.ne is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Niger.

Unrelated to the .ne top-level domain, "ne" is sometimes used as a second-level domain within other country-code domains, in which registrants may register second-level domains of the form .ne.xx, where xx is the ccTLD. Two examples are Japan (.ne.jp) and South Korea (.ne.kr). Some other ccTLDs use "net" instead.

Currently as of January 2014, it is not possible to register a .ne domain: Intnet.ne's website returns a PHP configuration page, AfriDNS has advised that the domain is dysfunctional,[1] and it is marked as having unavailable registrations by commercial registrars.[2][3]
