Iraq applies for TLD “.iq”

Iraq has applied for the top level domain, .iq which would identify web addresses ending in .iq as “existing in Iraq”. IANA, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority is already listing .iq as the top level domain for Iraq, (see entire list) but there is no more information available.

The USA Today story references a survey done by the US – led occupation in Iraq which reports 6% of Iraqis surveyed have access to the Internet and 2% say they access the Internet regularly. 12% of Iraqi’s surveyed own computers.
