Consultation on rules for private individuals under .no (Norway)

Norid (operator of the .no ccTLD) has initiated a public hearing on whether private individuals should be able to register domain names directly within .no in addition to registrations within the category domain. Everyone is invited to give their opinion on this issue. The hearing is open for input until 11 March.

The issue is whether individuals should continue to register domain names in the second-level category domain only, or also be allowed to register directly within .no.

– There are different opinions about this issue, and we hope that many people will participate in the discussion and give their input to the proposal, Hilde M. Thunem, Managing Director of UNINETT Norid AS, says.

The consultation paper and information on how to submit your answer are available from (in Norwegian only). The hearing closes on 11 March 2014.
