.it.ao registration your Angolan domain, click here!.ao is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Angola. It is administered by the college of engineering of the University of Agostinho Neto.
The registry Web site, as of 2006, has not been modified since 2002, and consists of a single page in Portuguese. One of the few links on the page is to a document in Microsoft Word format, in English, which gives registration rules for the domain wich may not be up-to-date; they state that registration by entities outside Angola is to be done only in the .it.ao subdomain. The search engine Google seems to be the unique entity using the subdomain ".it.ao". It also say that registrations are only taken at the third level (when a Google search shows some sites exist at second-level .ao names).

Time ZoneWAT (UTC+1) - Summer (DST) not observed (UTC+1) Angola, officially the Republic of Angola (Portuguese: RepÈ¦blica de Angola, pronounced Kongo: Repubilika ya Ngola), is a country in south-central Africa bordering Namibia to the south, Democratic Republic of he Congo to the north, and Zambia to the east, and with a west coast along the Atlantic Ocean. The exclave province Cabinda has a border with the Republic of the Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Angola was a Portuguese colony from the 16th century to 1975. The country is the second-largest petroleum and diamond producer in sub-aharan Africa, yet its people are among the continent's poorest. According to the International Monetary Fund, more than $4 billion in oil receipts have disappeared from Angola's treasury in the 2000s. In August 2006, a peace deal was signed with a faction of the FLEC, a separatist guerrilla from the Cabinda exclave in the North, which is still active. About 65% of Angola's oil comes from that region.
