The Italian Registry (.it) Registro.it have published their ‘Yearbook 2013’ covering the events of the Registry over 2013. Click to open the Yearbook.
Quarter.it is born, the first quarterly report by .it Registry, with the most important facts
and figures about the domains, projects and events, and the latest news. The Quarter
intends updating the Registrars, in a much shorter time than the data yearbook, with
up-to-date and detailed information.
24th June – Drop time becomes effective; a new procedure that automatically – twice
a day, at 9 am and at 16 pm – deletes domains that are in a state of pendingDelete/
pendingDelete. The real novelty of drop time is the ability to know nearly two days
in advance the names of domains subject to cancellation: the names are listed in the
special lists published in the “drop time” section of Registry’s website.
The new procedure introduces a number of advantages in registering a name .it, also
from a technical point of view, but amongst all of them it turns out to be an absolutely
transparent essential mechanism for deleting domains, even for the end user.
