    A Country domain system

    Hello,

    I am looking to find some information about domain management;
    as pknic.net.pk PKNIC operates and administers the "Shared Registry System" for Internet name space for .PK domains

    what is Shared Registry System? as long as I know their system seems to be very old;

    Who are responsible for a country related domain names? and who are the main body which approves other domain registration companies such enom, godaddy etc

    looking forward to hear your ideas
    Regards

    ICANN is the main organisation which approves registrars like enom and godaddy. Individual countries are responsible for the management of their own cctlds. Countries delegate this responsibility to organization they see fit to run their cctld, sometimes they are private companies, sometimes they are government run organizations. For example cctld for uk is currently being managed by nominet.
