Stichting Internet Domeinregistratie Nederland - SIDN is the national manager of the Dutch ccTLD and provides registry services in Netherlands for .nl domains. It is ICANN accredited and is responsible for issuing all Dutch domain names. It has around 1,900 registrars and ISPs operating under it. The .nl domain is considered the world's fourth largest and safest ccTLD, and has over 4 million domain names.[1] However, SIDN has had some issues regarding the implementation of IPv6.[2] ICANN signed the Accountability Framework for the .nl TLD with SIDN in 2007.[3]

In English, SIDN means Netherlands Domain Registration Foundation.[4]
