|TLD type||Country code top-level domain|
|Registry||Offshore Information Services|
|Sponsor||Government of Anguilla|
|Intended use||Entities connected with Anguilla|
|Actual use||Used for some sites based in Anguilla; although second and third-level registrations are available worldwide there hasn't been much use of them|
|Structure||Registrations possible at third level, beneath several second-level labels, are available to anybody; second-level registrations are now available to anybody as well (as of 26 June 2006).|
Second and third level registrations
Registrations within off.ai, com.ai, net.ai, and org.ai are available unrestrictedly, worldwide, but don't appear to be getting much use. From September 15, 2009, second level registrations within .ai are available to everyone worldwide.
There is a $100 USD fee to become a registered user at whois.ai. Domains are $100 for each 2 year period. The order process is mainly manual and requires fax, and address verification, and a waiting period of 3 months after payment to "make sure there is no problem with your credit card". However, the waiting period can be reduced by 1 month per successful verification of each fax, SMS, and address thus effectively removing the waiting period.
Usage Outside of Anguilla
With the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), certain companies are beginning to purchase .ai domains to represent an artificial intelligence application. One example of this is the Tempo AI "Smart Calendar", whose primary domain is tempo.ai. The most popular news website in the world, Mail Online uses .ai in its social media links, as in dailym.ai
