Norid AS runs the registry for Norwegian domain names. All domains directly under .no are registered with us. In addition to processing applications we develop the domain name policy according to the needs of society. We are also responsible for the technical operation and development of associated services. We also handle other national tasks related to our core activities.
In order to develop and adapt the rules for allocating domain name subscriptions, we co-operate with various stakeholders. We also take social responsibility by working to keep the domain name system reliable and robust, and to ensure that it is governed in an open and democratic way.
The service is regulated by the Domain Name Regulations and is supervised by the Norwegian Communications Authority (Nkom). Norid is not a public administrative agency, and the allocation of domain name subscriptions is based on private law. We are a neutral party, and the business is run non-profit.
Norid was a part of the Uninett group for more than 25 years. In 2021, the ownership was transferred and Norid is now owned by the Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation.
