AM TLD policy
.am is the Internet country code top-level domain ( ccTLD) for Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
Regulation [ edit ]
The registry for .am is operated by ISOC-AM,
the local chapter of the [1 ] Internet Society.
Any person in the world can register a .am, .com.am, .net.am, .org.am domain for a fee.
Each domain name is subject to review. Generally each review takes 2 or 3 working days.
Armenian law prohibits its
domain names from being used for spam, pornography, or terrorism sites. [2 ] The AM-NIC was moved over to
IPv6 address compatibility in line with the global DNS system.
Unicode compatible names will not be instituted at AM-NIC until all issues related to IPv6 are resolved.
Usage in domain hacks [ edit ]
Domains within the .am ccTLD enjoy popularity due to the connection to
AM radio (similar to the .fm and .tv ccTLDs), and the ability to form English words ending in "am" — e.g. the mobile photo sharing service Instagram uses the Armenian domain name Instagr.am. American music artist and producer Will.I.Am uses the domain for his website. Financial company J. P. Morgan also uses a .am domain to stand for "Assessment Management". Such unconventional usage of TLDs in domain names are called domain hacks.
Second top-level domain [ edit ]
In 2014 a new top-level domain name was registered for Armenia, intended for domain names in the local language. The top-level domain is .հայ. However it has, as of the end of 2014, not become active.
