NIC Mexico Announces the Re-Opening of .MX Registrations

by Chad Kettner in Categories: ccTLDs

Network Information Center (NIC) Mexico announced they are planning to re-open top-level .mx registrations after 20 years of restrictions.

Since February 1, 1989, the registration of first level .mx domains has been extremely limited. At first it was only to be used by educational institutions, but in 1996 that too was taken away with the .edu.mx extension.

Throughout its 20 years of history, NIC Mexico has always tried to help local usersĀ  promote their ideas, business, and culture through a variety of extensions including .com.mx, .gob.mx, .edu.mx, .org.mx, and .net.mx. However, it believes it is necessary to take the next step by opening direct .mx registrations and promoting the development of the Internet in Mexico on a larger scale.

The re-opening will tak place in phases, giving first priority to current holders of .mx domains under the various classifications. The process will be articulated in February and launched in May, so stay tuned!
