I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.
What we do. Every page goes through several hundred of perfecting techniques; in live mode. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

.al is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Albania. It is administered by the Electronic and Postal Communications Authority of Albania (AKEP).

AKEP recommends that .al domain registrations be performed with one of the AKEP accredited registrars.[1] There are also international registrars that resell .al domains.[2] Domain names should be between 2 and 63 characters. Although the Albanian language has a number of special characters, the registry has not enabled the use of IDN characters.

2nd level registrations

In the past, registrations were not permitted directly at the second level, but a few existing names were "grandfathered"; they were uniti.al, tirana.al, soros.al, upt.al and inima.al.[citation needed]

In 2012 registrars started to resell .al domain names widely making them popular outside Albania as domain hacks.[citation needed]

In November 2014 the registry released two character domain names allowing for free landrush.[citation needed]

3rd level registrations

Registrations used to be only beneath the second-levels, i.e., .com.al, .net.al, .org.al, and .edu.al labeled appropriately for the type of organisation, but many now exist directly below .al.[citation needed]

Whois servers

The .al zone has never provided whois service due to privacy concerns.[3]
