Check .lt domain
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.
The Internet Service Centre DOMREG at Kaunas University of Technology has updated its website http://domreg.lt. The updated website is more convenient for the visitors, provides more information and better representation of .lt domain and the registry’s activities.
With increasing number of the cyberattacks, the most vulnerable remain the users who are not concerned about the safety online, warns Dave Piscitello, Senior Security Technologist and Vice-President for Safety and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) at the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). According to the expert, the viruses distributed with spam, as well as website forgery remain the biggest issues of cyber safety faced by the web surfers.
