Happy holidays

2016 was an important year for the .it Registry with important meetings and events. Two milestones to remember: thirty years since the first Italian internet connection (30 April 1986) and a new record: 3 million domain names. And next year will be full of new anniversaries to celebrate and new work to do. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!”

A record for the Italian web: Italy has passed the three-million-domain-name mark

.it celebrates its three-millionth domain name, which puts it in sixth place among the country code top level domains in the European Union and ninth worldwide. But 33% of micro enterprises still don't have an internet domain. The domain "abbigliamentoludica.it" goes down in .it Registry history as the three-millionth

30 years of the Internet

How the Internet has changed our lives in thirty years and how it will change them in the next thirty: stories of innovators who have used the Web to revolutionize our habits, the space we live in, our social lives and how we interact with culture, information and finance.


The Registry is ready for Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC). DNSSEC ensures the safety and reliability of the information provided by DNS systems (the protocol that makes navigation easier by using names, not numbers). Soon, on the specific test platform, it will be possible to try out the new DNS validation system for .it too. When the test is launched, all Registrars will be informed through their dedicated mailing list and through the Registry’s reserved-access portal.
