About .info domains

The .info internet domain was launched in 2001 along with six other extensions, but it developed the fastest. The first domain to be registered was afilias.info in June 2001, and in the first four months it reached 500,000 registrations (it had already passed 1 million by the following year).

As the name suggests, the .info domain refers to information and is dedicated to sites that help people find out everything they need to know about certain topics, such as a public transport timetable (indianrailways.info, new.mta.info) or a tourist guide to a country or city (austria.info, brussels.info).

The name of the extension is easily understood internationally, which has contributed to its popularity. Today there are around 6 million .info domain names.

It was the first Internet domain to have no registration restrictions and is still chosen by sites in all spheres of activity, from education to tourism.

At the beginning of 2008, Spanish characters were also accepted, a major advantage for Spanish speakers.

Popular .info domains: worldometers.info, irights.info, santaclausvillage.info, glutenfreehelp.info. We also mention some sites in our country: afir.info, arieseni.info and educatiefinanciara.info.
