Various uses, both in and out of Turkmenistan; sometimes marketed as domain for trademark owners
.tm is the Internet country code top-level domain name (ccTLD) for Turkmenistan
Officially known as the Republic of Turkmenistan, and it is found in Central Asia. The country is bordered by Afghanistan to the south-east, Iran to the south and south-west, Uzbekistan to the east and north-east and Kazakhstan to the north and north-west.
Turkmenistan has a total size in area of 488,100km2, making it the 52nd largest country. It has an estimated population of 5,110,000 people, as the 112th most populous country.
The .tm domain name was introduced in 1997, and it is operated by the Internet Computer Bureau (who run NIC.TM), and sponsored by the TM Domain Registry (NetNames).
Though the domain name's intended use is for entities connected with Turkmenistan, applicants are able to register from any legal jurisdiction, especially as a domain for businesses with trademarks, due to .tm being similar to the trademark symbol. However, for entities who are not a resident of Turkmenistan, only domain names in second-level are available for registration.
Registrants who are residents of Turkmenistan are allowed to register for a .tm domain name at third-level under various second-level labels.
Some domain names may be classified by the registry as a premium domain name and will command a higher price. If you request a premium domain name we will contact you before completing your order.
In addition, the registry may at any time reserve domain names from registration or the sale may be restricted to comply with ICANN requirements.
It has been marketed as a domain for businesses with trademarks, due to the common use of "TM" in this context, but new registrations have at times been suspended by the Turkmenistan government due to their concerns about the domains being used for "immoral" purposes.
