.kp domain

Via DPRK Forum and “hapo”–

DPRK Forum posted a thorough rundown on the DPRK’s internet domain.  I could not do a better job than him, so I will just copy his comments:


The .kp TLD is up and running. There seems to be only one publicly accessible site, and is thinking of accepting registrations soon. What the conditions of registring is unclear, but is interesting all the same. If there are other sites, I do not know.

Will all the pro-DPRK sites go to the new domain? After all, North Korea is not too fond of Japan. If you have not seen it yet, here are some links for you:
