The domain name moe is a top-level domain (TLD) in the Domain Name System of the Internet. Its name comes from the Japanese slang word moe, indicating its intended purpose in the marketing of products or services deemed moe.[1]


Interlink began developing the moe top-level domain (TLD) in 2012. On November 13, 2013, ICANN and Interlink entered into a registry agreement under which Interlink operates the moe TLD.[2] Interlink sponsored a contest held between April 11 and May 6, 2014 to design the domain's logo.[3][4] The general registration period began on July 22, 2014.[1]
