.ml is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Mali.

In April 2013 the Agence des Technologies de l’Information et de la Communication (AGETIC) announced that it would give away .ml domains for free, hoping to improve the usage and the knowledge of the IT industry in Mali. It is the first African nation to start giving away domains for free.[1][2][3]

.ml is available for free worldwide in a partnership with Freenom (previously known as Freedom Registry).[4]

Second-level domains

Registrations are at the third level beneath these names:

  • Internet providers
  • Associations (must show registration); international organizations permitted, but must be registered with the local administration
  • Local schools
  • Governmental organisations
  • Local press
