2018: Four anniversaries for Austria’s Internet
The Republic of Austria is not the only one celebrating a birthday this year: Austria’s Internet also has many reasons to celebrate. Exactly 30 years ago, the Country Code Top-Level Domain .at was added to the global Domain Name System. In 1998, the Austrian Registry nic.at was founded together with the report centre Stopline. 10 years later, CERT.at (Austria’s Computer Emergency Response Team) was founded.

.at-report 2/2016 - Cyberinsurance
“Insurance delivers peace of mind”: that’s the time-honoured promise that brokers have always used to sell their services. But does this also hold true with the kinds of risk only found in the IT sector?
This was the discussion we had with nic.at registrars at a roundtable meeting a few years ago. When the time came to update our registrar contracts we also decided to take a look at issues of liability and possible claims for damages in the domain business. And we soon saw that standard indemnity insurance policies did not extend to various cyber risks.

.at-report 1/2016 - Short domains
“One, two or three – the choice is yours: you have three blanks to choose from!” There’s hardly an Austrian alive that can’t remember the hit TV show with Michael Schanze. You are probably wondering what that has to do with domains. Particularly as it isn’t even possible to choose between one, two or three, since all .at domains have to have at least three characters – until now, that is!
But like the TV show, that rule is soon to enter the history books: before the year is up, one and two character domains will be available directly under the top level .at domain. This edition of the .at report explains the reasons behind the move and looks at how the launch will play out.
