If I remember correctly, my father was the first in our area to have a 286 – this meant Windows 3.0, CorelDraw 2.0 and a dot matrix printer. This caught my attention and it was in this way that I came across first text programming languages - Basic and Pascal.

Domain holder under the .si top-level domain is obliged – in accordance with the General Terms and Conditions (GTC) for registration of domain names under the .si top-level domain – to ensure that the registration data is always accurate, complete and current, that the contact email is valid and that the domain holder has exclusive and direct access to it.

Such massive consequences of the pandemic, were surely unexpected by most during the weeks, leading to the announcement of strict safety measures.

Once again, 4th of April has come an passed – an important date for Register .si. This year, this date marks 15-th anniversary of fundamental change of domain registration rules.
While we are making sure all processes of Register.si are running smoothly, we are also aware that current circumstances are affecting your business. Given that many domain holders are at this time facing great challenges, we are trying to come up with ways to aid you and them.
Functioning of websites, e-mail addresses and other functionalities is, in these circumstances, surely even more important then usual.
