GMO Internet’s starts handling .ai domain name registrations

Maria Nikolova

The domain name is set to be particularly attractive to businesses engaged in the artificial intelligence area.

As artificial intelligence (AI) expands into an increasing number of business areas and everyday life aspects, it is barely surprising that companies engaged in AI are looking into the possibility to acquire a domain name including the coveted “AI” abbreviation., an ICANN-accredited domain registrar which is a part of GMO Internet Inc. (TYO:9449), has sought to respond to this trend. Effective today, the company starts accepting registration applications for .ai domain names.

The pricing of the service varies depending on the customer demands. The availability of the desired name cannot be guaranteed but, as the company notes, it is easier to secure a name ending with .ai than with .com or .net. Moreover, the service will be highly attractive to businesses engaged in artificial intelligence activities, as well as to media that publish content related to AI.

The domain name registration applications will be handled on a “first come first served” basis.

It is worth noting that .ai is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Anguilla. However, restrictions on such domain registrations were relaxed in September 2009. also offers domain protection services to its clients. The logic of the solution is simple. The owner of the website gets to set additional protections to a range of parameters – any change concerning these parameters will require an approval by the owner. The parameters include domain management, server name management, “whois” information management, automated updates management, etc. This means that even if a third-party manages to log in, the attacker will not be able to make any changes to the website, as the changes will require an approval by the lawful administrator and/or owner.

The service also seeks to prevent non-voluntary errors that may damage a website. For example, domain administrators often manage multiple domains with a single ID. As the number of domains to be managed increases, so does the likelihood of changing the setting of the wrong domain. The new domain protection service also helps avoid such a mishap.

The new service was launched as the cyber risks for businesses are on the rise.
