.kr is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for South Korea (Republic of Korea). Registrations are processed via registration agents.

From September 2006, it became possible to register domain names directly under .kr (although this is currently only possible for internationalized domain names). Trademark holders and public bodies benefited from an "early registration period", after which the owners of .kr third-level domains had priority to get the corresponding second-level domains.

Korea Standard Time (UTC+9) - Summer (DST) not observed (UTC+9) South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea (ROK) and often referred to as Korea is a presidential republic in East Asia, occupying the southern half of the Korean Peninsua. Also known as the "Land of the Morning Calm", it is neighbored by China to the west, Japan to the east and shares a border with North Korea to the north. Its capital is Seoul, a major global city and a leading international financial centre in Asia, being the second largest metropolitan city in the world.

Korea is one of the oldest civilizations in the world, first inhabited as early as the Lower Paleolithic. Following the unification of the Three Korean Kingdoms under Silla in 668 AD, Korea went through the Goryeo and Joseon Dynasty as one nation unil the end of the Korean Empire in 1910. After liberation and division, South Korea was established in 1948 and has since become one of the two most advanced democracies in Asia. Following the Korean War, the South Korean economy grew significantly, transforming the country into an industral powerhouse and an influential military power in the world. South Korea has an international outlook with memberships in the United Nations, WTO, OECD and G-20 major economies. It is also a founding member of APEC and the East Asia Summit, being a visa waiver and major non-NATO ally of the United States. South Korea is now working towards a peaceful reunification with North Korea.
