Until now, KS has administered the category domains herad.no and kommune.no, where around 500 domains associated with municipalities and county authorities are registered. As of 23 May Norid will undertake this responsibility in agreement with KS.

When Norid takes over, all the domains under herad.no and kommune.no will be subject to the domain name policy for .no. This means, among other things, that each domain has to be associated with a registrar, and the municipality must accept the terms of the domain name policy.

Registrars that are already responsible for municipal domain names have been asked to contact their customers and assist with the practicalities that are necessary due to this change. Municipalities that do not use a registrar, will receive information directly from Norid.
