Israel Internet Association moving to a registrar model for .IL domains

Dot .IL, the ccTLD of Israel, was the 3rd national TLD to be allocated, on October 24, 1985.

The Internet Association of Israel (ISOC-IL) is moving away from directi registrations of .IL domains.

A little bit of background history.

As the Registry of .IL and its various second level domains, ISOC-IL manages domain names since the dawn of general public use of the Internet in Israel, in the 1990s.

Until 2007, the Registry has served as the sole registrar and registry managing body. From that date, ISOC-IL commenced accreditation of other bodies to serve as secondary registrars. To date, ISOC-IL has authorized ten registrars who have been acting in parallel with the Registry.

The new policy will transform the ISOC-IL focus solely on management and supervision, adjusting to the global model sued by many registers worldwide: The domain names with country suffixes (ccTLDs) are managed by non-profit neutral entities such as ISOC-IL.

ISOC-IL will continue to manage directly, the educational second level domain of Israel.
