Registry of .it

The .it Registry (hereafter Registry) is responsible for the management of Internet domain names with the suffix .it (the country code Top Level Domain associated with Italy as certified by ISO 3166). It maintains the database of all registered domain names and manages the primary .it nameserver. The Registry operates within the Institute of Informatics and Telematics of the CNR and since December 1987, with the establishment of cnr.it (the first domain of the Italian network), the Institute has managed all activities regarding registration and maintenance of .it domain names as originally delegated by IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, now ICANN: Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), which is the body responsible for the assignment of international IP addresses and the operative management of the DNS.
