Untitled[edit]

I see Puerto Rico has a top-level domain, does anybody know about the other US territories, do they have second-level domains under ".us"?Rt66lt 15:19, 7 April 2006 (UTC) I found my own answer. I think it should be added to this page, and I'll do it.Rt66lt 15:22, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

US Virgin Islands has a top level domain (.vi) as well as a 2nd level domain under .us, which is not listed on this page... Tafinucane 21:14, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Since the official release of .us as a second-level domain, Is that just a typo or what does it mean? Second-level domain to which top-level domain? .us.com?

*o.us[edit]

Should there be some mention of the recent del.icio.us/script.aculo.us style domains? Ibroadfo 14:08, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

There's an article domain hacks about this sort of thing, also the list of domain hacks lists quite a few (like "call.us" as a Texas law firm). Using .as or .us as the corresponding dictionary words is almost too easy. --66.102.80.239 05:29, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Fourth-level domain name registration [?][edit]

Any clue on how one may register a domain name that is locality-based?

eg, www.puentehillsmall.cityofindustry.ca.us (?)

None of the major domain registrars seems to have a clue about this.

Pine 23:32, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

That was delegated to a number of different local registrars/registries... but I don't know what happened to them after second-level registrations were opened up. *Dan T.* 00:05, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

My understanding is that locality-based domain name registration is largely discontinued. At one time, the procedure was to contact the delegated domain manager for your locality, usually a local business, etc. There is an old list of locality domains and the domain managers here: http://www.neustar.us/register/delegated_subdomains.txt. But I think when the second-level registrations were opened up, support for locality-based domains was largely dropped. JasonLong 17:48, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

As of February 2014, Neustar states that "Most existing locality-based domain names are managed by Delegated Managers. These existing registrations will continue to operate as normal. Name registrations for names that are not currently managed by a Delegated Manager will be handled by Neustar directly." So you should be able to obtain new locality/state-based registration through Neustar.

zipcodes.us[edit]

Apparently the zipcode.us project, which creates domains like 90210.us for California, is based largely on individual city articles scraped from en.wikipedia, and presented along with ads from various .us domains. As postal codes and telephone numbers are reserved, this project is presumably part of the Neustar .us registry itself, but I don't think there's much (if any) info on it in Wikipedia yet. I'd added a one-line mention of it to this page. Is it notable, or just more new.net spam? --66.102.80.239 05:18, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

as.us, pr.us[edit]

All two character combinations are reserved, who is to say that these are for American Samoa and Puerto Rico? It could also be said that dq.us stands for Jarvis Island. --Henry W. Schmitt (talk) 02:21, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

A search engine finds plenty of site:.vi.us listings (mostly k12 sites) but nothing for .as.us or .pr.us - not sure why. Legally, one would expect the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico to each have same or similar status?
According to [1], "III. Domain Delegations for Undelegated Domains: In keeping with the goal of centralizing the technical function of the usTLD, all of the currently undelegated names in the identified usTLD structure will, in the interim, be delegated1 to NeuStar. Specifically, NeuStar will be the delegated manager for the following domains to the extent that they were not delegated prior to NeuStar’s acceptance of the administrator role:2
  • .us
  • <state>.us
  • <locality> .<state>.us
  • lib.<state>.us
  • k12. <state>.us
  • pvt. k12. <state>.us
  • cc. <state>.us
  1. A “delegation” results in the entire authority and responsibility over a given name being assigned to another party. Delegations are implemented via NS (or nameserver) records.
  2. Labels indicated by “<name>” are labels that may have any number of entries. For example, <state> indicates any of the two-letter postal codes for the states of the United States and its possessions and territories." --66.102.80.212 (talk) 15:24, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
