Libyan Websites

The following list of Libya websites (web sites) is carefully selected and thoroughly checked. All links were active and lead to the intended addresses at the time of publishing. The following list includes a list of Libyan government websites, a list of Libyan telecommunication websites, a list of Libyan oil companies, a list of Libyan business websites, a list of Libyan media and news websites, a list of Libyan hotels, and a short general list of various Libyan websites. Please note that due to the recent events in Libya many of the older links were removed from these lists. The following lists will be updated as sites return to normality under the new government. Temehu.com shall not be held responsible for any external content.


Government Websites

Please note that due to the chaos imposed on Libya there are three governments in the country:- the official and legitimate government of the House of Representatives (the HoR), which was elected on the 25th of June 2014; the so-called National Salvation government imposed by the defunct GNC (which has refused to recognise the elected HoR, allegedly due to incomplete procedure of handing-over power from the GNC to the HoR); and the UN-imposed  GNA, which was initially proposed by the UN to reconcile the two aforementioned governments before it was imposed on the 17th of December 2015, despite the fact that the people of Libya have already elected the HoR to run the country.  This means that the government websites are being contested by the three governments, with Tripoli's government(s) having control over both: .gov and .ly domains.


1- Official Websites of The UN-Imposed Government of National Accord (GNA)

GNA: the Government of National Accord (حكومة الوفاق الوطني) started its online activity via Facebook. The following URL appears to have been created on the 5th of January 2016:

Then on the 7th of April 2016 the website of the self-appointed GNC Government, the PMO's website, was taken over by the GNA's media department, followed by the creation of further Facebook pages for the Presidency Council and the High Council of State, as listed below:



2- Official Websites of The Elected Government of Libya (HoR)

  • HoR: House of Representatives (مجلس النواب): http://www.hor.ly/ - the website went offline after the military takeover of Tripoli by the Libya Dawn militia group. This is probably due to the fact that the domain authority responsible for .ly domains is located in Tripoli. This took place around October 2014.  

  • HoR: http://www.libyan-parliament.org/   : this second HoR website appeared online around February 2015. The fact that the site does not have a .gov domain confirms that the HoR has no access to the domain authority in Tripoli.

  • Prime Minister's Office (رئاسة مجلس الوزراء  -  الحكومة الليبية المؤقتة): http://www.pm-ly.com/  (inoperational).
  • Prime Minister's Office (رئاسة مجلس الوزراء  -  الحكومة الليبية المؤقت): http://lytgov.com/

3- The Websites of The Defunct Government of Libya (GNC)

The GNC's websites: please note that many of  the following ministries do not represent the official government of Libya despite having .gov domains. These websites were taken over by the  GNC's so-called "national salvation government" around September and October 2014, shortly after taking over the capital Tripoli after refusing to recognise the legitimacy of the elected and internationally-recognised House of Representatives (HoR).  

  • GNC: The General National Conference (المؤتمر الوطني العام): http://gnc.gov.ly/

5- The Websites of The Self-Appointed National Transitional Council (NTC)

The following is a list of websites created by the NTC (the National Transitional Council) during the bombing campaign of Libya and after the premature liberation of  some parts of Libya. Please note that the sites have disappeared after the NTC was dissolved, and that the current domain names link to sites that are not related to the original NTC; probably because the domain names had been registered by somebody else after they had expired. Therefore the domains in the following list are linked to the archived pages at archive.org .



Libyan Media & News Websites

  • LANA (وال) :

    There are two LANA agencies in Libya (as a result of Libya ending up with two governments):

    1) - Tripoli: Libyan News Agency - وكالة الانباء الليبية - www.lana-news.ly   (previously known as JANA). This agency is no longer reporting the way it did before the military takeover of the capital Tripoli by Libya Dawn militia - that is before the election of the HoR.

    2) - Benghazi: Libyan News Agency - وكالة الانباء الليبية - www.lananews.com/ar/: as a result of being exiled to Tobruk the HoR (the elected government of Libya) had announced on the 27th of October 2014 to establish a second LANA agency in Benghazi to represent the official government of Libya.
