The setup of .nr was done in 2002 by Franck Martin using specific custom code.
The original configuration of the .nr TLD domain was performed by Shaun Moran of ComTech Communications (Australia) in 1998 as part of the first Internet connectivity on the Island. There was a lengthy process with IANA to get the .nr domain approved and assigned at the time.
These are the official second-level domains under which third-level registrations are offered by the registry:
- edu.nr (restricted)
- gov.nr (restricted)
- biz.nr (unrestricted)
- info.nr (unrestricted)
- net.nr (unrestricted)
- org.nr (unrestricted)
- com.nr (unrestricted)
Note: "co.nr" is not an official hierarchy; it is a domain (www.co.nr) owned by a company offering free subdomain redirection services. As of May 5, 2016, issues with the .nr registry caused the entire .co.nr domain to cease functioning. This proved to be a temporary situation and the facility was reinstated on June 30, 2016.
