.ai is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Anguilla. It is administered by the government of Anguilla.

Second and third level registrations[edit]

Registrations within off.ai, com.ai, net.ai, and org.ai are available unrestrictedly, worldwide. From September 15, 2009, second level registrations within .ai are available to everyone worldwide.

Domains are $100 for each two-year period. As of Dec 2017, the ".ai" registry supports Extensible Provisioning Protocol. Many registrars now sell ".ai" domains. Since then, the .ai ccTLD has also been popular with Artificial Intelligence companies and organizations.

Records on the TLD[edit]

The .ai TLD is notable for having an MX record, allowing mail to be delivered directly to "recipient@ai"[1][2]
