Uninterrupted growth of the renewal rate for two years, the number of registrants for one year - results from the latest report of the .pl domain registry at NASK, summarising the .pl domain name market in the second quarter of 2022.
At the end of the second quarter of 2022, the total number of .pl domain name registrants amounted to 1 116 134 - an increase of 1 019 compared to the previous quarter. Registrants registered 158 605 new names. The upward trend is also visible in the interest in renewing domain names for consecutive years. In the second quarter, the renewal rate reached 73.96%. This is the highest value in almost 14 years.
At the end of June 2022, there were 2 525 465 active names in the .pl domain registry, i.e. 6 688 fewer than in the previous quarter. It is noteworthy that the number of .pl names maintained for registrants based in Ukraine increased by 32% in the second quarter.
The share of new registrations of functional and regional domains increased in the second quarter - the percentage of registrations in functional domains increased to 13.15 % and in regional domains to 3.77 %.
Functional domains allow you to specify your business or activity in more detail, with endings such as .turysytka.pl, .agro.pl or .nieruchomosci.pl to choose from. A list of domains of this type is available at: https://dns.pl/en/list_of_functional_domain_names.
Regional domains, on the other hand, specify the local nature of our business and indicate the region where we run it, such as .bialowieza.pl, .ustka.pl or .podhale.pl. A list of all available regional domains can be found here: https://dns.pl/en/list_of_regional_domain_names.
