-- Blacknight are starting summer off by letting the .CAT out of the bag.
Award winning Irish domain registrar Blacknight (http://www.blacknight.com)
is running a super summer promotion on .CAT domains. The promotion runs on a first come, first served basis as the next 300 .cat domain names to be registered via Blacknight will be available at the discounted price of €9.99. The regular price of a .CAT domain is €29.99.
The special low price is ONLY available for the first year .cat domain name registrations.
.CAT is the Internet extension for the entire Catalan linguistic and cultural community. Only registrants who belong to the Catalan community may apply for .CAT domains. The extension has been in use since 2006.
Michele Neylon of Blacknight states: “We love cool domains and are big supporters of the .CAT extension. The Catalan culture is rich and full of creative uses for domains and running a first come, first served promotion is interesting for us because we get to see the creativity that comes from deciding on a domain name under pressure.”
The main prerequisite to registering a .cat domain is that there is an intention to use Catalan on the website, however, Catalan does not need to be the primary language of the website. There is a 6 month deadline in place by which the website should be using Catalan.
Neylon continues: “We believe that in the not-so-distant future, the Internet will have many more online communities like .CAT. Blacknight are committed to fostering an environment that can help such online communities thrive.”
