Wikipedia has a list of top-level domains but few of their entries specify availability or restrictions, such as having to be a citizen or have a business presence, etc.

So, what are some top-level domains with no to little restrictions with regards to who may register? These are domains particularly useful in domain hacks.


Wikipedia lists them all in the Country Code top-level domain article, with domains allowing foreign registration marked with an asterisk.

  • Somehow I missed that. The problem is it seems inaccurate. .is (Iceland) allows foreign registration, yet is not marked with an asterisk.

    It's Wikipedia. Edit the article. Add the asterisk.

In the list of ccTLDs in the Wikipedia article you mentioned, each ccTLD has its own Wikipedia page. In the infobox (on the right) for each country’s page, there is a row titled Registration restrictions that may be useful to you.

Alternatively, you could check links to country specific registration policies that are mentioned in this listing
