Added text about EIF
[ Estonian Internet Foundation] operates the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) of Estonia (.ee)

== '''History''' ==
The top-level domain .ee was introduced in 1992 and was operated by [ EENet] until July 2010. The administrator of .ee domain was the academician Endel Lippmaa. There was a limit of one domain name per legal entity, valid registrations were free of charge.

== '''Domain relaunch''' ==
The new order of registration of .ee TLD became available on 5 July 2010. Estonian Internet Foundation took over .ee ccTLD registry functions from EENet. All existing domains registered before the transition had to be re-registered during a 6 month transition period which ended on 5 January 2011. New .ee domain rules allow unlimited number of domains to be registered by a single entity. Private persons can now register domains directly under .ee. Foreign entities can now register .ee domains although all domains must have an administrative contact with residence in Estonia. Domain disputes will be handled by Domain Disputes Committee. Registration services can be done through accredited registrars listed on Estonian Internet Foundation [ website]. Domains can be registered and renewed for one, two or three years. Registration fee for registrars is set to 12 Euros plus tax on 2014.

== Third-level domain names ==
* – companies (incorporated entities) as defined in the Commercial Code.
* – individuals.
* – self-employed people (sole proprietors) as defined in the Commercial Code.
* – medical/health care institutions.
