.sc is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Seychelles. The TLD was marketed to businesses in Scotland and South Carolina, however, the domains are subject to Seychelles registry rules. While SCregistrars, a company who marketed .sc domains to a target audience of Scottish sites, has since closed down[1] the .sc extension remains available through the Afilias Global platform via various well-known registrars internationally for direct registration at second-level.

Third-level domains[edit]

  • com.sc: commercial, for-profit organizations
  • net.sc: network infrastructure machines and organizations
  • edu.sc: educational institutions
  • gov.sc: governmental institutions
  • org.sc: miscellaneous, usually non-profit, organizations
