.eg is the Latin alphabet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Egypt. Any entity who wants to register a domain name ending with
.eg must have a local representative or the domain name has to be hosted on Egyptian DNS servers. Egypt's Arabic alphabet ccTLD is
.مصر. During the 2011 Egyptian protests, domain .eg was shut down by the government.
There are eleven second-level domains. Registrations are possible at the second level (directly under .eg) or at the third level beneath these names.
Examples of domain names registered at the second level: nic.eg, bibalex.eg, coke.eg, vodafone.eg, nile.eg.
