History .nl domain name
The .nl domain was the first country domain outside that of the United States. It was registered in 1986 by cwi.nl. Until 2003, the .nl domain name was exclusively reserved for Dutch companies. An extract(uitstelsel) from the Chamber of Commerce(KvK) was necessary for its registration. When the .nl domain was made available to private individuals in 2003, the number of Dutch domain names rose explosively. In the same year (2003), the millionth .nl domain name was registered and at the beginning of 2017, more than 5.6 million Dutch domain names already existed.
