.sc is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Seychelles. The TLD was marketed to businesses in Scotland and the U.S. state of South Carolina, however, the domains are subject to Seychelles registry rules. While SCregistrars, a company who marketed .sc domains to a target audience of Scottish sites, has since closed down[1] the .sc extension remains available through the Afilias Global platform via various well-known registrars internationally for direct registration at second-level.

Third-level domains

  • com.sc: commercial, for-profit organizations
  • net.sc: network infrastructure machines and organizations
  • edu.sc: educational institutions
  • gov.sc: governmental institutions
  • org.sc: miscellaneous, usually non-profit, organizations
