.tp was the listed Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for East Timor. The letters used refer to Timor PortuguȬs or Portuguese Timor a legacy from the nation's previous status as a Portuguese colony. The process of decolonisation was abrptly interrupted by the invasion by Indonesia on 7 December 1975. (.tp) was officially launched in December 1997 by, an internet service provider based in Dublin, Ireland, in cooperation with the East Timorese authorities in absentia, while East Timor was under Indonesian military control.

Background Information :

Portuguese Timor was the name of East Timor when it was under Portuguese control. During this period, Portugal shared the island of Timor with the Netherlands East Indies, and later with Indonesia.

The first Europeans to arrive in the region were Portuguese in 1515. Dominican friars established a presence on the island in 1556, and the territory was declared a Portuguese colony in 1702. Following a Lisbon-instigated decolonisation process in 1974, Indonesia invaded the territory in 1975 ending Portuguese rule.
