.KY Now Available To All

Cayman Islands KY logoDomain names for the Cayman Islands ccTLD, .ky, are now available to anyone anywhere… for a fee.

The ccTLD previously only offered domains to local businesses and residents for free, but now a deal with Uniregistry sees domains being made available to all, including those in the Cayman Islands, for US$39.98 each.

“We’re not necessarily anticipating a huge influx of domain registrations from outside the Cayman Islands come 2September but we have been contacted by a number of registrars who want to market and sell the domain for us,” ICTA Managing Director Alee Fa’amoe told The Cayman Reporter.

Pre-existing registrants that had not responded to the changes prior to 2 September and paid the annual registration fee have had their domains automatically made available for registration.
