2021-03-01 A free .lt domain name creation for the incorrect spellers
Are you using an incorrectly spelled .lt domain name? Pick up a gift and create a .lt domain name with specific Lithuanian characters for free!
For the entire month of March 2021 we have a special offer: the owners of an incorrectly spelled .lt domain name (for example, grazus-vardas.lt) can create the same domain with specific Lithuanian characters (for example, gražus-vardas.lt).
The offer of the Internationalized domain names (IDN) with specific letters of the Lithuanian alphabet will be active from 1 to 31 March 2021 (inclusive) under the following conditions:
1. The domain name a registrant wants to create contains letters ą, č, ę, ė, į, š, ų, ū, ž (for example, gražus-vardas.lt) and matches the registrar’s incorrectly spelled domain name (i.e., composed by replacing the Lithuanian letters with the Latin ones, for example, grazus-vardas.lt);
2. The name and surname (in case of a natural person) or the title (in case of a legal entity) of the holder of the domain with an incorrectly spelled name and its corresponding IDN domain have to match completely;
3. The same registrar provides services to the domain holder of the incorrectly spelled domain name and its corresponding IDN domain – domains.lt (Kaunas University of Technology)
4. If both domain names – the incorrectly spelled one and the corresponding IDN – are available, the incorrectly spelled name has to be registered first and an application for the creation of the corresponding IDN domain has to be submitted afterwards.
2021-01-01 The updated website domains.lt is more convenient and informative
The Internet Service Centre at Kaunas University of Technology has updated the website of the activities of the domain registrar https://domains.lt/en/ which provides the services of creation and management of the second-level .lt, .eu, .info, .com, .org, .net domains.
For the convenience of the customers, besides the previously applied payment by bank transfer, the new website has an installed option of payment for the services using the e-banking system popular in Lithuania or payment cards. Since the confirmation of the person’s identity is required, the first payment for the new customers is available via the bank transfer or the e-banking system.
A two-factor authentication option has been installed to increase the safety of the accounts of the domain holders. Even though it is sufficient for the customers to use their login name and password to connect to their account at https://domains.lt/en/, it is recommended to activate an additional two-factor authentication. It would strengthen the security of the customer’s data, increase the protection of the customer’s account against the unauthorised login and guarantee the reliable management of the data associated with this account.

2020-04-15 EURid will be perform additional checks on the registration data of .eu domain names that contain keywords related to COVID-19
In order to protect end-users from possible misuses of domain names associated with the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) emergency, .eu registry EURid has implemented a set of measures in agreement with the European Commission.
EURid will be perform additional checks on the registration data of .eu domain names that contain keywords related to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Registrants of domain names containing detected keywords will be required to validate their data and to submit a statement confirming that their domain name was registered in ‘good faith’ within seven (7) calendar days.
In cases where a new registered or delegated .eu domain name contains keywords related to the current pandemic, and where EURid has been informed or discovered that the domain is resolving into a suspicious website, the above confirmations must be provided within three (3) calendar days.
Failure to take the requested actions from existing registrations within the applicable timeframes, the domain name will be ‘suspended’ in accordance with our standard procedure (i.e. it will remain on the register database, but its services will not function).
