.il is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) of Israel. It is administered by the Israel Internet Association, which hosts the DNS Root Server and manages the Israel Internet Exchange (IIX), that supports IPv4 & IPv6.
The .il top-level domain is one of the earliest registered ccTLDs. When Israel registered it, on 24 October 1985, it was the third registration of any ccTLD, after .us and .uk, which were registered earlier that year.
