Despite the Russian invasion, Ukraine’s country-code top-level domain (ccTLD) has maintained what seems to be a healthy level of new registrations.
The business has now announced that between the 24th of February and the 25th of March, it received over 3,000 new registrations for.ua domains, of which more than 2,000 were for.com.ua. The country code top-level domain (ccTLD) makes available names in a few dozen third-level spaces.
The invasion by Russia took place on February 24, and it was also the day that Ukraine declared a state of martial law.
“The com.ua domain is almost exclusively utilized by companies and businesses. As a result, the existence of registrations demonstrates that Ukrainian business continues to function under the confines of martial rule, as stated by Hostmaster (via Google Translate).
According to the information shown on the website of the registrar, .ua currently hosts a total of 534,162 domains across all 2LDs.
Even though Hostmaster has not yet revealed its end-of-the-month statistics for March, it would appear that the recent additions indicate an improvement on regular monthly performance, or at the very least a continuation of business as usual.
Since the beginning of the conflict, the register has been the target of dozens of denial-of-service attacks; yet, according to reports, it has continued to function normally thus far despite these attacks.
