ANNOUNCEMENT: Domain Regulation changes are postponed
.ee Domain Regulation and Registrar Contract Annex 1 changes approved by the EIF Council's April 17 2015 decision, that were to enter into force on 1st of July, will be postponed. This reason for postponing is the delay in ongoing registry system development. We will announce and publish on our website the new enforcement date on June 22, at the latest.We draw the registrars attention that the changes to Registrar Contract and its annexes 2 and 4 will still enter into force on July 1st, 2015.
From time to time, we receive feedback from domain owners that, to their dismay, one or another .ee domain is either about to be deleted or has already been deleted and put up for auction. At the same time, there is a clear procedure in place to prevent such cases on the sides of the registrar, the registry, and the registrant. That is what we are discussing.
During 13–16 September the annual European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC) will take place in Vienna, aiming to connect young IT talents with companies and organisations in the field. Once again, the Estonian national team, which was put together through preliminary rounds and a training camp, will take part in the competition. The main sponsor of the qualification event and the ESCS team is the Estonian Internet Foundation, and the project is run by the TalTech Centre for Digital Forensics and Cyber Security.
We are delighted to share a news story that is round and fortified with several zeros; namely, there are already more than 150,000 top-level Estonian domains in the world or Internet addresses ending in .ee.
