Check .lt domain
The scope of cyber incidents and theft online continues growing each year due to the lack of security habits online and insufficient use of security technologies, notes expert Patrick Jones from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
Estonians have almost twice the amount of the internet names per thousand citizens in comparison to Latvians and almost one and a half times more than Lithuanians. Estonians surpass Lithuanians and Latvians according to the number of national .lt, .lv and .ee domains per thousand citizens.
Professor of Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) Stanislovas Masiokas notices that the increasing use of the English language and incorrect spelling when people avoid the use of the specific Lithuanian letters online has become a widely spread fashion that may have a negative effect on the Lithuanian language.
Even though Internet names, emails and text messages can be written with Lithuanian characters, a large part of Lithuanians do not use the correct spelling online. According to the data of the Internet Service Centre DOMREG at Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), only 2 000 or just 1% of almost 200 000 registered .lt domains are the domain names with specific Lithuanian letters.
“If at least half of the entrepreneurs from Jonava registered their domains, had high quality websites or e-shops, used efficient e-marketing tools and consistently developed their trademarks, I am sure we would have stronger business, better export, create more jobs and provide higher salaries”, – says Justas Dieninis, active resident of Jonava and employee of Kaunas University of Technology, to Jonava newspaper “Jonavos garsas”.
The Internet Service Centre DOMREG at Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) informs that the number of .lt domains increased by 2.65% and reached 192 855 in 2018. 35 044 new .lt domains were created in 2018, but 29 568 .lt domains were deleted by their holders.
