.KP Going Back Online After Few Months Offline

.KP domain names, North Korea’s country code, could be back online after being offline for some months reports PC World.

A number of .KP domain names became unavailable in the third quarter of 2010 according to the report with the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) pointing the ccTLD to new servers in a first step toward bringing it back online.

“The new servers do not yet appear to be online, but IANA’s records now point to North Korean Internet addresses. The servers carry the “kptc.kp” name, which is probably a reference to Korea Posts and Telecommunications Corp., the country’s official telecommunications carrier.”
