ⓘ .ml

.ml is the Internet country code top-level domain for Mali.

The domain was initially managed by Sotelma, a Malian telecommunications company. After Sotelma was privatised in 2009, the.ml zone was redelegated by IANA to the Agence des Technologies de l’Information et de la Communication AGETIC, a Malian government agency, and the process completed in 2013. The agency then announced that it would give away.ml domains for free with a view to improve the usage and the knowledge of the IT industry in Mali. It is the first African nation to start giving away domains for free.
