.sg is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Singapore. It is administered by the Singapore Network Information Centre. Registrations are processed via accredited registrars.

In 2011, two new internationalized country code top-level domains were registered for Singapore, intended for domain names in the local languages. These domains will get domain names and working sites during 2011. These domains are .新加坡 (encoded as .xn--yfro4i67o) and .சிங்கப்பூர் (encoded as .xn--clchc0ea0b2g2a9gcd). The time plan is (or was) to begin accepting applications from existing domain owners in July 2011 and to activate them in September 2011.
