.it is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Italy.
Because it is also the English word it, and many words end with -it, this can commonly used in the construction of domain hacks, such as play.it (now owned by CBS Radio), write.it or make.it.
There are a number of reserved second-level domain names, for example, domain names like Italy.it, or other names that are referring to geographical regions of Italy.
- .gov.it – The official governmental domain, and its use is increasing rapidly.
- .edu.it – Domain has been investigated, but its proposal was never formalized.
- Domains in the form comune.<locality>.it and comune.<locality>.<province code>.it are reserved to Italian municipalities. The former variant is normally used by the province capital towns, the latter by smaller towns. Eventual blank spaces in the town name can either be omitted or replaced with a hyphen sign.
- Domains in the form provincia.<province>.it are reserved to Italian provinces.
- Domains in the form regione.<region>.it are reserved to Italian regions.
