NIC México (Network Information Centre Mexico) or NIC.MX is the non-profit organization in charge of the registry for the .mx country code top-level domain (ccTLD).[1] NIC Mexico is also responsible for the National Internet Registry which manages the allocation of IP address space to Mexican internet service providers.

History[edit]

NIC México was created in February 1989 when the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education received the .mx delegation.

In 2001 NIC Mexico established[2] the external Advisory Committee with the aim to discuss relevant and strategic issues regarding the .MX policies.

Registrars[edit]

NIC Mexico finished its Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) implementation in July 2008 and started the accreditation of domain name registrars for the commercialization of .mx domain names. A list of current accredited .mx registrars show more than 180 after one year of operation of this model.[3]

International[edit]

NIC Mexico is a founding member of LACNIC and LACTLD. NIC Mexico is member of the Country Code Names Supporting Organization ccNSO, which is part of the ICANN structure.

Along with eCOM-LAC (Federation of Latin-America and the Caribbean for the Internet and Electronic Commerce), NIC Mexico proposed .lat as a generic top-level domain (gTLD) for Latin American communities, which was approved in 2015.
