.to registration your Tongan domain, click here!.to is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) of the island kingdom of Tonga.
The government of Tonga sells domains in its ccTLD to any interested party. Because to is a useful English preposition, it became popular to craft memorable URLs called domain hacks that take advantage of this, such as Daniel Bernstein's website http://cr.yp.to or Refused's page.to/come.
The .to ccTLD is administered by the Tonga Network Information Center (Tonic).
The city of Toronto, in Ontario, Canada, has TO as its nickname. Therefore, the .to extension is used by many small businesses located in Toronto, despite Canada's own .ca. The .to extension is also used by some BitTorrent sites and pornography sites.As the .to domains are paid for, all normal DNS operations are possible and registered sites are not required to display ads on behalf of the registrar. Some domains are free, like .edu.to, but only to real Tongan schools. At this moment businesses registered in Tonga can also get free domains. People who sell on .to domains can claim a bonus.
.to is one of few ccTLDs that (officially) does not maintain a (public) WHOIS database providing registrant information .

Time Zone(UTC+13) - Summer (DST) (UTC+13) This article is about the Kingdom of Tonga. For other uses, see Tonga (disambiguation). The Kingdom of Tonga in the south Pacific Ocean comprises an archipelago of 171 islands, 48 of them inhabited, stretching over a distance of about 800 kilometres (500 miles) in a north-south line. The islands lie south of Samoa, about one-third of the way from New Zealand to Hawaii.
Tonga, the only sovereign monarchy among the island nations of the Pacific Ocean, has a unique distinction as the only island nation to have avoided formal colonization.
