3.10.2019 In the month of cybersecurity SK-NIC offers a sales campaign connected with domain protection „DNSSEC your .sk domain!“

We protect virtual Slovakia. That was also the reason why we launched DNSSEC domain protection in April 2019. This service ensures, that Internet traffic is directed to the correct address. Thus it protects your virtual sites – domains from attacks. In this way, we protect almost 8,000 domains to date.

As in the real world, even in this virtual one, we want to protect the values that we care about. Therefore in the month of cybersecurity, we want to increase the number of DNSSEC protected domains. Together with the registrars, we offer a sales campaign connected with the registration and protection of your virtual home.

Order a domain from your registrar or renew an existing one and take advantage of the campaign.

30.9.2019 SK-NIC announces the first call of the SK-NIC Fund

It's finally here! After long negotiations and searching for the right financing model, we have launched a new support mechanism. We are pleased that also the professionals from the Internet community were part of the discussions and the creation of the mechanism. From all the topics that we could support, we have selected two, which we consider being very current. We strongly believe that good projects will apply and together we will contribute to the improvement of the possibilities and the protection of the Internet and the whole digital environment.

The new support mechanism has set strict rules and I believe that we sent a clear signal to the Internet community that the resources in the fund are here to support interesting projects and ideas of young and creative people, Slovak companies and start-ups. I believe that as many projects as possible will be submitted and the Pontis Foundation will choose the best of them,“ said Mr. Jaroslav Kmeť, General Manager of the IT Department of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister of the Slovak Republic for Investments and Informatization (further as „the Office“).

We have allocated 100,000 EURO for the projects. We will provide financial support in the range of 2,500 EURO to 10,000 EURO to the projects, which meet the conditions of the call and will be confirmed by the Office.
