Welcome to DENIC eG!
DENIC is the central registry for all domains under the Top Level Domain .de and thus responsible for the operation and the technical reliability of an important resource of the German Internet. We provide an automatic electronic registration system for administering .de domains and we operate a network of name servers distributed all over the world. In doing so, DENIC performs a technically demanding task, and along with its members, it shoulders responsibility for an important segment of the Internet.
The DENIC website shall help you to get a better grasp of DENIC and of what domain administration means. Here you find any information relevant to the registration and administration of .de domains. We also explain fundamental procedures, like changing providers or the TRANSIT procedure. In addition to that, you find detailed information about ENUM and learn about the benefits this service may offer you.
If you want to come to know even more about domain administration, go to the section Background. Here you find all types of information on the field of domains. Learn, for instance, how the Domain Name System (DNS) works and where DENIC's name servers are located. We also make available charts demonstrating the development of .de domains as well as comprehensive statistical figures.
