CoCCA is an acronym for Council of County Code Administrators, CoCCA is an internet infrastructure support company established in 2004 by a consortium of ccTLD managers. The registry software we author and maintain is the most widely deployed ccTLD registry solution in the industry. The CoCCA SRS is used to manage 54 ccTLDs and 6 gTLDs

The CoCCA software may be hosted or downloaded and installed locally, optional commercial support is available.

CoCCA provides TLD managers who purchase commercial support with training, hosting, data escrow, failover, disaster recovery and complaint resolution services.


A dozen ccTLDs have adopted the CoCCA AUP - based policy framework. This framework addresses not only rights to a particular text string ( domain ) but the registrant's use of that string. Policies apply recursively, and are applicable not only to the domains in the registry but apply equally to any subordinate domain created by the registrant.

The registrants licence to use a domain requires that they comply with the applicable AUP, a failure to comply with the AUP or to remedy a breach of the AUP may result in a suspension of a domain and it's removal from the zone.

The CoCCA Complaint Resolution Service ( CRS ) supports registry - level suspensions and consists of three parts ( 1. initial review, 2. referal to Ombudsman for amicable complaint resolution, 3. binding arbitration. ). Overview |  AUP Form

Lodging a complaint and amicable complaint resolution are free services. Binding arbitration is carried out by external experts and is a fee-based service ( normally applicable to resolution of complex intellectual property issues ).
