Sidn logo The SIDN will “explore” the next time or the extension has enough value, let the organization know. After that agreement should be reached with the Norwegian registry Norid, which manages the .BV domain. The .BV domain is for Bouvet Island, an island in the Atlantic Ocean covered by Norway.

At this moment it is not possible to register a domain but .BV Norid claims it regularly receives requests from companies for such a domain. It SIDN would take the technical management of the top-level domain in itself. Only bv’s likely to register a domain name .BV. What it will cost, can spokeswoman Marnie Duijnhoven SIDN not yet say.
