Dot MX – Mexican domain names registry reached 250K registrations.
NIC Mexico (Network Information Center México), the registry and administrators of the .MX cctTLD, is announcing that on April 28th, 250,000 .MX domain name registrations have been reached.
This new threshhold turns out to be highly promising for the increasing use of .MX domain names, given the accelerated behavior of registration in the last years; and considering also its 24% annual growing rate. It took 15 years to get the first 100,000 .MX domain registrations, and only two and a half years to add another 100,000. Therefore, reaching the amount of 250,000 .MX domains in just a single year is very satisfying for NIC México and they expect a much shorter waiting period to register next 100,000 .MX domain names.
Undoubtedly, these encouraging numbers draw attention to the fact that .MX domains are winning mind share in the domain name industry. This is due to a variety of reasons, including NIC México’s daily effort to satisfy its customer’s needs and the increasing use and popularity of the Internet in Mexico.
Nowadays, whether you are a professional or an individual, business and personal reasons are increasing the demand for Internet access. Having an Internet presence has become more relevantand provides a way through which users are able to expand their personal and commercial relationships. Ignoring this trend can be costly to Mexican business owners and the popularity of the .MX domain indicates that they are starting to understand this.
The preference to own a .MX domain name points to the desire that Mexicans have to own a national identity on the Internet, while promoting themselves worldwide. This national identity can be observed in most other countries throughout the world when it comes to their own ccTLDs.
NIC México looks forward to the future and will continue to promote the registration of .MX domain names. NIC México has implemented mechanisms to identify customer needs and is continuously improving its services and technology infrastructure towards bettering customer satisfaction. In addition, special offers will be introduced on a regular basis to motivate new registrations of .MX domain names.
