The Asia Pacific Top Level Domain Association (APTLD) is an organisation that brings together registries of country code top level domains (ccTLDs) in the Asia Pacific region.

The aim of the association is to act as a space where ccTLD registries can cooperate and exchange information on domain names related technological and operational issues. It also acts as an interface with other organisations in the Internet governance ecosystem and it works to strengthen the participation of Asia Pacific ccTLD registries in global Internet policy making process and discussions spaces (such as the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers – ICANN and the Internet Governance Forum – IGF). 

APTLD is also involved in capacity building activities, as it provides training on issues such as: registry operations, DNSSEC, IPv6, and attack and contingency response planning.
