If you want the functionality of a .COM, but need a top-level domain that tells visitors your passions lie in Mexico, then .COM.MX is for you.
Originally launched in 1989, .COM.MX is now being re-launched with no organization or location restrictions. So if your family, your business or interests are tied to Mexico, say “Si!” to .COM.MX
Up to August 2009 domain registrations besides .MX, consist of third-level names beneath second-level names which parallel some of the top-level domains:
- .com.mx: Commercial entities (actually unrestricted, like .com)
- .net.mx: Network providers (registration limited to qualifying entities)
- .org.mx: Non-profit organizations (registration limited to qualifying entities)
- .ngo.mx: Non-profit organizations or Civil society organizations (registration NOT limited to qualifying entities)
- .edu.mx: Educational institutions (registration limited to qualifying entities)
- .gob.mx: Federal, State or Municipal Governmental entities only (.gob derives from the Spanish word for government: “Gobierno“)
Currently second level domains can be registered directly under .mx.
On April 30, 2009, second level domain registrations were 0.06% of the total. A month later the value was up to 4.9% On April 30, 2010, second level registrations were 21.4% of the total.
