.gl is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) in the Domain Name System of the Internet for Greenland. The domain is available for Internet services world-wide and registrations are handled by ICANN accredited domain name registrars.
In April 2013, the registrar unilaterally voluntarily suspended resolution of thepiratebay.gl, intended to be a new primary Domain Name for famous Bittorrent search engine The Pirate Bay. This caused transient inconvenience to some File Sharing internet users.
