38,000 Domain Names Released Following Estonian Domain Reform
On April 6, 2011, the Estonian Internet Foundation (EIF), the official registry of Estonian .ee country code top-level domain (ccTLD), released 38,000 domain names that had been registered in accordance with the old procedure but were not re-registered by the deadline of April 5, 2011 following the new domain system rules.
Approximately 1,200 of the released domain names were re-registered in the first 15 minutes after they became inactive. The EIF informed that the registration of the domain names that had been released would be on a first-come, first-served basis.
According to the EIF data, on March 30, 2011, the number of .ee domains registered according to the new procedure exceeded 55,000, which means that 13,805 new domains have been registered and 41,219 old domains have been re-registered since the new domain rules entered into force in July 2010.
