On the World Internet Day, DNS.PT reaches 44,782 new .PT domains, having regard only to 2018. The first quarter of 2018 was the best ever.

April also presented one of the best results of the last years, with a mark of 9,010 new .pt domains.

According to Luisa Gueifão, Chairman of the DNS.PT Association's Board of Directors, the results show the commitment of the Association DNS.PT in the management, maintenance and registration of the national top-level domain. "Since Associação DNS.PT assumed the role of the Portuguese ccTLD registry, .PT has been one of the three fastest growing domains in Europe. Last year the growth was 12% compared to the European scenario of 4%, so the good performance and experience makes DNS.PT a reference that serves as a model and inspiration for many other European countries". 

Luisa Gueifão also highlights the role that Association DNS.PT has been playing in the promotion of the Internet and the digital economy in Portugal. "Our focus is increasingly directed to digital skills programs. We have created and supported numerous projects that contribute to the increase of the digital literacy levels and to combat info-exclusion and digital divide. It is fundamental to think about the Internet without forgetting the people".

Currently, .PT has more than 1.1 million registered domains and for this growth has contributed an associative and multiparticipated governance model - the State, consumers, registrars and academy -, which allows a more efficient, flexible and inclusive management of the Internet community in Portugal. On the other hand, users have also shown a greater preference for .PT.
