.ar is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Argentina. It is administered by NIC Argentina. Registering a .AR domain directly is not allowed, only the 8 second-level domains below are open to everyone, although a local presence in Argentina is required.
Second level domains
As of January 2017 there are currently 9 second-level domains.
In November 2008, a resolution approved the use of special characters in domain names, including ñ, ç, á, é, í ó, ú, ä, ë, ï, ö, and ü. The .gob.ar domain was also approved for government entities (.gob stands for "gobierno", government in Spanish).
