.uy is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Uruguay. Domain names can be registered at second-level or at third-level. As of 11 June 2012, second level .uy registrations are possible.

Second-level domains


The Servicio Central de Informática (SeCIU, Central Computing Service) of the University of the Republic is the responsible authority to manage and register domains under .uy and its subdomains since April 1990, delegated by IANA through InterNIC. The domains under .com.uy are managed and registered by Antel via its website dominiosuy (nic.com.uy) instead. Domains directly under .uy can be registered directly at SeCIU or after the registrar entities it authorized, being Antel and other private companies.[1]
