.nf is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Norfolk Island. While there is no rule requiring a local presence to register domains in this TLD, the pricing is significantly higher than most other domains, which has discouraged its use. Although registrations at the second level are the most expensive, they are still more common than third-level registrations, and most names in use are for sites relating to Norfolk Island.

Second-level domains

These second-level domains are available for third-level registrations, with no restriction on who can register them. .com.nf and .net.nf parallel the .com and .net TLDs, while some of the others appear to be based on proposed new TLDs from the late 1990s which were never implemented (other than the eventual use of .info).

  • .com.nf
  • .net.nf
  • .arts.nf
  • .store.nf
  • .web.nf
  • Norfolk Island Data Services has also reserved:

  • .firm.nf
  • .info.nf
  • .other.nf
  • .per.nf
  • .rec.nf
  • Common Misconception

    Commonly, people misinterpret the "Second-level domain" co.nf as the real commercial second-level domain for the island. The domain is actually ran by a web-hosting provider called biz.nf.
