.pl is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Poland, administered by NASK, the Polish research and development organization. It is one of the founding members of CENTR.


The .pl domain was created in 1990, following the mitigation of the COCOM embargo on technological collaboration with post-communist countries. The first subdomain in .pl was .pwr.pl, belonging to the Wrocław University of Technology.

In 2008 the number of registered .pl domain names exceeded one million, whereas at the end of 2013 the registry comprised more than 2.4 million domain names.[1]

Each domain must be registered in the National Domain Name Registry.

Second-level domains[edit]

Several functional and regional domains exist. Most popular are:

Functional domains[edit]

Regional domains[edit]

(There are more than 100 regional SLDs in Poland.)

Many registrants prefer to create their own second-level domains, directly under .pl—as of 2012, over 1,500,000 such domains are registered.[2]
