The .il top-level domain is one of the earliest registered ccTLDs. When Israel registered it, on 24 October 1985, it was the third registration of any ccTLD, after .us and .uk, which were registered earlier that year.

As of 10 June 2014 there are 227,066 domain names registered unter the .il ccTLD in Israel.

Israel is still in the process of getting an internationalized top-level domain, .ישראל‎.

  • .ac.il: Academic Institutions; administration delegated to the Inter-University Computation Center.
