.mm registration your Burmese domain, click here!.mm is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Burma (now officially the Union of Myanmar). It was assigned in 1997. Prior to 1989, the ISO 3166-1 code for Burma was BU, but no .bu ccTLD was ever assigned.
A company run by two Australian expatriates in Burma, Eagle Group, set up the first Internet access to Burma in 1997. They contracted with a British company called Digiserve based in High Wycombe, United Kingdom to provide DNS services for .mm. All .mm DNS queries were handled by Digiserve's two name servers acting as root name servers for .mm, ns1.digiserve.com and ns2.digiserve.com respectively. In 1999, Eagle Group's service was shut down by the Burma government.
Afterwards, these two servers then delegated the SOA authority of .com.mm, .net.mm, .edu.mm and org.mm TLDs to the two name servers managed by Myanmar Posts and Telecommuncations, ns0.mpt.net.mm and ns1.mpt.net.mm, both servers were located in Yangon.
In the February 2002, DNS servers of DigiServe were hacked by pro-democracy activists, which resulted in the traffic to all .mm domain names including www.gov.mm being redirected to a website demanding the release of famous student leader Min Ko Naing for a period of three days.
In the beginning of 2005, MPT finally retook management control of .mm name space and replaced Digiserve nameservers with their own.
Business in Burma can register for domain names within the .net.mm and .com.mm zones through Myanmar Teleport (formerly Bagan Cybertech) or from Myanmar Post & Telecomms directly. .edu.mm, .org.mm, .gov.mm domain names are reserved for official and government use. There is no www.nic.mm or whois service provided.
Again, Burma Teleport's (formerly Bagan Cybertech) service was also shut down by the Burma government. Now, only government-owned Burma Post & Telecomms controls all the services for internet and email.

Time ZoneMMT (UTC+6:30) Burma, officially the Union of Myanmar, is the largest country by geographical area in mainland Southeast Asia, or Indochina. The country is bordered by the People's Republic of China on the northeast, Laos on the east, Thailand on the southeast, Bagladesh on the west, India on the northwest, and the Bay of Bengal to the southwest with the Gulf of Martaban and Andaman Sea defining its southern periphery. One-third of Burma's total perimeter, 1,930 kilometres (1,199 mi), forms an uninterrupted coastline.
Burma's diverse population has played a major role in defining its politics, history and demographics in modern times, and the country continues to struggle to mend its ethnic tensions. Its political system remains under the tight control of the SPD, the military-led government, led since 1992 by Senior General Than Shwe. The military has dominated government since General Ne Win led a coup in 1962 that toppled the civilian government of U Nu. The country's culture, heavily influenced by neighbours, is based on Theravada Buddhism intertwined with local elements.
