What name can I register?
Anybody in the world is able to register a .st domain. Although, the .st is the country code top level domain for Sao Tome and Principe, any corporation or individual in the world can register a domain name ending with .st.The global consensus of the use of ST domains varies - e.g. .ST used for street address, words ending with .ST or as a new standard for registering telephone numbers as domain names. Those and similar interpretations of .ST is already well established among thousands of users all over the world and we see no reason to change this in the future. There are special domains that are reserved. The reserved address space maintains the integrity of the .ST domain on a specific country basis for residents of Sao Tome and Principe. The purpose is also to establish a solid framework for any future use of the ST top-level domain for Sao Tome and Principe.
