Increased interest in domains identified with education and religion
In the first quarter of 2020, there was an increase in interest in domains identified with education (edu.pl, szkola.pl) and religion (rel.pl). The number of registrations in the hitherto unpopular "rel.pl" domain increased as many as 38 times in comparison to the previous quarter.
Within the frames of intensive activities in the area of cybersecurity, the .pl domain Registry implemented in its systems a new method of handling the DNSSEC protocol. Thanks to the introduced changes, the time of signing and validating zones is now 9 times faster than in the previously used solution.
In the first quarter of 2020, 196 124 .pl domain names were registered, by over 7 thousand more than in the previous quarter. The daily average number of registrations was 2155 names.
