Norwegians register domain names like never before

From March to August this year, we have had a marked increase in the number of new domain names compared with 2019 and 2018. There are many indications that the growth can be attributed to the corona situation, which is also confirmed by our partners.

Domain scammers are at it again

The method is the same as before: They offer domain names that look relevant for the company, and say that these names are in great demand so you must hurry up or risk trouble. Our advice: Check who is contacting you, carefully consider your real needs for domain names, then contact your registrar.

Operations and load remain regular

Business as usual is not normally considered to be newsworthy. However, considering the situation in Norway and the rest of the world has dealt with over the last few months, a report on normal operations is both important and good news.

Scammers know how to exploit a crisis

In the current state of emergency, scammers work to make a profit. They may try to make profit of the virus spread itself, or they may try to exploit that many of us feel anxious and take less caution than we usually do. Working from a home office can make us even more vulnerable.

Domain registration remains normal

Despite the fact that nothing is normal these days, the registration figures for Norwegian domain names remain normal. Other activity in the registry service also remains regular. Our daily operations continue undisturbed.

Get the domain name before going public with the company name

When founding or renaming a company, it is important not to stumble in the step-by-step order of registration. A good domain name for the company is often the bottleneck. Everyone must have a domain name, but domain names are unique, and if it’s taken, then it's taken. Then you may have to settle for second best, or at worst you have to start the naming process from scratch.
