.kr is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for South Korea (Republic of Korea). Registrations are processed via registration agents.

From September 2006, it became possible to register domain names directly under .kr (although this is currently only possible for internationalized domain names). Trademark holders and public bodies benefited from an "early registration period", after which the owners of .kr third-level domains had priority to get the corresponding second-level domains.

1. Sunrise I (September 18–November 20, 2006)

2. Sunrise II (November 21–February 27, 2007)

3. Landrush (March 28–April 11, 2007)

4.General Registration (from April 19. 2007)

In 2011 a new top-level domain was registered for South Korea, intended for domain names in the local language. The top-level domain is .한국 Domain names and working sites got active during 2011.
