Key-Systems, one of the biggest domain registrars worldwide, now offers the domain ending .KR to registrants. Additionally to the Second Level, costumers can register the Third Level Domains CO.KR, OR.KR, NE.KR, RE.KR, SEOUL.KR and PE.KR.

'With the .KR we further extend our portfolio of Asian domains. For domain investors South Korea opens up an interesting market', says Alexander Siffrin, CEO of Key-Systems.
