.ky is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Cayman Islands. Registration is limited to residents and registered companies in the Cayman Islands, and a local address and phone number is required for the registrant and administrative contact. The Cayman Islands also has the international three letter code, CYM, and has won a bid to be awarded the .cym domain name[1] in a future expansion of the top level domain space.[2]

Second level domains[edit]

Registrations are permitted directly at the second level, or at the third level beneath these names:

  • com.ky
  • org.ky
  • net.ky
  • edu.ky (restricted to educational institutions)
  • gov.ky (restricted to governmental entities)
