The .so domain is used as the designated ccTLD for Somalia. While it was initially created in 1997, the company managing the extension Monolith went defunct before .so gained widespread use.
In 2009, .so domain names were relaunched and set to be managed by the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications of the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia. As of 2015, .so is managed by Somali Network Information Center.
As a short and pronounceable domain extension, .so domains have become popular among website developers looking to use memorable keywords for their web address.
