Dot TK is a joint venture of the Government of Tokelau, a country in the South Pacific, the countries communication company Teletok and BV Dot TK, a privately held company. The Government of Tokelau has appointed BV Dot TK as the exclusive registration entity. BV Dot TK is doing business as the Dot TK Registry.
The Dot TK Registry is privately funded and has offices in Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Douglas (Isle of Man). With its management team, an experienced staff, multi-redundant backbones in all the countries and DNS root-servers located in every corner of the world, Dot TK can handle millions of registrations.
The Dot TK Registry acknowledges Dot TK can have a big social impact on the lives of the people in Tokelau. The primary goal for both Teletok and the Dot TK Registry is to increase the awareness of Tokelau in the world, establishing relationships with larger corporations who can provide communication, education and medical expertise to the region and directly fund the island of Tokelau with royalty fees paid over domain names sold. This way the Government of Tokelau can grow towards a more financially independent situation.
The mission of the Dot TK Registry is to create a network of individuals, and companies that have an existing Internet presence and have these users register a Dot TK domain name to provide a free, short, easy and secure alternative name for their Internet identity; where the proceeds of the Dot TK Registry goes partly towards development projects on the Islands of Tokelau.
TK is growing exponentially to become the largest and safest country code domain in 2012
