.my Second Level Domain Name (2LD) Now Available

A .my third level domain name (3LD) is the common domain name extension that you see (eg. .com.my, .net.my, .org.my, etc). It is quite seldom that you find a website with a .my second level domain name (2LD) of .my. Two examples that I can find is Jaring.my and UKM.my.

Jaring.my was registered in the year 1992 while UKM.my in the year 1996. I guess they must have stopped selling the 2LD after that but it seems like the domain name is back on sale again.

There will be a priority period starting 1st November 2007 at 9am until 31st December 2007 at 5pm. During this period, all existing 3LD owners can apply for their equivalent 2LDs. For example, if you own the domain domain.com.my, you can apply for the domain.my domain.

Problem arises when two different 3LD owners with the same domain prefix wants the same 2LD (eg. domain.com.my and domain.net.my). In such a case, whoever that registered their 3LD the earliest will be entitled to own the 2LD.

    LOL. Well, the existing 3LD owners have the priority to purchase the .my within the priority period. Only after that where we can buy the .my. If you would like to invest in this .my business, it could be done. But it will be more expensive than investing in .com, .net, etc though.

    If I am not mistaken, they started selling .my many many years ago but stopped selling them. That’s when you see all the .com.my, .net.my etc. I think they are bringing back the .my domains now.

    LOL. You will need to register a Malaysian company for a .my though.

    Errr…hahaha. I really have no idea. So, what do you plan to put in there? LOL.
