VCS (Pty) Ltd is the sponsoring organization for the .SC Country Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) in Seychelles.
A registry operator, sometimes called a network information center (NIC) maintains all administrative data of the domain and generates a zone file which contains the addresses of the nameservers for each domain. Each registry is an organization that manages the registration of domain names within the domains for which it is responsible, controls the policies of domain name allocation, and technically operates its domain. It may also fulfill the function of a domain name registrar or may delegate that function to other entities.
