Tap into the magical beauty of Ascension Island

Have you ever heard of Ascension Island? It is one of the smallest and most beautiful regions of the British Overseas Territory, located in the South Atlantic Ocean, about 1,000 miles from the coast of Africa. To be precise, it is a part of the island of Saint Helena and the archipelago of Tristan da Cunha.

.AC has been assigned as ccTLD to this island which is spread over 88 km2 (34 sq mi) in 1997. Isn’t it hard to believe that the population here is just 806? [2016 census]

Given these facts, it will be a surprise to know that Ascension constitutes an independent part of the Commonwealth.

If we get outside the boundary of Ascension Island, .AC has also been accepted by many businesses in Aachen, Germany and Acre, Brazil.

If you first thought that .AC is all about academia, then you were not wrong. Netizens have also used .AC considering it a short version of Academics. Therefore, even if you don’t live in these regions, you can still use it for your educational stuff.

You can register second-level domains with .AC. However, unless you are an inhabitant, you cannot register its third-level domains.
