We are truly regret to inform that .MM domain extension will temporarily stop receiving registration application, with immediate effect.

We had received latest update from the registry that they require time to reconstruct a new framework of rules and regulations for .MM domain, with that registry will temporary halt on accepting new domain registration until the date of 15th October 2018 tentatively.

Meanwhile, the good news is that domain renewal service remain, partner may still submit domain renewal application via Partner Central.

Hence, we would advise partners to beware of emails that sent from CONIC, to avoid fall victim into the fraud. WebNIC shall hold no responsible and accountable, in any form, if partner had paid any form of payment directly to CONIC.
