Changes to release of .ee domains
The bidding information in the .ee auction environment will not be made public. Auctions are in the form of a blind auction, where bidders cannot see other offers.
The auction portal service can be used by anyone that has opened a user account. Everyone in the environment has equal opportunities to acquire a domain registration priority.
You can read more about the terms and conditions of the auction portal here, and information on how to create a user account and conduct an auction is available here.

If the sixth Internet Day, which was to take place in March last year, was not held due to the pandemic, then this year, the event will take place via a secure live broadcast.
