On September 15, 2020, the general availbility (GA) of the .ar domain (Argentina) has finally started. Normally it would have started on February 27th. Payment issues with landrush applications and Covid-19 threw a spanner in the works, postponing the GA’s release indefinitely.
Last year we celebrated our 20th anniversary and this year we celebrate another milestone! In September 2005, Stefan began bNamed.net adventure. So that means that he has been with us for 15 years and has been taking care of the back-end of our website for 15 years!
Thank you Stefan! On to the next 15 years 🙂
DNSLU (the .lu registry) has announced that they will soon release 1 and 2 character .lu names. As a result, all the following names will become available: 1.lu, rd.lu, bp.lu, hp.lu, ék.lu, … The only names that you will not be able to register are lu.lu and ns.lu . The release will happen in 3 phases.
A while ago, the SIDN (.nl registry) passed the 6 million domain name registrations. And obviously they are quite proud of that.
The .us domain is the extension for the United States but offers so much more possibilities. Of course it’s the perfect extension to make sure everyone in the USA is aware of what you’re doing. But what about the other options?
It’s time to celebrate! The .co extension was released 10 years ago. And what a journey it has been. Once starting with only 28.000 registered .co domain names and now over 2,2 million domains under .co extension worldwide. So what’s so interesting about it?
On February 1, 2020 the United Kingdom has left the European Union. Until December 31, 2020 the UK and the EU have entered a so called ‘transition period’. During this transition period UK citizens and residents can still register domain names under the .eu domain. However this will change from January 1, 2021.
