Direct domain registrations

ISNIC is the registry operator for the country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) .is (Iceland).

Since ISNIC allows direct registrations, you may choose either to register your .is-domain directly here on our website, or through one of ISNIC's Providers or Agents.

ISNIC is responsible for the safe and fair operation of the .is domain, and maintains a high technical reliability of all .is-domains. On this website ISNIC provides a web based registration system for administering .is-domains. To support .is domains, ISNIC provides a network of high quality name servers distributed around the world. ISNIC's service has a reputation of fairness and 100% Domain-Name-Server (DNS)uptime for almost 25 years. The domain hi.is (University of Iceland) is one of the oldest domains in the world, registered December 11th 1986.

On our website you will find information relevant to the registration and administration of .is-domains. We also explain fundamental procedures, like choosing provider (ISP), transferring domain to a new registrant (holder) and automatic domain renewal.
