NIC is the delegated authority for registering domain names in the .CG top-level domain. The domain name space is served on a first in first out basis. NIC has a rather liberal policy about domain name. NIC does its best to ensure that the top-level domain is run for the best interest of the country. For the last 15 years, it has maintained contacts with different local companies and authorities, and up to date, has avoided litigations. NIC is open to suggestions and guidelines that the local authorities and companies are willing to see implemented. Until today, it has been run in a fair and non partisan basis. The particularity is that NIC ensures that local citizens of the country are entitled to a free domain name. This is quite unique on the internet.
