20.1.2020 SK-NIC has launched another advantageous campaign for domain registration

SK-NIC started year 2020 with the launch of the domain scanning technology for presence of CDS records called CDS scanning. Thus, Slovakia became ranked as third among the countries using this technology.

With this technological novelty we launched activities, which should support the successful story of the most beautiful .sk ending also in 2020.

For this year to be really successful, we have prepared a 4 Days For 4 EUR campaign on the occasion of exceeding 400,000 domains.

8.1.2020 SK-NIC has launched a technological innovation as the third country in Europe!

On January 1st 2020 SK-NIC, a.s. - .sk Domain Registry launched a new additional service for DNSSEC called CDS scanning.

The first scanning identified more than 5000 domains, which have been added to the domains secured with DNSSEC, thus increasing the number of secure domains with the most beautiful .sk extension to more than 125,000!

Since the launch of DNSSEC on April 2019, Slovakia became a part of a group of leaders in the share of domains secured with this higher standard. Currently we have secured more than 30% of all .sk domains, and that is great! In 2020 we want to continue raising the security standard of the provided services and thus contribute to higher security of virtual Slovakia.
