Neustar has received a contract to continue helping theÂ Department of CommerceÂ operate the U.S. governmentâ€™s internet top-level domain through 2029.
The Department of Commerceâ€™s National Telecommunications and Information Administration awarded the 10-year contract, Neustar said Wednesday.
On the internet, the .US domain serves as the countryâ€™s official country code. Neustar has been in charge of the domainâ€™s operation since 2001.
â€œWe will also continue to work closely with government and law enforcement agencies to combat domain abuse, such as phishing and the sale of illegal opioids online,â€ said Nicolai Bezsonoff, senior vice president and general manager of Neustarâ€™s registry solutions division.
Neustar also provides registry support for Colombiaâ€™s .CO domain and New York Cityâ€™s .NYC domain.
