About us


The administration of the top-level domain name .GT (ccTLD .GT for its acronym in English) is the only entity in charge of maintaining the registry of Internet domain names with the country code assigned to Guatemala

In 1992, the “InterNet Assigned Numbers Authority” (IANA) delegated to the Universidad del Valle Guatemala (hereinafter UVG) the administration of the country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) “.gt”.

The UVG undertakes to follow the generally accepted guidelines for this type of operation, especially those set out in the documents:

“RFC-1591 (Mar 1994)”
“IANA ccTLD Delegation Practices Document (ICP-1) (21 May 1999)”
