The designations above are assumed based on observed practices and standard conventions, as ZAMNET (the ccTLD registry) do not maintain online documentation codifying this. Most entities will generally register either a .co.zm or .org.zm domain, if they choose to use the ccTLD rather than a generic top-level domain.
The one documented exception to the requirement to register at the third level is that "registered ISPs" may register at the second level—e.g., zamnet.zm. However, there are several undocumented variances to this rule—e.g., the Bank of Zambia's domain is boz.zm.
The .com.zm, .edu.zm and .net.zm SLDs are administered by CopperNET Solutions, while all other .zm domains are registered through ZAMNET.
