Everyone who wants to use the mail and wants his/her mail address in a following form [my_name]@[my_firm].sk, must register his/her domain. Registration of a domain of second level performs EuroWeb Slovakia, JSC (Eunet Slovakia Ltd. before).
If you want to register your domain under other domain of the top level such as .sk, contact the administrator of the certain top level domain.
In Internet, there is a special domain IN-ADDR.ARPA to map over IP addresses and domain names. The administrator of this domain is rs.internic.net. The map over through IN-ADDR.ARPA is used for checking the domain name in terms of some Internet services (e.g. some anonymous FTP servers but other services, too).
If you are interested in registering your reverse domain, ask for it on the e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
