At the end of June 2017 the number of names, active in the .pl registry, amounted to 2.64 million. Thus, it could not do without a slight fall as compared to the previous quarter. Worthy of note is the fact that the number of registrants increased by over 3.6 thousand, amounting, in the second quarter, to 1.03 million.
Since the moment of launching DNSSEC in the .pl registry the number of names, secured with that protocol, has been systematically increasing to reach 36 186 at the end of June. As compared to the previous quarter, the number of secured names increased by almost 7%. An upward trend may be observed and it denotes that registrants pay more and more attention to the security of their domain names and use available solutions to protect them.
Alongside the issuing of the report on Q2 2017, we would also like to mention that NASK was one of the initiators of founding the Court of Arbitration for the Internet Domain Names at the Polish Chamber of Information Technology and Telecommunication. The Court has already examined more than one thousand cases of disputes on .pl domain names. More interesting details on this subject may be found in the interview with Mr. Ireneusz Matusiak, President of the Court of Arbitration for the Internet Domain Names. The interview Who wins disputes on domain names? provides information on what the Court of Arbitration is, what its functions are, what the arbitration is, how a legal proceeding is conducted and what the court fees are.
