Ukraine’s ccTLD has maintained what appears to be a healthy level of new registrations, despite the Russian invasion.
The company today reported that between February 24 and March 25, it saw over 3,000 new .ua domain regs, over 2,000 of which were in .com.ua. The ccTLD offers names in a few dozen third-level spaces.
February 24 was the day Russia invaded, and the day Ukraine went into martial law.
“The com.ua domain is mostly used by commercial organizations. Therefore, the presence of registrations shows that Ukrainian business continues to operate under martial law,” Hostmaster wrote (via Google Translate).
.ua had a total of 534,162 domains under all 2LDs today, according to the registry’s web site.
While Hostmaster has not yet published its end-of-month stats for March, it appears that the new adds suggest an improvement on typical monthly performance, or at least business as usual.
The registry has come under denial-of-service attack dozens of times since the war started, but says it has so far continued to operate without interruption.
