked with crimes); there are also many reserved for particular circumstances. These include "administration", "bible", "blog", "cabinets", "colonisation", "flag", "justice", "mail", "nation", "offense", "outrage", "presses", "registries", "temple", "union", "vote" and hundreds more. The following 2nd level domains are available for third-level domain name registration:

    .il is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) of Israel. It is administered by the Israel Internet Association. The .il top-level domain is one of the earliest registered ccTLDs. When Israel registered it, on 24 October 1985, it was the third registration of any ccTLD, after .us and .uk, which were registered earlier that year. Israel is still in the process of getting an internationalized top-level domain, ישראל.‏‎. There are eight Second Level Domains:

    Gov

    • Status: Active
    • Registry: General Services Administration
    • Domain Type: Generic top-level domain
    The domain name gov is a sponsored top-level domain (sTLD) in the Domain Name System of the Internet. The name is derived from government, indicating its restricted use by government entities in the United States. The gov domain is administered by the General Services Administration (GSA), an independent agency of the United States federal government. The U.S. is the only country that has a government-specific top-level domain in addition to its country-code top-level domain. This is a result of the origins of the Internet as a U.S. federal government-sponsored research network (see ARPANET and National Science Foundation Network). Other countries typically delegate a second-level domain for this purpose, for example: .gc.ca is the second-level domain for the Government of Canada and all subdomains. Some U.S. federal agencies use fed.us rather than gov. The Department of Defense and its subsidiary organizations use the mil sTLD. Some U.S. governmental entities use other domains, such as com domains by the United States Postal Service (which uses both usps.gov and usps.com for the same website, although it only advertises the com address), and the United States Army's recruitment

    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .cx is the country code top-level domain (TLD) for Christmas Island. It is administered by Christmas Island Internet Administration (CIIA), a community-owned non-profit company which also provides Internet service to the island's residents. The TLD was formerly administered by Planet Three Limited, a company with offices in the United Kingdom and Australia, which went bankrupt and ceased operations, voluntarily transferring management to CIIA (called Dot CX Limited at the time). The local (shire) government of Christmas Island endorsed the transfer, but the Commonwealth of Australia (which has international authority over Christmas Island as an external territory) did not immediately approve it. Australia has since published a Memorandum of Understanding which recognizes CIIA as the legitimate manager of .cx. The domain achieved a certain degree of notoriety when it was used for the shock site goatse.cx.

    .pl is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Poland, administered by NASK, the Polish research and development organization. It is one of the founding members of CENTR. The .pl domain was created in 1990, following the mitigation of the COCOM embargo on technological collaboration with post-communist countries. The first subdomain in .pl was .pwr.pl, belonging to the Wrocław University of Technology. NASK is a Sector Member of ITU-T since 2004 and plays an active role in Study Group 17 working on Internationalized Domain Names (IDN). Andrzej Bartosiewicz, Head of the DNS Division at NASK, acts as Rapporteur for Question 16, dedicated to IDN. Several functional and regional domains exist. Most popular are: (There are more than 100 regional SLDs in Poland.) Many registrants prefer to create their own second-level domains, directly under .pl — as of 2012, over 1,500,000 such domains are registered.

    .km is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Comoros. Registration is available directly at second-level or under a number of sub-domains (cost of KMF30000 in most categories). Second-level registrations are subject to restrictions and local presence requirements. Third-level registrations are unrestricted in *.com.km if the name is not already registered elsewhere in .km; various category-specific restrictions apply to each of the other third-level domains. Personal name *.nom.km registrations are limited to island residents and to citizens resident abroad; various categories corresponding to the individual professions each require the applicant hold a license to practise that profession.

    • Status: Active
    • Registry: ZAMNET
    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .zm is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Zambia. Registrants of .zm domains must "have a presence in Zambia". Registrants are required to register domains at the third level under an existing second-level domain (SLD). There are eight second-level domains: The designations above are assumed based on observed practices and standard conventions, as ZAMNET (the ccTLD registry) do not maintain online documentation codifying this. Most entities will generally register either a .co.zm or .org.zm domain, if they choose to use the ccTLD rather than a generic top-level domain. The one documented exception to the requirement to register at the third level is that "registered ISPs" may register at the second level—e.g., zamnet.zm. However, there are several undocumented variances to this rule—e.g., the Bank of Zambia's domain is boz.zm. The .com.zm, .edu.zm and .net.zm SLDs are administered by CopperNET Solutions, while all other .zm domains are registered through ZAMNET.

    Tp

    • Registry: Timor-Leste NIC
    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .tp was the listed Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for East Timor. The letters used refer to Timor Português or Portuguese Timor a legacy from the nation's previous status as a Portuguese colony. The domain .tp was officially launched in December 1997 by connect.ie, an internet service provider based in Dublin, Ireland, in cooperation with the East Timorese authorities in absentia, while East Timor was under Indonesian military control. .tp remains active for the period of transition, although it now no longer complies with the ISO 3166-1 standard for the two-letter codes for the name of countries, the code for East Timor having changed from TP to TL after independence. It retains a number of domains. The last listed change and update for .tp was on April 22, 2008. In 1997, connect.ie initiated and discussed the potential of setting up a "virtual East Timor". They communicated these ideas to the East Timorese leadership and their representatives. The result of this activity was that connect.ie set in motion the processes to acquire the .tp domain (then the only available and therefore appropriate nomenclature for East Timor). After discussions with Jon Postel, IANA,

    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .my is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Malaysia. The Malaysia Network Information Centre (MYNIC) is currently the registry and registrar for the domain, in charge of registration, billing, system administration, and policies and operation of the domain. MYNIC was previously a division of MIMOS Berhad, a research and development government corporation, before it was incorporated on May 24, 2006. Registrations of .my domains are at the third-level under second-level names and, more recently, second-level domains. Therefore, .my domains are usually structured as exemplified below: In the early days, MYNIC accepted second level domain name but this practice was later abandoned in favour of registering only third level domain names as they grew in popularity. As such, MYNIC did not register .my domains names such as: Existing second level domain names remained, for example MIMOS (mimos.my) and Jaring (jaring.my) (a former subsidiary of MIMOS). However in response to the increased demand and global use of second level domain names, public registrations were reopened on 25 March 2008. The .name.my subdomain is specifically reserved for personal domains of

    .ru is the Latin alphabet Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Russian Federation introduced on April 7, 1994. The Russian alphabet internationalized country code is .рф. The control of .ru is assigned to the Coordination Center for TLD RU (CC for TLD RU), the current official registry. On 1 January 2005 the former registry Russian Institute for Public Networks (RIPN) has fully stopped to provide operations for registrations directly under .ru but still carries out registry operations for the third-level domain names under .com.ru, .net.ru, .org.ru & .pp.ru. The company RELCOM also proposes third-level registrations beneath various second-level domains such as .msk.ru (Moscow), while Macomnet Telcom proposes third-level registrations beneath .int.ru simultaneously. RU-CENTER is one of the accredited registrars in .ru and also handles registration services for .su, the top-level domain of the Soviet Union, which was supposedly going to be phased out given the non-existence of the country it represents, but nevertheless has been accepting new registrations along with .ru; the legal status and ownership of .su is being contested by the ICANN (Russian Government), and

As of September 2011, members of the general public can register Qatar Internet domain names (.QA) that are available through accredited registrars. Prior to the making the .QA domain available to the public, QDR held a “sunrise” period for the domains which enabled trademark holders and government entities to register for the Qatar-specific domain names. Currently there are twelve registrars that have been accredited by QDR to offer the domain names. These registrars are Qtel, W3infotech, IP Mirror, Ascio, MarkMonitor, Marcaria.com, EPAG Domainservices, Safenames, CPS-Datensysteme, DomainMonster, Safenames, and InternetX. ictQATAR manages the Qatar Domains Registry and led the process with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) for creation of an Arabic domain name for Qatar.

    • Registry: Tonga Network Information Center
    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .to is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) of the island kingdom of Tonga. The government of Tonga sells domains in its ccTLD to any interested party. Because to is a common English preposition, it became popular to craft memorable URLs called domain hacks that take advantage of this; URL shortening/redirection services (e.g. go.to) are a popular use. Other domain hacks which do not use the to as a preposition include Daniel Bernstein's website cr.yp.to and uploading services like uloz.to (which means "save it" in Czech). The .to ccTLD is administered by the Tonga Network Information Center (Tonic). The city of Toronto, in Ontario, Canada, has TO (pronounced Tee-Oh) as its nickname. Therefore, the .to extension is used by some small businesses located in Toronto, despite Canada's own .ca. As the .to domains are paid for, all normal DNS operations are possible and registered sites are not required to display ads on behalf of the registrar. Some domains are free, like .edu.to, but only to real Tongan educational institutions. At this moment businesses registered in Tonga can also get free domains. People who sell on .to domains can claim a bonus. .to is one of the few

    • Status: Active
    • Registry: DENIC
    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .de is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Federal Republic of Germany. DENIC (the Network Information Centre responsible for .de domains) does not require specific second-level domains, as it is the case with the .uk domain range which require .co.uk domain for example. The name is based on the first two letters of the German name for Germany (Deutschland). Prior to 1989, East Germany had a separate ISO 3166-1 code (dd), and had a never delegated ccTLD, .dd. .de is currently the most popular ccTLD in terms of number of registrations with .uk being the second most popular ccTLD and .nl being third. It is second after .com among all TLDs. The first point of registration for .de domains was at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Dortmund. uni-dortmund.de was among the first registered .de-domains. .de registrations may be directly ordered from DENIC but it is faster and cheaper to do so via a DENIC member (registrar). As of 23 October 2009, DENIC allowed the registration of single- and two-letter domains as well as number-only domains. Registrations of internationalized domain names are also accepted so that all diacritics of German and the eszett,

    .eu is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the European Union (EU). Launched 7 December 2005, the domain is available for organisations in and residents of EU member states. The TLD is administered by EURid, a consortium originally consisting of the national ccTLD registry operators of Belgium, Sweden, and Italy, joined later by the national registry operator of the Czech Republic. Trademark owners were able to submit registrations through a sunrise period, in an effort to prevent cybersquatting. Full registration started on 7 April 2006. The .eu TLD was approved by ICANN on 22 March 2005 and put in the Internet root zone on 2 May 2005. Even though the EU is not a country (it is a sui generis intergovernmental and supranational organisation), there are precedents of issuing top-level domains to other entities—e.g. .nato. See also GeoTLD. .eu.int was the subdomain most used by the European Commission and the European Parliament, based on the .int generic top-level domain (gTLD) for international bodies, until 9 May 2006.

    .nz is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for New Zealand. It is administered by InternetNZ through its subsidiary, NZ Registry Services, with oversight and dispute resolution handled by the Domain Name Commission Ltd. Registrations are processed via authorised registrars. As of March 2011 there were 433,183 registered .nz domains. As with many long-standing domain registries the registry was maintained informally for some time. The first formally recognised administrative organisation was the University of Waikato until the responsibility was delegated to InternetNZ when it was formed in 1995. Prior to the current structure, the registry operator of .nz was Domainz. Historically, Domainz was a subsidiary of InternetNZ which also operated as a registrar and vendor of other add-on services such as DNS. This combination of a natural monopoly (the registry activities) and vertical integration (the registrar and other services) was seen by some as restricting competition so InternetNZ moved to separate the provision of registry services into a separate organisation with strong oversight. The final part of this transition process was the sale of Domainz to Melbourne IT

    .us is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the United States and was established in 1985. Registrants of .us domains must be United States citizens, residents, or organizations, or a foreign entity with a presence in the United States. Most registrants in the country have registered for .com, .net, .org and other gTLDs, instead of .us, which has primarily been used by state and local governments despite any entity having the option of registering a .us domain. The original administrator of .us was Jon Postel of the Information Sciences Institute (ISI) at the University of Southern California (USC). He administered .us under a subcontract that the ISI and USC had from SRI International (which held the .us and the gTLD contract with the United States Department of Defense) and later Network Solutions (which held the .us and the gTLD contract with the National Science Foundation). Registrants could only register third-level domains or higher in a geographic and organizational hierarchy.

    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .fm is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Federated States of Micronesia, a group of islands located in the Pacific Ocean. Except for reserved names like .com.fm, .net.fm, .org.fm and others, any person in the world can register a .fm domain for a fee. Much of the income from which goes to the government and people of the islands. The domain name is popular (and thus economically valuable) for FM radio stations and streaming audio websites (other similar ccTLDs are .am, .tv, .cd, .dj and .mu); a notable example is Last.fm, a social music website. Such unconventional usages of TLDs in domain names are known as domain hacks. The .fm domain extension has also been used by various companies outside of the audio streaming industry or the Federated States of Micronesia. One example, Ping.fm, is a social networking tool allowing users to update various social media services directly from their website. Other examples include Fastmail.fm, an email provider owned by Opera Software, Last.fm, an Internet radio streaming and statistics service, Smart.fm, an online learning tool, Tastebuds.fm, a dating website for music lovers, Turntable.fm, a social media website that allows

    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .hm is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Heard and McDonald Islands, an uninhabited territory of Australia. There has been limited use of this top-level domain, most of it unrelated in any way to the Heard and McDonald Islands. For instance, Orz.hm is a dynamic DNS service. MY.HM, which no longer appears to exist, issued surname domains, in a manner similar to the .name registry. For a time, praise.hm offered a URL shortening service directed at Christians. The use of .hm to mean "home" has been suggested. The Australian government's official website for Heard Island conservation efforts is heardisland.aq, an Antarctic domain and not part of .hm.

    .jp is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Japan. It is administered by the Japan Registry Service. At the establishment of the .jp domain the domain was administered by the JPNIC, as part of their role as an overseeing technical body for the Internet in Japan. However, due to the growing importance and size of the .jp registry, it was decided at the 11th General Meeting of JPNIC in December 2000 to create a new corporation that would manage the .jp domain. Thus, the Japan Registry Service was created, and on June 30, 2003, officially assumed the duties of the .jp registry. .jp registrations are only allowed if the registrant has a physical address in Japan. Registrations are processed via accredited registrars and domain names with Japanese characters (kanji, hiragana or katakana) may be registered at the second level. While any party with a Japanese mailing address can get a second-level domain (example.jp) there are several restricted-use second-level domains, listed below. Domains listed below are reserved for the local governments in Japan: Japan has considered registering an internationalized country code top-level domain, .日本.

    .cm is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Cameroon. The official registrar for .cm domains is Netcom.cm, based in Yaounde, the capital of Cameroon. Netcom.cm Sarl was founded in early 2008 as a partner of ANTIC, the Information Technology Regulator for Cameroon. On October 15, 2008, NETCOM.cm Sarl launched the registry service for .com.cm, .co.cm and .net.cm. The current version of .cm domains went live August 27, 2009. In August 2006, it was reported that the .cm registry had set up a wildcard DNS record, so that all unregistered domains in this top-level domain go to a parking page with paid search links. This was likely intended to take advantage of typographical errors by users attempting to reach .com web sites. Recent auctions of .cm domains have skyrocketed as high as $81,000 for what pitchmen have termed "prime real estate". However, some bloggers have noted that nothing of any real value was actually put up for auction, despite the price war. Namejet.com, the official auction site for the .CM domain registrar Netcom.cm, sold over $500,000 in .cm domain names the first day and over $2 million in the first week.

    • Domain Type: Generic top-level domain
    The domain name "name" is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) in the Domain Name System of the Internet. It is intended for use by individuals for representation of their personal names, nicknames, screen names, pseudonyms, or other types of identification labels. The top-level domain was initially delegated to Global Name Registry in 2001, and become fully operational in January 2002. Verisign began operating it in February 2009. Domains may be registered on the second level (john.name) and the third level (john.doe.name). It is also possible to register an e-mail address of the form john@doe.name. Such an e-mail address may have to be a forwarding account and require another e-mail address as the recipient address, or may be treated as a conventional email address (such as john@doe.com), depending on the registrar. When a domain is registered on the third level (john.doe.name), the second level (doe.name in this case) is shared, and may not be registered by any individual. Other second level domains like johndoe.name remain unaffected. When the name TLD was first launched, only third-level registrations (and forwarded e-mail addresses) were available.

    The domain name edu is a sponsored top-level domain (sTLD) in the Domain Name System of the Internet. Since 2001, new registrants to the domain have been required to be United States-affiliated institutions of higher education, though before then non-U.S.-affiliated—and even non-educational institutions—registered, with some retaining their registrations to the present. The .edu domain was created in January 1985 as one of the seven first generic top-level domains. On April 24, 1985, cmu.edu, berkeley.edu, columbia.edu, purdue.edu, rice.edu, and ucla.edu became the first six registered domain names. Until 2001, Network Solutions served as registrar for the .edu domain under an arrangement with the U.S. Department of Commerce. Domain registration was done at no cost to educational institutions. In 2001, the Commerce Department entered into a five-year agreement with Educause making that organization the registrar for the .edu domain. The agreement with Educause was extended for an additional five-year period in 2006; at that time Educause was authorized to begin charging a yearly administrative fee to registrants.

    .yu was the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) that was assigned to Yugoslavia and was mainly used by the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and its successor Serbia and Montenegro between 1994 and 2010. After Serbia and Montenegro acquired separate .rs and .me domains in 2007, a transition period started, and the .yu domain finally expired on 30 March 2010. .yu is the most heavily used top-level domain ever to be deleted. The .yu ccTLD was assigned originally to the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, during the government project for the development of scientific-technological information (SNTIJ). The official registrants were the University of Maribor and the Jožef Stefan Institute, which were located in Slovenia. After the Yugoslav wars broke out, SFR Yugoslavia dissolved and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was formed, but was under international sanctions at the time. The .yu domain registry had been left in Slovenia, and the domain became a succession matter when the Slovenians refused to relinquish the domain name to the University of Belgrade in Serbia, which had requested they do so.

    • Status: retired
    • Registry: UKERNA
    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .gb is a reserved Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the United Kingdom. Introduced at the same time as the UK's other top-level domain (.uk), it was never widely used. It is no longer possible to register under this domain. The rule in the Domain Name System is that a top-level domain for a country is derived from the corresponding two-letter code in the ISO 3166-1 list. Accordingly the correct code for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is GB, and the .gb top-level domain was therefore delegated. The pre-existing JANET Name Registration Scheme had used "UK" as a country code, so the UK also applied to Jon Postel of IANA for the .uk TLD. This was granted, and all UK domain names are now issued as .uk, rather than .gb. .gb was used for a number of years, mainly by British government organisations and commercial e-mail services using X.400-based e-mail infrastructure. This simplified translating between DNS domains and X.400 addresses, which used "GB" as a country code. With the demise of X.400 e-mail and IANA's general aim of one TLD per country, use of .gb declined; the domain remains in existence, but it is not open to new subdomain

Afrikaans joined English and Dutch as an official language of South Africa in 1925 in a synonym-status with Dutch, and in the South African Constitution of 1961 Dutch was removed as an official language altogether and replaced by Afrikaans. In 1983 Dutch lost its synonym-status with Afrikaans. However, the .sa domain is used by Saudi Arabia and ZAR is the ISO 4217 currency code for the South African Rand.

As of March 2012, it is the fourth most popular top-level domain worldwide (after .com, .de and .net), with over 10 million registrations. The use of .uk rather than .gb (which is the UK's ISO 3166 country code) is due to its pre-existing use in the (now obsolete) JANET Name Registration Scheme. .uk was made available in DNS to simplify the translation to and from these addresses. There were plans for eventual transition to .gb, but this never occurred; the use of .uk is now entrenched, and it is impossible to register a .gb domain. New registrations directly under .uk are generally not permitted. Instead, registrations are made under a selection of second-level domains. .uk uses OpenDNSSEC. As with other ccTLDs in the early days it was originally delegated to an individual by Jon Postel. In time, it passed to Dr Willie Black at the UK Education and Research Networking Association. Originally, domain requests were emailed, manually screened by and then forwarded to the UK Naming Committee before being processed by UKERNA.

The registration services offer to add more if necessary. Note: the capitalization of the last 3 entries is taken from the .ci registration office site. However, the domain names appear in lowercase.

This domain was in limbo for years, as the delegated manager was imprisoned in Texas on charges of alleged connection to Hamas (a State Dept designated terrorist organization), for which he was later convicted in 2005. Some talk of redelegation and relaunching began taking place at the time of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and in 2005 a redelegation to the National Communications and Media Commission of Iraq was approved by ICANN.

    The domain name net is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) used in the Domain Name System of the Internet. The name is derived from network, indicating its originally intended purpose was for organizations involved in networking technologies, such as Internet service providers and other infrastructure companies. However, restrictions were never enforced and the domain is now a general purpose name space. It is still popular with network operators, and is often treated as an alternate to com. net is one of the original top-level domains (the other five being com, edu, gov, mil, and org) despite not being mentioned in RFC 920, having been created in January 1985. As of 2011, it is the third most popular top-level domain, after .com and .de. Verisign, the operator of net after acquiring Network Solutions, held an operations contract that expired on June 30, 2005. ICANN, the organization responsible for domain management, sought proposals from organizations to operate the domain upon expiration of the contract. Verisign regained the contract bid, and secured its control over the net registry for another six years. On June 30, 2011, the contract with Verisign was automatically renewed for

    .su was assigned as the country code top-level domain for the Soviet Union on 19 September 1990. It remains in use today, even though the Soviet Union itself no longer exists, and is administered by the Russian Institute for Public Networks (RIPN, or RosNIIROS in Russian transcription). In 2001, the managers of the domain stated that they will commence accepting new .su registrations, but it is unclear whether this action is compatible with ICANN policies. ICANN has expressed intentions to terminate the .su domain and IANA states that the domain is being phased out, but lobbyists stated in September 2007 that they had started negotiations with ICANN on retaining the domain. In the first quarter of 2008, .su registrations increased by 45%. 80,829 domain names were registered by 9 August 2009. Some organizations that have their roots in the USSR are still using this TLD. In early 2012, the Swiss Security Blog abuse.ch noted that many cybercriminals started to switch from the TLD .ru to .su due to increased enforcement on .ru.

    • Domain Type: Generic top-level domain
    The domain name info is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) in the Domain Name System (DNS) of the Internet. The name is derived from information indicating that the domain is intended for informative Internet resources, although registration requirements do not prescribe any theme orientation. The info TLD was a response to ICANN's highly publicized announcement, in late 2000, of a phased release of seven new generic top-level domains. The event was the first addition of major gTLDs since the Domain Name System was developed in the 1980s. The seven new gTLDs, selected from over 180 proposals, were meant in part to take the pressure off the com domain. The info domain has been the most successful of the seven new domain names, with over 5.2 million domain names in the registry as of April 2008. After the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York switched to the easier to remember mta.info website to lead users to latest information on schedules and route changes on the area's transportation services.

The name is a phonetic spelling of the first syllable of business. The biz TLD was created to relieve some of the demand for domain names in the com top-level domain, and to provide an alternative for businesses whose preferred domain name in com had already been registered by another party. There are no specific legal or geographic qualifications to register a biz domain name, except that it must be for "bona fide business or commercial use". It was created in 2001 along with several other domains as the first batch of new gTLDs approved by ICANN in the expansion of the Domain Name System following the increased interest in Internet commerce in the late 1990s. The TLD is administered by NeuStar and registrations are processed via accredited registrars. In contrast to other newly installed top-level domains, the biz registry did not implement a sunrise period to grant trademark owners first chance at registration, but instead used a procedure whereby they could file intellectual property claims in advance and then challenge any

    The domain name int is a sponsored top-level domain (sTLD) in the Domain Name System of the Internet. Its name is derived from the word intergovernmental, characterizing its use for international intergovernmental organizations and treaty-related purposes. The first use of this generic top-level domain was by NATO, which had previously been assigned the nato TLD. According to current Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) policy (based in RFC 1591), the int sTLD is reserved for international treaty-based organizations, United Nations agencies, and organizations or entities having Observer status at the UN. int is considered to have the strictest application policies of all TLDs, as it implies that the holder is a subject of international law. For this reason, the application procedure requires the applicant to provide evidence that it is indeed treaty-based by providing a United Nations treaty registration number and that it has independent legal status. Hence, the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPS) saw its initial application for a int domain name rejected on the grounds that the convention did not explicitly create an entity subject of international

The registry site states that ".BI Registry has a rather liberal policy about domain names as soon as the domain name is in relation with the business name or one of its marks. The general principle is that a domain must reflect the truth." Registrations are open to anybody worldwide, but are not supposed to be registered or used for misleading purposes, though apparently no pre-screening is done to ensure this. The site also states that "We strongly discourage the use of suffixes of our country for misleading people. We remind that .bi stands for Republic of Burundi and for nothing else." This is apparently intended to discourage the "repurposing" of .bi as has been done with other ccTLDs (such as .tv for "television" and .la for Los Angeles), or the use in "domain hacks" where the TLD becomes part of a word or phrase (as in del.icio.us).

As of 27 September 2012 there were 552,255 registered .no-domains. Domain registrations are limited to organizations with a presence in Norway and registration at the Brønnøysund Register Centre; each organization is limited to 100 domains. In addition, individuals residing in Norway may register in the second-level domain priv.no. Other second-level domains exist for organizations of certain types, such as municipalities and schools.

The 1000th domain was registered in 1995. Norid is the result of several re-organizations within Uninett, in 2003 becoming a separate limited company.

It is intended for the use of cooperatives, wholly owned subsidiaries, and other organizations that exist to promote or support co-operatives. The coop TLD was proposed by the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA) as a response to the announcement by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in late 2000 of a phased release of seven new generic top-level domains in an expansion of the Internet domain name space. The proposal was backed by many cooperatives and similar trade groups around the world, including the International Co-operative Alliance (ICA). The technical infrastructure for the coop TLD was developed by the worker cooperative Poptel in the United Kingdom and became operational on January 30, 2002. The domain's sponsoring organization is DotCooperation LLC (also known as dotCoop), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Cooperative Business Association.

However, only comune.Tuoro-sul-Trasimeno.PG.it is actually registered as the official town hall web site. Furthermore, and even if it is not explicitly listed, it is not possible to privately register a domain such as comune-di-tuoro-sul-trasimeno.it.

Registrants of .ca domains must meet the Canadian Presence Requirements as defined by the registry. Examples of valid entities include: Registrants can register domains at the second level (e.g. example.ca). Third level registrations in one of the geographic third-level domains defined by the registry (e.g. example.ab.ca) were discontinued on October 12, 2010, but existing third-level domain names will continue to be supported. The domain name was originally allocated by Jon Postel, operator of Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), to John Demco of the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 1988. The first .ca domain was registered by the University of Prince Edward Island in January 1988. In 1997, at the Canadian annual Internet conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Canadian Internet community, with a view to liberalize registration procedures and substantially improve turnaround times, decided to undertake reform of the .ca Registry.

Any individual may register for second-level domain names. However, the registry has created a set of predefined second-level domains for certain types of organizations and geographic locations. Registrations for such third-level domains were available before second-level domains became available in 2004, and registrants of third-level domains were given priority for names at the second level.

A local registrar with a local Moroccan company as administrative contact is needed to register an .ma or .co.ma domain name. Further restrictions are imposed on the registering of other second-level domains (such as .net.ma or .gov.ma). In 1993, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) approved a request for delegation of the .ma ccTLD for administrative and technical contact to Ecole Mohammadia d'Ingénieurs. In 1995 the technical management of the .ma domain was taken over by Maroc Telecom is still the (not formal) technical maintainer. On 12 May 2006 IANA redesignated the administrative and technical contact for the domain, and made ANRT the only official registrar for the .ma ccTLD. Within some years the ANRT will request the market to bid on a "Technical maintainer" license which is valid for five years. The new party will get 12 months to implement a provisioning system based on Extensible Provisioning Protocol. It is not expected that before 2013 the provisioning of .ma domains can be made completely automatic. Registration can be done directly at the second level, or at the third level beneath

Many companies, colleges and people still prefer to use a .pt because these are harder to get (the chance of getting a spam link is very low) and simpler to remember.

There are eight official second level domains: There are some other not official second level domains that belong to registrars offering third level domain name registrations. Greece has applied for the top domain .ελ, for usage with web addresses in the Greek alphabet. This was in April 2011 turned down by ICANN because it was too visually similar to .EA in Latin letters, since ICANN worries that people who can't read Greek could be fooled into copy sites with visually similar domain names. Any Latin two-letter combination is or might be used for ISO 3166-1 codes. Therefore two-letter codes visually similar to Latin letters are not allowed, but three-letter codes such as .укр for Ukraine are allowed. As of 2012, the .ea top-level domain is not allocated.

While the name originally was the acronym for the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), the funding organization in the United States that developed one of the precursors of the Internet (ARPANET), it now stands for Address and Routing Parameter Area. arpa also contains the domains for reverse domain name resolution in-addr.arpa and ip6.arpa for IPv4 and IPv6, respectively. The arpa top-level domain was the first domain installed in the Domain Name System (DNS). It was originally intended to be a temporary domain to facilitate the transition of the ARPANET host naming conventions and the host table distribution methods to the Domain Name System. The ARPANET was one of the predecessors to the Internet, established by the United States Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). When the Domain Name System was introduced in 1985, ARPANET host names were initially converted to domain names by adding the arpa domain name label to the end of the existing host name, separated with a full stop (i.e., a period).

Until mid-2006, the price was 50 USD for one-time registration plus 50 USD per year (total of 120 USD including VAT for the first year). For local standards this was a very high price and many Bulgarian sites are now registered under .com (esp -bg.com), .org, or .net domains, as the registration costs are significantly lower (8 to 12 USD per year) and less of a bureaucratic hassle.

In joint action with the J.

The purpose of this domain is to reserve a segment of the DNS name space reserved for the use of museums; a name space whose conventions are defined by the museum community. The museum TLD grants users a quick and intuitive way to verify the authenticity of a museum site. Conversely, since it is a type of formal third-party certification, museums using this name space obtain a way to assure visitors of the site's validity.

Until late 2006 USMIR was housed at the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute (USC-ISI), which was the original administrator of .us prior to NeuStar absorbing that role. In January 2007, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers reportedly dropped the .um domain from the master list of domain names in response to the domain's being unused and USC-ISI's desire to divest itself of responsibility for the domain. In November 2007 at the registry website of www.nic.um a message stated "Registration is CLOSED at this time. We are only accepting Registrar Accounts." Links to a brief description of each of the individual American islands were also given.

    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .ki is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Kiribati. From the early 1990s to the early 2000s the domain was managed on behalf of the Republic of Kiribati by an Australian ISP, Connect.com.au with the Forum Fisheries Agency, based in Honiara, Solomon Islands as original sponsor, then transferred to the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources Development of Kiribati and finally to the Ministry of Communications, Transport, and Tourism Development. In 2002 direct management of the ccTLD was transferred to Telecom Services Kiribati Limited. This initial set up was done by Franck Martin. As of 2007, the registry is being handled by the Telecommunications Authority of Kiribati using a system of multiple registrars similar to that used by gTLDs; however, few sites are actively using .ki domains. Because of the location of Kiribati and limited Internet connection, it is not uncommon for a website in Kiribati, such as a government website, to be very slow or inaccessible, however a lot of .ki sites are hosted outside Kiribati. Domains can be registered directly under .ki, or at the third level beneath com.ki, biz.ki, net.ki, info.ki, org.ki, gov.ki, edu.ki, mob.ki, and

    .ao is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Angola. It is administered by the college of engineering of the University of Agostinho Neto. The registry Web site, as of 2010, has not been modified since December 2001, and consists of a single page in Portuguese. One of the few links on the page is to a document in Microsoft Word format, in English, which gives registration rules for the domain which may not be up-to-date; they state that registration by entities outside Angola is to be done only in the .it.ao subdomain. The search engine Google seems to be the first .it.ao entity using the subdomain ".it.ao". It also says that registrations are only taken at the third level (when a Google search shows some sites exist at second-level .ao names).

    .br is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Brazil. It was administered by the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee (Comitê Gestor da Internet no Brasil) until 2005 when it started being administered by Brazilian Network Information Center (Núcleo de Informação e Coordenação do Ponto br). A local contact is required for any registration. Registrations of domain names with Portuguese characters are also accepted. With the exception of universities, the second-level domain is fixed and selected from a list that defines the category. For example, site.art.br is in the art (music, folklore etc.) category, and site.org.br is in the non-governmental organization category. Institutions of tertiary education were allowed to use the ccSLD .edu.br, although some use .com.br and others (mainly public universities) use .br. There are also some other few exceptions that were allowed to use the second level domain until the end of 2000. As of April 2010, most domain registrations ignore categories and register in the .com.br domain, which has over 90% of all registered domains. The .jus.br (Judiciary), and .b.br (banks) domains have mandatory DNSSEC use. .br is the most common

    • Registry: Norid
    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .bv is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) reserved for the uninhabited Norwegian dependent territory of Bouvet Island. The domain name registry and sponsor is Norid, but .bv is not open for registration. .bv was designated on 21 August 1997 and was placed under the .no registry Norid. Norwegian policy states that .no is sufficient for those institutions connected to Bouvet Island, and therefore the domain is not open to registration. It is Norwegian policy not to commercialize domain resources, so there are no plans to sell .bv. Should the domain later come into use, it will be under the regulation of the Norwegian Post and Telecommunications Authority and follow the same policy as .no. Bouvet Island is an uninhabited volcanic island in the South Atlantic Ocean. It was claimed by Norway in 1927. The domain was allocated on 21 August 1997, at the same time .sj was allocated for Svalbard and Jan Mayen. The allocation occurred because the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) assigns ccTLDs to all entities with a ISO 3166 code, for which Bouvet Island is designated BV. Management of .bv lies with Trondheim-based Norid, which is also the domain name registry for

    .cd is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Democratic Republic of Congo. It was created in 1997 as a replacement for the .zr (Zaire) ccTLD, which was phased out and eventually deleted in 2001. Except for reserved names like .com.cd, .net.cd, .org.cd and others, any person in the world can register a .cd domain for a fee. The ccTLD is popular (and thus economically valuable) owing to it being an abbreviation for compact disc (other similar ccTLDs are .fm, .am, .tv, .dj, .mu, and .me). Such unconventional uses of TLDs in domain names are known as domain hacks.

    .fi is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Finland. It is operated by FICORA, the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority. December 4, 1986 an application to register top level domain for Finland was sent by Finnish Unix Users Group from Tampere. The application was accepted and the administration of .fi TLD was granted to Tampere University of Technology. Later the administration was transferred first to FICIX and later to FICORA. In the past FICORA regulated .fi domains very strictly. Domain names were only admitted to company names or companies that owned trademarks. This policy led to Finnish companies' applying for domains under other top-level domains. The policy was changed on September 1, 2003. .fi was once best known among non-Finnish internet users as the TLD of the Penet remailer (anon.penet.fi), a privately operated server which enabled users to post e-mail and Usenet messages anonymously in the early 1990s. Another popular .fi address in the early 1990s was nic.funet.fi, one of the largest public file servers at the time which made Finland the only country outside of the US who actually sent more data out than in.

It is one of the more popular ccTLDs, ranked 3rd in the quarterly VeriSign Domain Name Industry Brief of May 2011 for the first quarter of 2011, after .de and .uk. It was the first ccTLD ever to be registered. The authority for the .nl domain was handed over to Piet Beertema of the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica in 1986. Since January 31, 1996 .nl domains are registered by the Stichting Internet Domeinregistratie Nederland (SIDN, in English: Foundation for Internet Domain Registration Netherlands), based in Arnhem. SIDN operates as a registry, with around 1900 registrars. Most registrars are ISPs, IT service bureaus and media service bureaus, but several large enterprises with many brand names have also become a registrar, or participant as SIDN calls them, which is a quite uncommon phenomenon in the domain name industry. Registrars have to pay SIDN a fee for each domain since April 1, 1996, until then registration was free. SIDN does not deal directly with Registrants.

These are: However, it is also possible to register directly at the second level. Given the number of English words that end with -at, this presents the possibility for many domain hacks. All second level domain names must be at least three characters long e.g. form.at or bor.at. Domain hacks treating "at" as a word in its own right (such as arrive.at) are also widespread. Registrations of internationalized domain names are accepted. Many Austrian domain names were registered for English phrases that end with "at". As of today, there are practically no such domain names left available on the domain prime market as the result of the domain name speculation. Most of them can be bought on the domain secondary market. Only few domain names got developed. Some known examples of the Austrian domain hacks are:

This was remarkably popular, with some 17,000 registrations coming in on the first day of the promotion. Domain names are registered directly at second level.

The domain name was originally allocated by Jon Postel, operator of IANA to Kevin Robert Elz of Melbourne University in 1986. After an approximately five year process in the 1990s, the Internet industry created a self-regulatory body called .au Domain Administration to operate the domain.

Since this new regime, any registration has to be ordered via a registrar. Oversight of .au is by .au Domain Administration (auDA). It is a not-for-profit organisation whose membership is derived from Internet organisations, industry members and interested individuals.

However, the country split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1993, and the two new countries were soon assigned their own ccTLDs: .cz and .sk respectively. The use of .cs was gradually phased out, and the ccTLD was deleted some time around January 1995. Until the deletion of .yu in 2010, .cs was the most heavily used top-level domain ever to be deleted. Statistics from the RIPE Network Coordination Centre show that even in June 1994, after much of the conversion to .cz and .sk had been done, .cs still had over 2,300 hosts. By comparison, other deleted TLDs (.nato and .zr) may never have reached 10 hosts. In July 2003, CS became the ISO 3166-1 code for Serbia and Montenegro (Srbija i Crna Gora in Serbian), and remained so until 2006, when the country split and the codes for domains .rs and .me were created. However, Serbia and Montenegro did not use .cs as its ccTLD, but continued instead to use the Yugoslavian ccTLD .yu.

    .ws is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Samoa. It is administered by SamoaNIC, for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Samoa. The .ws domain is an abbreviation for "Western Samoa", which was the nation's official name in the 1970s when two-letter country codes were standardized. While there are no geographic restrictions on registration of most second-level .ws domains, .ORG.WS, .GOV.WS, and .EDU.WS registration is restricted. Prior to March 14, 2008, .WS domains were not allowed to be transferred from one domain registrar to another. .ws has been marketed as a domain hack, with the .ws purportedly standing for "World Site" or "Web site", providing a "global" internet presence to registrants. .ws coincidentally supports all internationalized domain names. As it happened, even though the IANA said that the registry was www.website.ws, it was not the original, real, registry. SamoaNIC is.

The registration is sponsored by the General Post and Telecommunication Company. The .ly domain extension, introduced in 1988, is administrated by the registry LYNIC. This domain is mainly for the use of the general public of Libya. The NIC.LY team appoints recognized registrars to offer .ly domain names, and these registrars perform all the domain registration tasks on behalf of the NIC.LY. Libya Telecom & Technology (ltt.ly) is one of the pioneers that offer .ly domain extension to companies and organizations. Sub domains are also allowed for .ly domain name at both the second level and third level beneath various second levels. According to the registration site, "any .LY domain names may be registered, except domains containing obscene and indecent names/phrases, including words of a sexual nature; furthermore domain names may not contain words/phrases or abbreviations insulting religion or politics, or be related to gambling and lottery industry or be contrary to Libyan law or Islamic morality."

Registrations are permitted at the second level or at the third level beneath various generic second level categories. Some qualifications and restrictions apply to third-level registrations depending on which second-level domain they are within. Second-level registrations have had some limitations including requiring registrants to have a connection with Spain, but these restrictions were lifted in a multi-stage process completed by the end of 2005, at which point registrations at the second level of .es were open to anybody worldwide. The .es domain does not have a conventional WHOIS server operating on port 43, but WHOIS queries can be made using a page on ESNIC's website. There also exist a number of second-level domains: Until the liberalization in November 2005, registering in .es was expensive and encumbered compared to other ccTLDs.

Registrants are classified into a number of different groups with different rules about their domain registrations. A requirement of connection to Croatia, such as being a citizen, permanent resident, or registered company, is common to all of the categories except for the .com.hr. Third level domains (example.com.hr) are allowed to be registered for anyone in the world as long as they provide a local contact.

It was one of the first ccTLDs to be marketed to the Internet at large as an alternative to the gTLDs .com, .net, and .org. Playing on the phonetic similarity between nu and new, it was promoted as a "new" TLD in which there was an abundance of good domain names available. There is a company that offers free domains under the sub-domains co.nu and com.nu () The IUSN Foundation (formerly 'Internet Users Society - Niue') administers the TLD in order to provide a number of local services for Niue itself. IUSN funds Internet Niue which provides the island's internet connection; complimentary PCs and internet connectivity for all residents; and in 2003 established free use WiFi hotspots at various locations throughout the country, claiming to be the "first WiFi nation". The .nu domain is particularly popular in Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands and Belgium, as nu is the word for "now" in Swedish, Danish and Dutch - an example of a domain hack. Partially owing to restrictive domain rules for the ccTLD assigned to Sweden, .se, .nu was used for creative marketing of websites such as www.tv.nu. In

The top-level domain was the subject of a dispute in 2000, between islander Tom Christian, who had been delegated with management of the domain by ICANN, and the government of the island, which was resolved by ICANN ruling that the domain be re-delegated to the Island Council. Subdomains under various two-letter .pn domains are offered as free redirections by popnic.com. An official .pn domain costs $100/year from the registry. There are relatively few sites using these domains, but examples include ESPN (es.pn), Appian Corporation (ap.pn) and Groupon (gr.pn), which each use the domain for URL shortening services. The .pn domain is now also being used as part of The Hunger Games movie's viral campaign, as the official country code of the nation of Panem. Currently the sites available are thecapitol.pn,capitolcouture.pn and thecapitoltour.pn, as well as sites for each of the twelve districts from the series, district1.pn – district12.pn, which redirect to Facebook Pages.

Domain hacks for the .si TLD are quite popular, since si is second person singular of the to be verb. As such, many domains have been created that are using such domain hack, one of the most popular being zadovoljna.si ("You are content", female form). Pepsi also has a pep.si TLD to shorten links. Mexican politicians have also been using .si as part of domain hacks, because sí is Spanish for yes and this TLD allows for domain names that basically translate to ", yes!". One example is 2012 presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador's website, amlo.si. According to a research by McAfee done in 2010, the Slovenian TLD is the tenth most secure.

The top-level domain .ee was introduced in 1992 and was operated by EENet until July 2010. The administrator of .ee domain was the academic Endel Lippmaa. There was a limit of one domain name per legal entity, and registrations of additional names to protect trademarks were specifically denied because "The domain name has no trademark status". As domains under .ee were meant to be an institution's identification on the Internet (like the register code in the commercial register), registration of additional domains in the defense of a trademark or a name form is not possible. Valid registrations were free of charge. The new order of registration of .ee TLD became available on 5 July 2010. Estonian Internet Foundation took over .ee ccTLD registry functions from EENet. All existing domains registered before the transition had to be re-registered during a 6 month transition period which ended on 5 January 2011.

    Western Sahara is a disputed territory, and as such it has no country code top-level domain (ccTLD). .eh is reserved for this purpose, and will be assigned if the competing claimants reach an agreement. IANA has no sponsoring organizations assigned to this domain. These letters correspond to "Sáhara Español" (ESH, as Western Sahara was previously called Spanish Sahara) and also match Saguia el-Hamra, one of two provinces in the earlier Spanish Sahara. On August 1, 2007, an international consortium made a bid to the IANA to administer the .eh domain on behalf of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic. Morocco, an occupying power, has made competing claims to the domain. On October 16, 2007, ICANN decided not to delegate .eh at all, with the explanation that: there are currently two applicants for the delegation of the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) .EH (Western Sahara). Both requests meet the technical criteria for managing a top-level domain. In cases like this, IANA has a long-standing policy of requesting that the two contesting applicants work together to find a mutual solution that will serve the needs of the local Internet community in the best possible fashion.

    .xxx (pronounced "dot triple-X" or "dot x x x") is a sponsored top-level domain (sTLD) intended as a voluntary option for pornographic sites on the Internet. The sponsoring organization is the International Foundation for Online Responsibility (IFFOR). The registry is operated by ICM Registry LLC. The ICANN Board voted to approve the sTLD on 18 March 2011. It went into operation on 15 April 2011.

Landrush period lasted from 8 November through 25 November, and General Availability commenced on 6 December 2011. The .xxx name is inspired by the former MPAA and BBFC "X" rating, now commonly applied to pornographic movies as "XXX". A gTLD (generic top-level domain) for sexually explicit material was proposed as one tool for dealing with the conflict between those who wish to provide and access such material through the Internet, and those who wish to prevent access to it, either by children and adolescents, or by employees at their workplaces.

Additionally, registered names are required to be unique within the entire .lb domain (for instance, example.com.lb and example.org.lb cannot both be registered) because the registry wishes to keep the possibility open to drop the requirement of third-level registration and move all names to the second level.

According to McAfee report "Mapping the Mal Web", .is has been evaluated as one of the top 10 most secure TLDs in the world in year 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. No report has come out since then. As of September 2012 there were about 40,000 registered .is domains. Several .is domain hacks exist using the English word is. Some examples are who.is, this.is, she.is, he.is, time.is, myname.is, hellomyname.is. Many persons are a name or word that ends with is, such as will.is and ell.is.

A project is also under development to use it for "Data Journals". However, this TLD has not proven especially popular to date. Other similar ccTLDs are .fm, .am, .tv, .cd, .mu and .me. Such unconventional usage of TLDs in domain names are known as domain hacks.

This limited use began prior to the creation of the .cat TLD because of Catalan reluctance to use domains under the Spanish country code TLD .es. Subsequent rules changes prevent new 2nd level registrations directly under .gi for entities not connected with Gibraltar.

However, recently tsk.tr is registered as a second level domain. The local registry seems to have amended its policy to allow for 2nd level domains, and browsers should update their handling algorithms for this TLD accordingly.

The name is derived from military. It was one of the first top-level domains, created in January 1985. The United States is the only country that has a top-level domain for its military. Other countries often use second-level domains for this purpose, e.g., mod.uk for the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence. Canada uses norad.mil with the United States as they jointly operate the North American Aerospace Defense Command. Although the United States military has its own top-level domain, it still uses com domains for some of its recruitment sites, such as goarmy.com, as well as for the Defense Commissary Agency's public website and most non-appropriated fund instrumentalities such as military MWR organizations and military exchanges. Also, the military uses edu domains for its service academies: the United States Military Academy, United States Coast Guard Academy, United States Naval Academy, and the United States Air Force Academy can all be reached using either an edu or a mil domain.

    .mm is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Burma (officially the Republic of the Union of Myanmar). It was assigned in 1997. Prior to 1989, the ISO 3166 alpha-2 code for Burma was BU, but no .bu ccTLD was ever assigned. A company run by two Australian expatriates in Burma, Eagle Group, set up the first Internet access to Burma in 1997. They contracted with British company called Digiserve based in High Wycombe, United Kingdom, to provide DNS services for .mm. All .mm DNS queries were handled by Digiserve's two name servers acting as root name servers for .mm, ns1.digiserve.com and ns2.digiserve.com respectively. In 1999, Eagle Group's service was shut down by the Burmese government. Afterwards, these two servers then delegated the SOA authority of .com.mm, .net.mm, .edu.mm and org.mm TLDs to the two name servers managed by Myanmar Posts and Telecommuncations, ns0.mpt.net.mm and ns1.mpt.net.mm, both servers were located in Yangon. In February 2002, the DigiServe DNS servers were hacked by pro-democracy activists, which resulted in the traffic to all .mm domain names including www.gov.mm being redirected to a website demanding the release of famous student leader

    .th is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Thailand. It is administered by T.H.NIC Co., Ltd. (THNIC), the corporate entity of Thai Network Information Center Foundation. Registration of a .co.th domain name is a complicated procedure, for this reason most Thailand websites prefer to use a .com name. In order to register a .co.th domain name the registrar in Thailand requires copies of company documents in the same name as the required domain name, so for example if you required acme.co.th you would need to have a registered company called Acme Co., Ltd. A company can only register a single .co.th domain, making it impossible to facilitate easy location of a company's products by using a variety of words or product names as their domain names. THNIC admits .th registration only third-level domain under seven groups of predefined second-level domains: In 2010 a new top domain was registered and introduced for Thailand, intended for domain names in the local language. This top domain is .ไทย. As of 2011, thousands of sites with this domain are active. It appears that the second level domains are assigned directly to the site owners.

The term is used in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. In addition to its original intended use as a country code, and the secondary meaning as a type of company in German-speaking countries, the .ag domain has been marketed for use for agriculture-related sites, and for sites referencing the atomic symbol for silver, Ag for example www.antiques.ag www.antiques.ag A English Antique Silver website. It also has a potential use for other domain hacks for English words that end in -ag. The Heritage Foundation uses .ag for URL shortening (herit.ag).

    The domain name org is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) of the Domain Name System (DNS) used in the Internet. The name is truncated from organization. It was one of the original domains established in 1985 and operated by the Public Interest Registry since 2003. The domain extension was originally created for non-profits, but today it is commonly used by schools, open-source projects, communities, and for-profit entities. The number of registered .org domains have increased from less than one million in the 1990s, to ten million as of June, 2012. The org domain was one of the original top-level domains, with com, edu, gov, mil and net, established in January 1985. It was originally intended for non-profit organizations or organizations of a non-commercial character that did not meet the requirements for other gTLDs. The MITRE Corporation was the first group to register an org domain with mitre.org in July 1985. The org TLD has been operated since January 1, 2003 by Public Interest Registry, who assumed the task from VeriSign Global Registry Services, a division of VeriSign.

    .sj is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) reserved for the designation Svalbard and Jan Mayen. The domain name registry is Norid, but .sj is not open for registration. The issuing of the domain was based on the ISO 3166 designation of Svalbard and Jan Mayen, which consists of two separately administrated integrated territories of Norway: the Arctic archipelago Svalbard and the nearly uninhabited volcanic island Jan Mayen. .sj was designated on 21 August 1997, at the same time as Bouvet Island was allocated .bv. Both were placed under the .no registry Norid, which is also the sponsor. Norwegian policy states that .no is sufficient for those institutions connected to both Svalbard and Jan Mayen, and therefore the domain is not open to registration. It is Norwegian policy not to commercialize domain resources, so there are no plans to sell .sj. Should the domain later come into use, it will be under regulation of the Norwegian Post and Telecommunications Authority and follow the same policy as .no. Svalbard and Jan Mayen are two independent integrated territories of Norway. The Svalbard Treaty grants Norway full sovereignty of Svalbard, but the archipelago holds

In November, 2007 .bb was again relegated to the Telecoms Unit within the Government of Barbados. The Government has indicated that the government's policy will be to maintain a semi-restricted domain. Legal issues regarding domains are to be handled by the Corporate Affairs and Intellectual Property Office (CAIPO) arm of the Government. The fee for Barbados' main ccTLD and all of the second and third-level domains is BD$120 annually.

The domain is becoming popular with companies who produce instant messaging (IM) software with names registered by Adium, ejabberd, Coccinella, Meebo, Pandion, Pidgin, Prosody, Trillian, and Yahoo! among others. .IM is also used in German, French and Italian speaking countries (i.e. Germany, Austria, Luxemburg, Switzerland, France, Italy and part of Belgium) for Real Estate purposes (Immobilien in German, Immobilier in French, Immobiliare in Italian). .IM also sounds like the phrase "I'm" (short for "I am") in English. The abundance of available short names is also making the domain popular for personal use. Currently, domain registrations cost £40.00 per year for domains of three letters or more, although they can be purchased much more cheaply

    .kp is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (commonly known as North Korea). It was created on September 24, 2007. As of 2012 there remain relatively few websites in the .kp domain. As internet access within North Korea is very limited, .kp websites are mostly those targeting a foreign audience. A few of the websites in this domain are: Previously, the .kp domain was managed by KCC Europe. A large number of .kp websites were also hosted by KCC Europe in Germany. However, as of 2012, management of the .kp domain has been transferred to the Pyongyang-based Star Joint Venture. Most .kp websites (such as all of those listed above) are also now hosted within North Korea. North Korea has no private Internet service providers. According to former national leader Kim Jong-Il, "I'm an Internet expert too. It's all right to wire the industrial zone only, but there are many problems if other regions of the North are wired." Access is rare and limited; Reporters Without Borders once described the nation as "the world’s worst Internet black hole" as "Internet officially does not exist in the world’s most isolated country, but a handful

    Kz

    • Status: Active
    • Registry: KazNIC
    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .kz and .қаз are the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Kazakhstan. Registrations can be made directly at the second level (with no requirement of Kazakhstan presence) or at the third level beneath categories which have specific restrictions, and are generally limited to Kazakhstan-related entities. A minor incident was caused when the right to use the domain name www.borat.kz, the website of Sacha Baron Cohen's Kazakh character, Borat, was suspended. The domain-issuing body said that they took this action since false names were given for the site's administrators, and also because the site www.borat.kz was hosted outside Kazakhstan. However, the underlying cause of the action was in order to censor the content of the site: "We've done this so he can't badmouth Kazakhstan under the .kz domain name," Nurlan Isin, President of the Association of Kazakh IT Companies, told Reuters. "He can go and do whatever he wants at other domains." In June 2011, Google redirected all traffic from google.kz to google.com in response to a demand issued by the Kazakh Ministry of Communications and Information that requires all .kz domain names to operate on physical servers within the

    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .li is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Liechtenstein. The .li TLD was created in 1993. The domain is sponsored and administered by the Hochschule Liechtenstein (University of Applied Sciences of Liechtenstein) in Vaduz, but domain names with the extension can also be registered with SWITCH, administrator of Switzerland's .ch ccTLD. There are no requirements to apply for the extension. Registrations of internationalized domain names have been accepted since March 2004. .li is one of the few country code domains that are palindromes of other country code domains, in this case .il, for Israel. Many Long Island, New York (USA), organizations and companies have adopted the .li TLD as a domain hack. In addition to Switzerland being geographically adjacent to Liechtenstein, “.li” on the end of a noun in Swiss German is commonly used as a diminutive. This is widespread, notable with Muesli (the diminutive of Mus, or “puree”), and even shows up in family names, such as the well-known chocolate manufacturer Sprüngli. Due to this vernacular usage, many Swiss companies register an additional, or alternative, .li domain for their businesses and services. In Russian, -li

    Ls

    • Status: Active
    • Registry: Leo LTD
    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .ls is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Lesotho. It is not possible to register a new second-level domain in .ls. New registrations are only taken at the third level, below one of the existing second level domains. Second-level domains that have active registrations are listed below. There are two private second-level domains that exist for historical reasons, .quadrant.ls and .nul.ls. The latter is used by the National University of Lesotho. The .ls domain was established and first delegated on 13 January 1993, with the National University of Lesotho as the sponsoring authority. Initially, Rhodes University acted as the registry and hosted the primary name server, a situation that continued until September 2012. In April 2012, the sponsoring authority changed from the National University of Lesotho to the Lesotho Communications Authority, the national communications regulator, in line with the newly-promulgated Communications Act (No. 4 of 2012). In line with this, the registry operator will change from Rhodes University to the Lesotho IXP. The process of implementing this change is ongoing.

    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .lv is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Latvia. Registration is permitted at the second level, and this is the form of registration currently encouraged by the registry; however, registrations are also accepted at the third level beneath a number of subdomains: Registration is open to foreigners, though the dispute policy says that precedence is generally given to domestic users. There does not appear to be much non-Latvian use of this TLD; exceptions include a few sites apparently using it to suggest Las Vegas—much as .la is used for Los Angeles—or “love”—as in “my.lv,” “we.lv,” or “true.lv”—but these types of usage are not widespread. The gambling site Bovada, formerly known as Bodog, moved to an .lv domain after the United States Department of Homeland Security confiscated its former domain, bodog.com, in 2012. Internationalized domain names may also be registered (see details).

    • Domain Type: Generic top-level domain
    The domain name pro is a generic top-level domain in the Domain Name System of the Internet. Its name is derived from professional, indicating its intended use by certified professionals. In October 2000 Jason Drummond came up with the concept for a new top level domain name (TLD) and established RegistryPro to jointly bid with Register.com for .pro. In May 2002 RegistryPro (www.registrypro.com) signed its contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) the organisation that administers global domain names; under which it will operate the registry for the new top level domain (TLD) .pro. The domain was originally launched in June 2004 with registrations restricted to lawyers, accountants, physicians and engineers in France, Canada, Germany, UK and the US. In March 2005, the registrar EnCirca introduced its controversial ProForwarding service which enabled unverified individuals and businesses to register pro domains. Registrants then had thirty days to provide verified credentials prior to their domain being activated. Total registrations reached 6,899 by January 2008. Following consultation with ICANN, the domain was relaunched in September 2008 with

    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .se is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Sweden (Sverige). The top domain is operated by .SE (The Internet Infrastructure Foundation), but domains must be registered through one of the approved registrars. .SE is a foundation and is managed on the basis of its charter of foundation and its statutes. The Foundation is managed by a Board of Directors, whose decisions are executed by the executive management. Prior to April 2003, the rules governing domains under the .se top domain were highly restrictive. Only companies, associations and authorities registered nation-wide were allowed to register a domain, and it had to be very similar to the registered name. Individual products were not eligible for separate domain names, even if they were registered trademarks (several companies formed daughter companies named after products to circumvent this rule and protect the trademark). Individuals could register one (and only one) domain with the suffix .pp.se (pp is an abbreviation for ("private person"), and companies and organizations registered in just a single county were eligible for domains with a .se suffix. Non-profit organisation names are

    So

    • Status: Suspended due to lack of recognized government
    • Domain Type: Country code top-level domain
    .so is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Somalia. After a long absence, the .so domain was officially relaunched on November 1, 2010 by .SO Registry, which is regulated by the nation's Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications. Due to the civil war in Somalia, operations of this domain were previously officially delegated to Monolith Innovation Group, a company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which is now defunct. The domain remained delegated to this company, even though it was defunct, until April 17, 2009, at which time the .so domain record was changed in the root zone to point to the servers of the new registry operator, the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications in Somalia. Monolith Innovations, as a domain name server, was popular in the mid-1990s. Second-level domain registrations at the time were (by modern standards) relatively expensive. Monolith operated various projects which allowed small sites to obtain an Internet address of the form example.ml.org at effectively no cost instead of paying full price ($50US in the first year) for a domain like example.com, example.org or example.net The domain name record for .so was initially created on 28 August
