SGNIC was formed in October 1995 with the main purpose of administering the Internet domain name space in Singapore as well as to provide a forum for the local Internet Service Providers and regulatory bodies to discuss issues related to the efficient administration of internet services in Singapore.
In November 1995, SGNIC took over the operation of Domain Name Registration (DNR) Services from the Technet Unit upon its acquisition by Sembawang Media.
Before 1997, the acutal operations were housed and operated by the New Media & Internet Cluster (NMI) of the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA). In Jul 1997, SGNIC was registered as a company in ACRA.
From then till the present, the policy and direction of SGNIC has been set by the SGNIC Committee which comprises of all the major commercial and regulatory agencies involved with Internet in Singapore.
Since .SG enables you to protect your business online, a domain with .SG makes your web address unique and easy to memorize. A .SG extension is doing much more, helping you reach and communicate with the audience in Singapore.
