Registration .SX internet domain

Published on: Aug 24, 2012
On September 22, 2012, SX Registry will officially launch the local Sint Maarten Priority Phase, allowing local businesses and residents to register their .sx internet domain.
The phase will be launched in two timeframes:

- The first timeframe is for companies only and will launch on September 22nd until Oct 6th. Companies registered at the Chamber of Commerce prior to January of 2012 are eligible.
- The second part will launch on October 7th and run till Oct 21st, and will give individuals the opportunity to register their domain name(s) and email(s). Individuals interested should have established their residency in Sint Maarten prior to January of 2012.
The local Sint Maarten Priority phase is to help companies and individuals from the island benefit from the .SX domain. Usage of a top level domain will affect how search engines will perceive your site, and will affect the amount of traffic you will receive, therefore Sint Maarten having her very own TLD will increase the interest for the island in the various industry via the world wide web.

SX Registry’s objective is to promote the usage of .SX domains on a national and international level. A sales force to finalize agreements with local Registrars is busy at the moment and the local registrars will be announced very soon in the coming weeks. This entails that local companies and soon individuals will be able to register their new domain(s) and email(s). Government and the business community is encouraged to take the necessary steps within their operations and secure their domain(s) and email(s) registered as .SX.

Last November 2011, St. Maarten launched its new top-level internet domain (TLD) .SX, becoming the only other country in the world with the same two letter code .SX and three letter airport code SXM. The other country is Mexico which is represented as .MX and airport code MEX. This has opened up many possibilities for the island in the internet industry. SX Registry is an open registry that markets on the open market making potential for revenue greater compared to closed registry. The registry of the .SX top Level Domain (TLD) is managed by SX Registry SA. SX Registry promotes the usage and the registration of .SX domain names on a national and international level via attractive registrar packages and a dedicated marketing program. Truly global, the Registry is based on the island of Sint Maarten with technical operations performed by OpenRegistry.com in Canada and Luxembourg.
