A Country-Code Top-Level Domain provides a fantastic opportunity to present a nation's online power and presence on a global digital stage. It is the natural focal point for citizens and businesses to engage in the development of a national online infrastructure and digital economy.
Some of the ccTLDs CentralNic works with:
CentralNic Registry is proud to work with an enviable group of forward-thinking countries, which are developing and promoting their own 'national brand', both regionally and internationally.
For over a decade, CentralNic’s in-house ccTLD experts have worked collaboratively with governments and ccTLD managers to create long-term, viable business strategies, that actively promote and grow their ccTLDs.
CentralNic’s experts attend and contribute to regional forums, discussions and technical events. CentralNic is always informed of all developments in the ccTLD arena and represents the interests of its registry customers to provide the best advice on all ccTLD developments.
CentralNic has undertaken Benchmarking and Feasibility Studies to assist ccTLD clients for revisions to regulations and develop new policies to globalisation programs or simply work with ccTLD operators to revise their regulations to international best practice standards.

CentralNic Registry has proudly provided 100% DNS service uptime to all of its registry customers. Whether the need is for a dedicated in-country solution, a fully outsourced or a hybrid mix, CentralNic has the right infrastructure needed to power your ccTLD.
CentralNic distinguishes itself from its competition by embracing openness and transparency in its relationships with Registry Partners. The "standard" service package alone provides a level of access that goes above and beyond anything offered by any other backend provider.
CentralNic’s registry platform is among the world’s largest shared registry platforms, capable of supporting hundreds of top-level domains and tens of millions of second-level domains, while still maintaining high-performance, stability and resilience.
CentralNic offers bespoke solutions to fit the unique regulatory and policy requirements of countries. CentralNic Services includes a unique 'hybrid solution' which combines the benefits of both the shared and dedicated in-country solutions, by hosting some critical registry service elements on infrastructure in-country, while keeping the SRS on CentralNic’s shared platform. In addition CentralNic offers bespoke services to complement existing infrastructure or using CentralNic's SRS but maintaining many administrative functions with the ccTLD Manager.
The same software powering CentralNic’s shared platform can be used to provide a seamless transition to a dedicated platform hosted in-country, as it can be installed and run on any Unix or Unix-like operating system. CentralNic has experience of performing registry transitions of exactly this kind.
