Welcome to SK-NIC,
Dedicated to the management of the top level .SK Internet domain that is reserved for the Slovak Internet. .SK was created in 1993 and is managed by SK-NIC, a.s. (Formerly EuroWeb Slovakia a.s. and EUnet Slovakia s.r.o.)

The call for large projects 2022 is closed!

The call of the SK-NIC Fund was interesting! Projects registration to SK-NIC 2022 Fund Call for Large Projects was closed on May, 31. The amount requested by the applicants exceeded the amount allocated for this call several times. This only confirms the need to continue to support projects that develop virtual Slovakia with various good ideas.

Since 2019, when the new mechanism of the SK-NIC Fund started, the fund has supported projects with a total amount of EUR 600,000. With this challenge, the amount increased to a beautiful 900,000 EUR.

Let us also recall that support already existed before the new project selection and approval mechanism. In this context, we are pleased that many supported projects are still active after many years (the first support was provided in 2008) and have found their place in our beautiful real and virtual Slovakia – e.g. Junior Internet competition, charity crowdfunding portal ludialudom.sk or testing of digital skills at schools IT Fitness Test.

For projects implemented from the SK-NIC Fund, we have created a special presentation space on the Virtualnô portal, where you can learn everything interesting about them.

First Statistics of the Call for Large Projects 2022

The SK-NIC Fund Call for Large Projects 2022, which we announced on March 15, 2022, was open until May 31, 2022. By the deadline, 53 applications were received from various civic associations, non-profit organizations, local governments, schools, individuals and municipalities, from all over Slovakia!

The call covered these topics:

  1. Projects supporting the safety of children in a virtual space, with up to 64% of applications submitted in this topic.
  2. Projects supporting ICT transport (E-transport). Projects with this topic make up 15% of the total number of applications. 
  3. Digital hygiene projects for adults. These make up 21% of the total number of applications submitted.

Project monitoring and evaluation will take place in the coming weeks. The approval of the winning projects is expected at the end of the summer. The winners will be able to start implementing their projects later this year. It should also be noted that projects under this call will be supported from € 10,000 to € 30,000 and may take up to two years to implement.

All necessary information about this and future challenges can be found on our Virtualno website or on the Pontis Foundation website. We are already looking forward to the winning projects that we will be able to support and at the same time we announce that another challenge should follow immediately after the conclusion of this one, in the autumn 2022!

May – The Time of Love

Up to 85% of Slovak businessmen choose the suffix .sk as their primary address for online business. That’s great news.

We at SK-NIC believe that online shopping is now a must-have for any business. But we also know that a good name sells. This is true in both the real and virtual worlds. Therefore, we are also happy to start a business with a well-remembered name in the real and virtual world.

When you start a business, expand or bring a new product or service to market, always register a business with that name right away. It may be occupied later, but it may become increasingly common for you to be „blown away“ by competitors, which is a far worse alternative.

And for an even easier entry into the virtual world there is an special event for registration of domains with the most beautiful domain suffix .sk!

What do we offer in the May event?

During 7 days from 16 to 22 May 2022 (included), the price of a new domain registration will be 5 EUR without VAT. Spread this good news further!

We believe that together we will once again be able to offer to anyone, who is considering a business start through the virtual world or an online business expansion, a good reason to register a new domain.

Finding out if a domain is free, easy and it costs you practically only one lunch to register. Find your domain and see tips from our Academy of Virtual Slovakia.
