Hola!

In case there are some mexican readers here...

It is little difficult for an english speaker to find information
about mexican domains. Is it possible to register a domain like
"fiesta.mx"? I have seen sites selling ".com.mx" and similar but not
just ".mx".

Thanks,
Peter

Although there are some lucky people who got their hands on .mx domains
on
the early days, the nic.mx registrar is no longer accepting just
.mx domain names

You have to buy .com.mx or .org.mx or whatever. I'm based in Mexico,
feel free to contact me if you need help.

Hi, Peter, hi list. First post here, and it had to be off-topic :-/

But here's your Mexican reader :-)

There are in fact domains like that (say, unam.mx, itesm.mx), but those
were registered a long time ago, and NIC.MX policies have changed.  See
Q.2 from their domain FAQ at http://www.nic.mx/es/FAQ.Dominios.

Don't know if there's a translation (used to be, can't find it now), so
I'll translate for you:

  Can I register domains directly under .mx?

  No, since March 1997 it is no longer possible to register domain names
  directly under .mx. Prior to that date such domains were given to
  educational institutions, but in November 1996, .edu.mx was added.
From
  that point on we stopped registering domains directly under .mx.

So there. I'll also add that, in my experience, registering a .com.mx is
very straightforward, but anything else requires paperwork. NIC.mx for
some (annoying) reason requires you to demonstrate that you are a
non-profit institution before assigning you a .org.mx, a network
provider for .net.mx, and a school for .edu.mx.

This may have changed recently, YMMV.

Salud.

Thanks for the information. Strange policies but if that is the way it
is, then that is the way it is. Sure does make for some ugly urls
though.

Thanks again,
Peter
