As of today, registration/renewal is 200,000 Guarani = $32.71 at interbank
Foreign entities (but perhaps not individuals) can apply via a local
representative or at least a local billing agent (such as on NIC_PY's ISP
list) . I have the impression (but am not sure) that names would actually
be website.com.py (or .org.py for a nonprofit). Names can be rejected for
reasons like belonging to someone else. A DNS (or DNSes) must be specified
to indicate intention to use the name rather than just 'park' it. A
justification more specific than 'website' must be included and will be
read and judged.
Inquiries can be sent to dnsadmin at nic.py . I don't know how they would
respond to the idea of punning .py.
