.so Background Information

.so is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Somalia.

Somalia currently does not have a recognized central government; the operations of this domain had therefore been officially delegated to Monolith Innovation Group, a company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which is now defunct. There are therefore no *.so domains currently in active use.

As of 2008[update], the .so zone lists three non-functional name servers: does not have data for the .so domain, ns2.granitecanyon does not respond and only sporadically is able to resolve the site (as

The webpage at the URL contained a short message stating that "As Somalia has no internationally recognized government, this domain is not currently used. We simply have parked this top level domain till an official government is impleented. If you are looking for information about Somalia, please visit Yahoo's Somalia category." As of July 2008[update], the site merely returns "This is a private server hosting the following domains: BASE.ORG, ML.ORG and DATTA.NET. These domains are in use and not for sale. -- admin at"

Somalia (Somali: Soomaaliya; Arabic: ÛºãäÛ´ãêãàÛºãä‚ÇÄ transliteration: aß ú-ß óʽmýül), officially the Republic of Somalia (Somali: Jamhuuriyadda Soomaaliya, Arabic: Û ãàãçãêÛ˜ãèÛ¨ ÛºãäÛ´ãêãàÛºãä‚ÇÄ transliteration: Jumhʽriyyat aß ú-ß óʽmýül) andformerly known as the Somali Democratic Republic, is a country located in the Horn of Africa. It is bordered by Djibouti to the northwest, Kenya on its southwest, the Gulf of Aden with Yemen on its north, the Indian Ocean at its east, and Ethiopia to the west.

Italian Somaliland gained its independence from Italy on 1 July 1960. On the same day, it united with British Somaliland, which gained independence on 26 June 1960, to form the Somali republic. The Somali state currently exists largely in a de jure capacity; Somalia has a weak but largely recognised central government authority, the Transitional Federal Government (TFG), but this is only the latest in a string of ineffectual, externally recognized governing authorities.
