.DM - Dominican Domain Information - International Domain Name Registration made easy by Nominate.Com.

Restrictions: Dominican domains, None

.dm is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Dominica. Registrants of a second-level .dm domain get the corresponding third-level names within .com.dm, .net.dm, and .org.dm automatically included. There are no restrictions on who can register these names, but they are not very heavily used.

One example of a current ".dm" web property is the social community wis.dm, an example of domain hacking.

Time Zone

(UTC4). The Commonwealth of Dominica, commonly known as Dominica, is an island nation in the Caribbean Sea. Locally the name is pronounced /ÝîdÐÆmЬÝêniÝÉkÐÖ/ DOM-i-NEE-kÐÖ, but elsewhere /dÐÖÝêmЬnпkÐÖ/ dÐÖ-MIN-i-kÐÖ is common. In Italian, its name means "Sunday", which was the day on which it was spotted by Christopher Columbus.

Dominica's pre-Columbian name was "Wai'tu kubuli", which means "Tall is her body". The indigenous people of the island, the Caribs, have a territory similar to the Indian reserves of North America. However, its official language is English because o its history as a British colony, territory, and state though a French creole is spoken by many, especially people of older generations. The demonym or adjective of this country is "Dominican" in English, same as that for the Dominican Republic but unlike the Dominican Republic, in which the stress is on the first "i", the stress is on the second "i".
