About

The Council of European National Top-Level Domain Registries (CENTR) is an association of Internet Country Code Top-Level Domain Registries - commonly known as ccTLD Registries. It has a European focus, but is open for membership from all geographical areas.

CENTR has offices in UK, Austria and Belgium and consists of full members, associate members, observers and a secretariat. Today, CENTR counts over 50 ccTLDs from around the world amongst its membership.

One of CENTR's main objectives is to provide a forum for its members to exchange information and discuss issues of importance. The CENTR secretariat also collects and documents information about member registries for internal and external use.
