A while ago we already informed you that NIC.ar (Argentina) considered to allow registrations under .ar directly. Well it looks like the decision has been made. Registrations under .ar are possible from now on. NIC.ar follows in the footsteps of for example Nominet (.uk-registry) which also liberalised registrations under .uk a while ago.
NIC.ar is considering to allow registrations under the second level extension .ar. They follow, among others, Nominet who made .uk domain names available for registration.
