Pre-register for .SO - Republic of Somalia Skip to main.

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.  HEXONET anticipates strong interest in this ccTLD and will start accepting Landrush and Go-Live Pre-registrations on October 1, 2010 @ 10:00 a.m. CEST.

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.
