Neustar wins contract to continue operating .Us through 2029.

The U.S. government has extended its contract with Neustar to operate the .Us domain name extension for up to the next ten years, until 2029.


National Telecommunications and Information Administration announced today that the contract was awarded on June 28. The government does not pay Neustar to run .Us but Neustar collects registration fees from .us registrants.


Neustar has operated the namespace since 2001. As a country code domain with numerous third-level registrations by local government entities, it has added complexities compared to most top level domains.


There are over 2 million .us domains under management.


.Us hasn't established the foothold that some country code domains, such as .de (Germany) have. That's because of the U.S.'s early role in the internet. Many people think of .com as the de facto country code of the United States.
