Following the initial outlines suggested by ISOC, the delegation of domains should be a joint work between two institutions and the domain names should be delegated under the second level, that is, the existence of the types .com.py, org.py and others. Thus, in 1995, the Network Information Center - Paraguay, NIC-PY, was founded through an agreement signed between the National Computing Center (CNC) from the National University of Asunción (UNA), a public university in Paraguay, and the Digital Electronics Laboratory (LED) of the Catholic University Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (UCA), a private university in Paraguay.
NIC-PY is the manager and sponsoring organization of the .PY Top Level Domain, being this code of two letters assigned to Paraguay according to ISO 3166-1. These tasks were delegated by IANA and ratified through the Accountability Framework signed between NIC.PY and ICANN, being NIC.PY the entity responsible for maintaining the .PY Top Level Domain.
This service of name delegation is provided jointly by LED and CNC, which are the institutions responsible for managing the ccTLD .PY (Paraguay).
CNC (Technical Contact of ccTLD-PY) is responsible for the administration and operation of DNS servers and LED (Administrative Contact of ccTLD-PY) is responsible for the approval of domain delegation applications.
