The country code top level domain (ccTLD) .FO is assigned to the Faroe Islands. The TLD is not restricted for use, although there are trademark restrictions. You can't get the domain Marlboro.FO, for example, without the trademark holder having an opportunity to take the domain away without compensation. There are no requirements for a connection to the country itself and is available for use worldwide.

There are no officially configured second-level subdomains. While originally controlled by the Dutch, the ccTLD system was transferred to the island government as a gesture of good will. The registry is located at http://www.nic.fo.

The .FO ccTLD has been activated by FO Council, the current sponsor and registrar, and has been available since 1993. There is an assumed connection to the country.
