Registering .AN Domains
The AN Domain Registration ("AN_DomReg") is an entity of the University of the Netherlands Antilles ("UNA") and is managed by the Computer Center of the UNA ("CCUNA"). The function of the AN_DomReg is to guard the entry of the second-level Domain Names for the Nederlands Antilles and also to enforce the policies associated with the registration of Domain Names. This applies to all Domain Names ending with .AN. The process of assigning Domain Name requests are handled in the sequence of First In First Out. Most certainly the restrictions that apply to the assigning of a domain name that is associated with a land code are much higher than those for the popular ".COM" or ".NET" extentions.
The regulation stipulates that the organization or entity requesting a domain name present an official Settlement Permit ("Vestigingsvergunning") of one of the islands pertaining to Netherlands Antilles and that the organization or entity is registered at the Chamber of Commerce ("Kamer van Koophandel"). For entities or organizations not forming part of the Netherlands Antilles or who are not registered at the Chamber of Commerce, third level domain names are made available. These are in the form of (e.g. .COM.AN or name.NET.AN).
