.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 ranks #8 among all domain extensions, and #5 among all generic extensions (gTLDs). Currently, there are 4.9M registered .info domain names. Afilias is the current registry of .info extension.
