.mw is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Malawi. In 2002 the IANA recommended that administration of the ccTLD be transferred to the Malawi Sustainable Development Network Programme from Computer Solutions LTD[1]

Prices for .mw domains are 100 USD for the first two years, followed by 50 USD per year.

Second-level domains[edit]

In addition to registrations directly at the second level, it is also possible to register third-level names beneath these names. For the most part, the descriptions of the types of organizations each domain is for are advisory, and are not actually enforced.

  • co.mw - commercial organisations
  • com.mw - an alternative for commercial organisations
  • coop.mw - cooperative associations
