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.
Up to 2005, rules of registration were quite strict and domain holders would register their domains directly at Arnes. Starting with 4th of april, domain holders could register their domains via system of registrars.
Due to liberalization of .si domain name registration terms, a lot of domains were registered upon this date.
We always take this into account, when 4th is approaching. This year in March, we again noticed about 4200 domains, which were to expire by this date. We wanted to help domain holders in these difficult times, so we have launched an information campaign for our registrars, who have, in turn, informed domain holders of the situation.
A day before the 4th, there was only about 300 non-renewed domains left. Monday morning, upon the 6th, there were a bit more then 200.
This way, we have prevented loss of income to many companies and organizations, which are using .si domain as means of sales as well as communication and marketing.
