.je is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Jersey. It is administered by Island Networks (Registrar) Ltd.

History[edit]

Alderney hosts the domain name registry for both bailiwicks of the Channel Islands. The country-code top-level domains (ccTLDs) of .je and .gg first appeared on the Internet in 1996 after Jon Postel agreed with Nigel Roberts of Island Networks to add four codes (GG and JE, and IM and AC) to the IANA list of TLDs. The codes for the Channel Islands and for the Isle of Man were entered on to the official United Nations ISO-3166 list in 2006.

Second-level domains[edit]

Since 2000, names have been registered principally directly under the country code.

However the following legacy sub-domain are still open for registration

  • .co.je - commercial/personal domains
  • .net.je - Internet service providers and commercial
  • .org.je - organisations (free to local good causes)
