.se

.se is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Sweden. The top domain is operated by .SE (The Internet Infrastructure Foundation), but domains must be registered through one of the approved registrars. .SE is a foundation and is managed on the basis of its charter of foundation and its statutes. The Foundation is managed by a Board of Directors, whose decisions are executed by the executive management. In 2006, a new Chairman of the Board, Rune Brandinger, and a new CEO, Danny Aerts, took office.

Prior to April 2003, the rules governing domains under the .se top domain were highly restrictive. Only companies, associations and authorities registered nation-wide were allowed to register a domain, and it had to be very similar to the registered name. Individual products were not eligible for separate domain names, even if they were registered trademarks. Individuals could register one (and only one) domain with the suffix .pp.se (pp is an abbreviation for "privatperson", "private person"), and companies and organizations registered in just a single county were eligible for domains with a .se suffix.

With the new rules, any entity or person may register any number of domains, subject to few restrictions. You may register whatever .se domain you want, as long as it is free, not in .SE's Blocked or Reserved list At the same time, the rules for domain name allocation were changed to the principle of “first-come, first-serve”, more simple rules for dispute resolution were also created.

As of October 2003, .SE started accepting registrations of internationalized domain names, containing the letters å, ä, ö, ü and é. On 6 September 2007, a total of 250 characters became available, supporting names in all of the legally recognized minority languages of Sweden: Finnish, Meänkieli (Tornedalsfinska), Sami, Romany and Yiddish.

.se is the first TLD to offer DNSSEC services.
