PT_ccTLD_logoBy the end of 2017 there were 976,370 .pt domain names registered, an increase of 100,891 in the year, the Portuguese ccTLD Registry Association DNS.PT announced yesterday.

The Portuguese country code top level domain has been growing more than the European average in recent years, always in the top 5 European countries for growth, according to CENTR statistics. In the first quarter of 2017, .pt was the fastest growing ccTLD.

Part of the reason for the growth the Association DNS.PT attributes to an inclusive and multi-stakeholder governance model that allows a more efficient, flexible and inclusive management of the various stakeholders.
