HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam developed 70,900 national domain names (.vn) in the first quarter of this year, equivalent to 393 domain names per day.
The number of national domain names (.vn) has annually increased by more than 10 per cent over the past four years, reported the Việt Nam Internet Network Information Centre (VNNIC).
According to VNNIC statistics, domain names which have a high rate of use include “gov.vn” (81.31 per cent), “edu.vn” (74.48 per cent) and “org.vn” (68.92 per cent).
The proportion of domain name users was 54 per cent organisations and 46 per cent individuals last year, while that of 2012 is 63 per cent and 37 per cent.
According to VNNIC, the gap of registration and use of international and national domain names in Việt Nam was gradually narrowed.
The rate of using national domain names (.vn) and international domain names currently is about 50 - 50.
Việt Nam has consistently been among the countries with the highest rate of registration and use of country-code top-level domains (ccTLD) in the ASEAN region and among top 10 in Asia since 2011.
According to VNNIC, domain name (.vn) fees are changing to compete with international domain names. In addition, official permission to transfer domain names (.vn) has supported small businesses and newly-established enterprises.
Using national domain names helps these enterprises increase their socio-economic efficiency in terms of state management, information and state budget collection towards domain names (.vn). — VNS
