.ai is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Anguilla. It is administered by the government of Anguilla.

Second and third level registrations[edit | edit source]

Registrations within off.ai, com.ai, net.ai, and org.ai are available unrestrictedly, worldwide. From September 15, 2009, second level registrations within .ai are available to everyone worldwide.

There is a US$100 fee to become a registered user at whois.ai. Domains are $100 for each two-year period; ordering requires a physical process with a faxed form and manual payment and address confirmation required, with between a one to three-month waiting period for the domain to be available..[1]

.ai accepts the registration of emoji domains.

Records on the TLD[edit | edit source]

The .ai TLD is notable for having an MX record, allowing mail to be delivered directly to "recipient@ai." (with trailing period).[2][3]
