Introduction of short domains completed
With 6.12.2016 12.00 am CET we have completed the introduction of short domains which means that one and two character .at domains can now be registered and accessed like any other domain following the nic.at registration guidelines and the first come first served principle.
We would like to thank our partners who helped us in making this introduction a success.
Domain holder who have obtained a short domain during sunrise period or during the public auction can find some more details in our.
- Who is nic.at?
nic.at is the registration and administration office for all domains ending with .at. A .at-domain only becomes operational and available on the internet if it is registered with nic.at.
- What are the duties of nic.at and an ISP?
An ISP offers different internet services, like webspace, domain hosting, e-mail addresses, web-design etc. By entering the domain in his nameservers, he provides the technical requirements for a domain. However, a domain only becomes operational and available on the internet if it is registered with the registry nic.at. Thus, the ISP acts as an intermediary betwenn the domain holder and nic.at.
