Dot-CR Domains Soon on Their Way

It’s about to get easier to visit Web sites hosted in Costa Rica. Starting soon, Costa Rican Web sites will be able to end with a “.cr” domain. At the moment, sites must use a “” domain or some variation thereof, like “” or “”

Network Information Center-Costa Rica – a Costa Rican entity empowered by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority to administer the “.cr” domain – will make the domain available first to Web sites owning “” real estate.

For instance, someone owning will have 90 days to register, after which that domain will be first-come, first-served.

The annual fee for registering a “.cr” domain will be $100, according to government newspaper La Gaceta.
