Migration successfully completed, National Registry created for .bn domains
26/12/2014
 
Brunei Darussalam Network Information Centre Sdn Bhd (BNNIC) and Telekom Brunei Berhad (TelBru) recently conducted a joint technical migration in preparation of the change for the administration of .bn domain names. Approximately 1300 existing .bn domain names have been migrated to the national .bn registry operated by BNNIC. There have been no reported disruption to the existing customer domains as of today.
 
BNNIC has commenced operations on the existing domains effective from 18 December 2014. All consumer requests for new registrations, renewals and modifications are now open for day to day processing. These include requests pertaining to .gov.bn, .com.bn, .org.bn, .edu.bn, .net.bn until further notice. All other user requests related to .gov.bn shall be exclusively managed by the Prime Minister’s Office.
 
The introduction of the national registry for .bn domains gives customers the freedom to choose from BNNIC accredited registrars. TelBru shall take care of all consumer specific requests until formal accreditation is awarded in the coming weeks. Existing customers should take note that certain essential information such as business name, expiry date and contact details shall be published on BNNIC’s website at www.bnnic.bn under the WHOIS policy.
 
BNNIC would like to extend a sincere thank you to all contributors and request potential .bn domain users to establish their mark in the interconnected world we live in today.
