DENIC eG (https://www.denic.de/en/) is the manager of Germany’s Top Level Domain .de and thus of the German namespace on the Internet. With more than 16 million domains under management, DENIC ranks among the registries of the world’s top-three TLDs.

Since its inception in 1996 as a not-for-profit cooperative, DENIC’s mission has been to fulfil a public function by supporting a fast, secure and reliable access to websites and web services under .de through the excellence of powerful services, on a 24/7 basis.

More than 6 billion times a day, .de domains are accessed via DENIC’s globally distributed name server network. Operating this service, which is classified part of national critical infrastructures, DENIC is rated among those organisations that are of particular importance for public utility and safety, in Germany.

DENIC is also a leading force in preserving the Internet as an open, free and secure medium and in shaping its continued development in a close collaborative effort with international Internet organisations including CENTR (https://www.centr.org/), ICANN (https://www.icann.org/), RIPE NCC (https://www.ripe.net/) and IETF (https://www.ietf.org/). Moreover, DENIC is actively involved in national and international Internet governance forums like UN-IGF (https://www.intgovforum.org/), EuroDIG (https://www.eurodig.org/) or IGF-D (https://www.intgovforum-deutschland.org/) where it works together with representatives of governments, the private sector, academia and civil society to develop and apply common principles, rules and programs for the future use of the Internet.

DENIC is based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. About 300 companies from the IT and telecommunications industry in Germany and abroad offer .de registration services to the consumer market and support the independent, self-regulatory approach of the Cooperative as DENIC members.
