Pre-register Your .SO Domains Early!

dotSO is the Country Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) for The Republic of Somalia.  With this ccTLD being re-delegated to The Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications (MoPT) in April of 2009, the .SO registry has since been preparing for its worldwide release on March 1, 2011.  Since pre-registrations opened at HEXONET on October 1, 2010, a steady volume of pre-registrations have already been accepted. 

Landrush & Landrush Auction Info:

Go-Live Info:

Pre-registration Billing: (IMPORTANT)

For Landrush and Go-Live, on December 16, 2010 and February 14, 2011 respectively, HEXONET will attempt to withdraw the total cost of all your .SO Pre-registrations from your reseller account. This deduction is only to reserve funds in case all your Pre-registrations are successful. Reserved funds will be returned back to your account if any Pre-registrations are not successful or if you delete a Pre-registration 24 hours prior to the respective Landrush or Go-Live launch date.

Please note, that for Go-Live only, 24 hours prior to the actual launch, HEXONET will stop accepting Pre-registrations altogether. Additional domain requests will be queued up and submitted to the registry once our main batch-queue has been submitted successfully. As always, if any Pre-registrations should fail, refunds will automatically be applied to your reseller account.
