==Background==
 +
TM Domain Registry was founded in 1997 and the company took over the operations of the .tm ccTLD after a four year hiatus when the former registry Netnames stopped receiving applications from registrants due to overwhelming demands and unable to provide the necessary services for its customers.<ref>[http://www.zdnet.com.au/tm-domain-back-on-the-market-120272805.htm zdnet.com.au]</ref>

The Ministry of Communication in Turkmenistan who also serves as director for Turkmen section of the Internet Society ([[ISOC]]-ndr) chose Nic.tm to revive the .tm cctld to be able to protect the interest of domain name owners of .tm ccTLD.<ref>[http://www.domaines.info/interview.php?inter_id=12&PHPSESSID=e55b949add4791747f6ccd6f13734e4 domaines.info]</ref>
