June 7, 2014



Project Start: 2006 Project End: March 2016 Project cost: 1 Billion US dollars Project Status: Active Project Phase: Execution Facility Type: Internet Networks In September 2012 Farsi , the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) announced Farsi that it is in the process of completing the first phase of establishing the National Information Network (NIN), also known as Internet-e Paak or the Pure Internet. The NIN as an independent countrywide network whose content is pure and compatible with religious and revolutionary values . The NIN project consists of three major phases. The first phase is the construction of two networks to separate local and international online traffic. By March 2013, which is the planned end of this phase, the NIN will be ready as an independent high-speed network that connects all government organizations and covers all provinces of Iran. In the second phase, to be completed by March 2014, all Iranian websites will be hosted on local servers and registered on .ir domains. Until recently, many government websites were hosted on servers outside of Iran. For example, the website of the Iranian parliament was hosted on servers in the United States. However, the government has since moved many of its websites to Iranian servers and is planning to move the remaining sites within this phase of the project. In the third and final stage, to be completed in March 2016, the government will provide domestically developed applications and services, including the Ghasedak Operating System (OS), Chaapaar email service, and Fajr search engine. Ghasedak OS and Chaapaar email are already available, with the latter claiming to have more than 200,000 users. The government has allocated one billion US dollars for implementation of the NIN.
