The following registry services are offered by the .MTR registry:

A. Receipt of data from registrars concerning registration of domain names and name servers.
The registry will use a Shared Registration System (SRS) to provide two interfaces to receive data concerning registration of domain name and name servers from registrars. One interface is the web application and the other is the EPP. This service will be provided over both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

B. Dissemination of TLD zone files.
The registry will provide the DNS by operating the domain name servers. The servers will host the TLD zone files. Registered domain names records will be provisioned into the TLD zone files. Updates on the TLD zone files in the primary name servers will be propagated to the TLD zone files in the secondary and anycast name servers according to schedules and time intervals applicable to different types of transactions. The domain name servers will be accessible by Internet users to provide domain name resolution. This service will be provided over both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

C. Dissemination of contact or other information concerning domain name
Command line (port-43) and Web base WHOIS service will be both provided by the registry. Internet users could submit WHOIS query to these WHOIS servers and obtain the result. This service will be provided over both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

D. DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC).
The registry will signed the .MTR zone using DNSSEC standards. Internet users will be able authenticate and ensure the integrity of the .MTR DNS resolution result. This service will be provided over both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

The .MTR registry does not plan to offer Internationalised Domain Names registration initially.
