The management of the global domain name system as well as the system of the central servers that ensure the functioning of the DNS (Domain Name System) is realized through the independent ICANN organization (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). The Croatian Academic and Research Network (CARNET) manages the national domain of the Republic of Croatia (.hr) since 1993.

ICANN73 Community Forum was held virtually, 7-10 March 2022. All sessions were conducted during regular working hours in San Juan, Puerto Rico (Atlantic Standard Time / UTC-4).

The ccNSO has organized various sessions on Domain Name System abuse in recent ICANN Public Meetings. Country code top-level domain managers and others shared their experiences with respect to mitigating DNS abuse, focusing on what ccTLDs do nationally and regionally.

During ICANN72, the conversation shifted to focus on exploring the potential role of the ccNSO itself. Both ccTLDs and other stakeholders suggested activities the ccNSO could undertake to complement existing work being done by the community.

The current proposal builds on previous work during ICANN72 and a ccNSO workshop held in November 2021 when ccTLDs and the broader community suggested areas that the ccNSO should get involved in with respect to DNS abuse. An ad hoc committee under auspices of the ccNSO Council was formed to evaluate the suggestions, and to work on a proposed roadmap. ccNSO Council discussed the draft roadmap during its January meeting and tasked the ad hoc committee to seek ccTLD community feedback at and around ICANN73.

Exactly 29 years ago, Croatia got its national domain, thus beginning its formal recognition in the global Internet space. The management of the Croatian national domain is assigned to CARNET by the international organization ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).

The first registered domain was, and there are currently 119878 registered domains. Croatia is the only European country that allows its citizens and legal entities to register free .hr domains. They make up the largest number, almost 70 percent of registered domains.

In addition to free and paid secondary .hr domains, it is possible to register free tertiary domains whose purpose is to achieve a virtual identity of private individuals and paid tertiary domains for marketing activities of private individuals and legal entities from around the world. Registration of all .hr domains is done in accordance with the Ordinance on the organisation and management of the national top-level domain.
