.ne.pw registration your Palau domain, click here!.pw is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Palau.
.pw has been opened for personal registrations under a similar structure to that which .name had at its original launch, in which people can obtain third level registrations of the form john.smith.pw along with the corresponding e-mail address of email@example.com. Second-level domain registrations are not permitted, so that the registry can reserve all second-level names for use in constructing these addresses. Trademark owners have the possibility to apply for a defensive registration that will prevent anybody else from registering a third-level domain that contains that trademark.
The personal e-mail offered in .pw has the feature of spam-prevention through the use of whitelisting; senders must be authorized before their messages can get through.
Through a DNS wildcard record, most second-level names in .pw go to a page offering registration of addresses within that name. Attempts to access any unregistered third-level domain similarly return a page offering registration of that specific address; for instance the website "satan.evil.pw" would return an advert claiming "it can be used for anything: the evil surname, the evil family, the evil fan club, the evil alumni group, evil genealogy, or any other community or group about evil."The traditional registry address of nic.pw goes to one of these wildcard pages; the actual official registry site is at pwregistry.pw.
