Internet addresses space: Poland on 5th place in EU

Poland has reached the 6th position in Europe and the 5th position in European Union in the ranking of the country code (national) Top Level domain names (ccTLD).

As of December 1st, 2008, NASK with 1.289.763 domain names had 1505 more addresses than AFNIC, French ccTLD Registry.

Top 6 ccTLD registries in Europe are as follows: Germany with over 12 million names, UK with over 7 million names, Netherlands with more than 3 million names, Russia with 1.750 million names and finally Italy with slightly more than 1.5 million names. It's worth to mention that on May 6th, 2008 NASK celebrated registration of 1.000.000th domain name. Since than we managed to overtake a few ccTLDs including CIRA (.ca domains) and SWITCH (.ch domains). For more statistics click here.

Such impressive result is due to the 70% growth of .pl names Y2Y and stable 72.5% renewal rate Y2Y. Such high growth rate NASK managed to achieve by reducing registration/renewal prices and introduction of the new services.
The new services are like:

* Domain Name Tasting
* Wait List Service
* publication of the list of expired names
* exact expiration time in WHOIS
* NX DOMAINs list
* and more...

Of course the role of our Partners (Registrars) is fundamental and NASK could do nothing without Home, NetArt, AZ.PL and many more...
