.lk is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Sri Lanka. Foreign companies who do not have a local presence can only reserve their top-level and corresponding open second-level domains (either through the LK Domain Registry or agents). In order to register and use a name they must have a contact address in Sri Lanka (which may be obtained through an agent or law firm).

Second-level domains

Registrations are taken at the second level and also at the third level beneath various categorized second level names. A second-level registration automatically blocks the name from registration by anybody else under any of the third-level names.

These second-level names are available for registrations within them:

Restricted registration:

  • .gov.lk: Governmental Departments of Sri Lanka (Automatically reserves name at second level and under all other second level names)
  • .ac.lk; Research and Higher Education Institutions in Sri Lanka
  • .sch.lk: Registered Schools in Sri Lanka
  • .net.lk: Licensed Internet Service Providers in Sri Lanka
  • .int.lk: International Treaty Organizations

Open registration:

  • .com.lk: Commercial entities
  • .org.lk: Noncommercial Organizations
  • .edu.lk: Educational sites
  • .ngo.lk: Non-governmental Organizations
  • .soc.lk: Registered Societies
  • .web.lk: Web Sites
  • .ltd.lk: Limited Liability Companies
  • .assn.lk: Associations
  • .grp.lk: Groups of Companies
  • .hotel.lk: Hotels

Internationalized top-level domains

In September 2010 two new top-level domains were registered for Sri Lanka. They became active during 2011.
