Registration of domains in Estonia reached the level of Finland

At the beginning of 2012 the per capita number of registration of the .EE domains in Estonia reached the level of registration of the Finnish national domain .FI, i.e. per 1,000 residents both countries use 50 national domains.
As regards the number of registration of domains, in 2011 Estonia overcame Latvia and Lithuania where the same number is 43, reported the Estonian Internet Foundation.

“Statistics show that changes thanks to which each private or legal person is free to register an adequate amount of the required domain names have been accepted well,” said Marek-Andres Kauts, Chairman of the Board of the Estonian Internet Foundation. “The quantity of registered domains also allowed the domain registration fee to be reduced and the trend will also have a positive impact on the fee in the future, which should again give a push to the registration activity.”

“We could certainly make our best efforts in order for each person in Estonia who is an active user of e-mail and the Internet to have their own .ee domain in the future,” said Kauts.

The Estonian Internet Foundation is the organisation founded by the Government of the Republic of Estonia and the Estonian Association of Information Technology and Telecommunications with the purpose of management of Estonian top-level domains (.ee) and the corresponding infrastructure.
