.SO Domain (Somalia)

72.00 USD / year
Please enter your desired domain name:
Although it is the official domain of Somalia, .so is increasingly being used by new technology startups, who find in this extension a large number of free domains for very interesting and generic keywords, both in English and in other languages.

Created in 1997, it was not until 2010 that they were launched to the general public by the .SO Registry, under the Somali Ministry of Telecommunications.

In 2015, the requirements for the registration of these domains were tightened, as the holder was obliged to have a relationship with Somalia, which led to a reduction in both the number of registered domains and authorized registrars.

Currently the extension has no local presence requirements and can be registered by individuals and companies from any country.
