Sites with the .pt domain grew 22.9% in 2020, resulting in more than 96 thousand new registrations.
The .PT, responsible for the management of the Portuguese top-level domain .pt, explains that growth compared to 2019 translates into another 18 thousand registrations, a record value for the company.
In the first half of 2020, almost 50 thousand new direct registrations were registered in .pt, 10,423 more than in the same period last year, which corresponds to an increase of 26.35%. April was the one with the highest growth compared to the previous year – 67% -, as well as the largest number of new domains.
According to data from .PT, summer, the period of the year in which the number of registrations traditionally slows down, maintained a growth trend. The months of June, July, August and September accounted for more than 30 thousand new direct registrations, an increase over the 23 thousand of the previous year.
The company says that the reinforcement of the measures to combat the pandemic announced by the Government in October again contributed to the increase in the number of registrations, mainly in November, the second highest, with a total of 9082 domains.
