.int is a sponsored top-level domain (gTLD) used on the Internet's Domain Name System.

According to current IANA policy, the .int gTLD is reserved for international treaty-based organizations, United Nations agencies and organizations or entities having Observer status at the UN. This top-level domain was initially created for use by NATO, to replace the previous .nato TLD.

.int is considered the strictest gTLD in as much as it implies that the holder is a subject of international law. For this reason, the application procedure requires the applicant to provide evidence that it is indeed treaty-based by providing a United Nations treaty registration number and that it has independent legal existence.

Hence, the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) saw its application for a .int domain rejected on the grounds that the Convention did not explicitly create an entity subject of international law. However, POPS appealed to the IANA Reconsideration Committee and obtained its .int domain on the grounds that other Conventions lacking such specific language had nevertheless obtained a .int registration .

Additionally, .int was historically also used for "Internet infrastructure databases". The contents of .arpa had been slated to be moved into .int, but in 2000 the IAB recommended that no new infrastructure databases be added to .int and that .arpa retain its current use. . Its last remaining role was for reverse translation of IPv6 addresses under the zone. This zone was officially turned off on 6 June 2006 in favour of, also administered by IANA.

The sub-domain was used by the European Union-affiliated institutions. However, the aforementioned institutions‚ÇÖ domain names changed to the TLD .eu on May 9, 2006 (Europe Day). The institutions‚ÇÖ previous "" addresses will continue to be accessible for a transitional period of at least one year.
