Domain name legislation
All domain names ending in .dk are regarded as a public resource. They are allocated to the Danish state by ICANN, the global administrator of the internet’s domain name system.
Therefore, the purpose of the Danish Act on Internet Domains is to provide a framework for access to and use and administration of internet domains, the aim being to promote innovative internet development in society.
The Act creates a basis for licensing administrators. The Danish Internet Forum (DIFO) currently holds the licence, and administration of .dk domain names is handled in practice by DK Hostmaster, which is wholly owned by DIFO.
