Registrations of .AE domain names have increased by 30 per cent in 2009 with the majority of registrations coming from within Dubai the Telecommunications Regulation Authority reported. However media reports on the number of registrations have not indicated what registrations have increased from and to.
From August 2008 to August 2009, “the number of new registrations increased by 30 per cent compared to the corresponding period the year before,” the TRA said.
The increase follows changes and promotions to encourage more registrations. Customers now have the choice to select their own registrar as well as now being able to register domain names online.
And while it has not impacted on registrations for the above period, the .ae Domain Administration (.aeDA) of the UAE Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) launched a full advertising campaign for .AE domain at the beginning of August 2009.
