Domain Names

The Gambia NIC registers 2nd level domains under the GM domain. There is no provision for 3rd level domain registration and so most Internet addresses under the GM ccTLD has the format http//

An entity (person, organisation or company) residing in, providing information or services for or about The Gambia, or otherwise benefiting the local Internet community of The Gambia may register domain names through a registrar.

An organisation needing to protect their name may register a term if it is clearly and unambiguously identifying the registrant organisation. The validity of the connection is checked by the .GM ccTLD administration. When in doubt the given administrative contact / domain owner will be consulted to ascertain the connection between the applicant and the domain name.
