The LK Domain Registry
The LK Domain Registry was established in 1990. Since its inception, it has served the country not only by providing a professional domain registration service, but also by facilitating development of Internet infrastructure to improve the Internet in Sri Lanka.
The LK Domain Registry is the sole administrator for web addresses that end in “.lk” in Sri Lanka. As the national-level domain name, “.lk” domain provides Sri Lankan organizations and individuals with their unique brand identity on the Internet. In addition to English, domain names can also be registered in the Sinhala and Tamil language top-level domains.
