On July 8, 2015 the .so Shared Registry System will be migrated to the Cloud Registry platform and operation will be transferred to the Somali Network Information Center (SONIC).

In conjunction with the move, the Registry will implement new policies that will significantly modify registration eligibility and introduce new restrictions on content and usage.

At the same time, the registry will ramp up abusive use monitoring and enforcement of acceptable use policies.

Ahead of these changes, the registry will halt new registrations indefinitely and increase renewal fees.
