November 2, 2008 - Wirtland formally applied for its own country's internet top level domain (TLD) to the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, IANA. It is the first time that a virtual country applies for its own country domain. Wirtland applied for authorisation of ".wl" domain. Once granted, all sites in Wirtland will have domain names that will be ending with ".wl" (such as www.Wirtland.wl). Wirtland currently uses domain www.Wirtland.com. IANA allocates and maintains unique codes and numbering systems that are used in the technical standards (“protocols”) that drive the Internet.
