.ps is the Internet country code top-level domain ccTLD officially assigned to the State of Palestine.[1] It is administered by the Palestinian National Internet Naming Authority.[2]

Registrations are processed by certified registrars.

The Internationalized country code top-level domain for the State of Palestine is .فلسطين, which is represented as .xn--ygbi2ammx in Punycode.[2]

On 06 February, 2013 the ISO 3166-1 code for the State of Palestine changed to reflect the PS used for the ccTLD.

Second level domains[edit]

Registrations can be made at the second-level as well as at seven third-level domain names:[3]

  • .ps: Any Palestinian Commercial or Personal Entity.
  • com.ps: Commercial Entities.
  • net.ps: ISP's and Network Companies.
  • org.ps: NGO's and Nonprofit organizations.
  • edu.ps: Educational Institutions.
  • gov.ps: institutions of the PNA and Government.
  • plo.ps: institutions of the PLO.
  • sec.ps: for security organizations of Palestine.

Domain hacks[edit]

It has also been used in domain hacks, for example meetu.ps for meetups on the website Meetup, and by the University of Maryland as ter.ps.[4]
