.info is a generic top level-domain name (gTLD) in the Domain Name System (DNS), managed and operated by Afilias since its creation. The name .info is derived from information.
The TLD .info was a response to ICANN's highly publicized announcement of a phased release of seven, selected from over 180 proposals, new generic top-level domains in 2000. (Others were .biz, .name, .pro, .aero, .coop, and .museum)
Info is an unrestricted domain. It means that anyone can register a second-level domain for any purpose, similar to the domains .com, .net, and .org. This is in contrast to TLDs such as .edu, or .coop. Info stands for information in about 37 languages, and is a neutral name.
.INFO domain extension ranks #12 among all domain extensions, and #6 among all generic extensions (gTLDs). Currently, there are 4.1 Million registered .info domain names. Afilias is the registry of .info extension.
The oldest (still exists) .info domain name is affillias.info, and it was registered on 25 July 2001.
The most popular .info domain name is rutor.info. Its worldwide rank is 1784.
.INFO domains are most popular in United States. Germany and Canada are the other countries that have most .info domain registrations.
