.SI represents the official domain extension or the internet country code top level domain (ccTLD) of Slovenia. It was introduced in 1993 and was intended for entities with connection to Slovenia. ARNES is the authorized unit for carrying out its registry, while Marcaria.com is the number one registrar for processing the .SI domain registration. Registration is relaxed and non-restricted.
Aside from usage as Slovenia’s two-letter country code, SI is also used to abbreviate other popular words. SI also stands for: school of information (academe or educational institution), social issues (government), system integration (technology), special intelligence (military), Solomon Islands (location in Australia), shop information (ecommerce), similar interests (online chat), Spokane International (railroad), Sichuan (province in China), and many more!
There is no special process needed to register a .SI domain name, no special action is needed on your end.
