SONIC hereby advises that the registrar accreditation for Ninhand Networks CO.,LTD (11th.com) has been terminated effective from 1st May 2017 for breaching the Registry Registrar Agreement. Despite multiple warnings and collection attempts, Ninhand Networks has failed to meet its obligation to pay the domain transaction fees owing.
SONIC is in the process of developing a transition plan in order to ensure continuity of the domains previously under the management of Ninhand. Registrants are advised to await further announcements from SONIC relating this matter.
To encourage the development of the Somali ICT Sector, SONIC makes .so domains available to Somalis at a lower price from the Somali registrars based in Somalia.
On July 8th 2015, the .so ccTLD registry has been migrated to the Somali Network Information Center (SONIC).
Existing registrars who wish to continue providing domain registration services for .so should contact SONIC support by email to complete onboarding procedures.
