New Internet domain suffixes for Dutch Caribbean islands

The special Dutch entities Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba will be receiving the new Internet domain suffix of .bq (dot bq), the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) reported in its latest newsletter.

ISO is the authority that maintains and issues Internet suffixes. In a newsletter that was issued late last year, ISO had already indicated that the suffix .an (dot an) for the former Netherlands Antilles would be removed.

With the dismantling of the Netherlands Antilles the domain suffix for these islands has also become defunct. Curaçao will receive the suffix .cw (dot cw), while St. Maarten will receive the suffix .sx (dot sx).

Although Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba have become a part of the Netherlands, they will not be included in the suffix for the Netherlands, which is .nl (dot nl).
