A .net Domain Name Is One of the World’s Most Original Web Addresses

WHY A .NET DOMAIN NAME? For 30 years, .net’s timeless appeal and authenticity has earned the trust of millions of individuals and businesses all around the world, and remains a sought after web address amongst the many top-level domain (TLD) choices available today.

net is one of the original top-level domains[2] (the other six being comorgedugovmil, and arpa) despite not being mentioned in RFC 920, having been created in January 1985.

Verisign, the operator of net after acquiring Network Solutions, held an operations contract that expired on 30 June 2005. ICANN, the organization responsible for domain management, sought proposals from organizations to operate the domain upon expiration of the contract. Verisign regained the contract bid and secured its control over the net registry for another six years. On 30 June 2011, the contract with Verisign was automatically renewed for another six years. This is because of a resolution approved by the ICANN board, which states that renewal will be automatic as long as Verisign meets certain ICANN requirements.[3] As of March 2021, Verisign continues to manage .net.[4]
