The domains .gal, .cat, .eus and .barcelona celebrate the European Day of Languages with price reductions
Santiago, September 20, 2023.- PuntoGal, together with the .cat, .eus and .barcelona domains, wants to contribute to the celebration of the European Day of Languages, next September 26, with a joint promotion. At the registrars participating in this promotion, interested parties will be able to obtain their .gal (or .cat, .eus or .barcelona) for a maximum price of 5 euros plus VAT between September 21 and October 11.
The Council of Europe proposed the celebration of this day in 2001 to raise awareness among Europeans of the linguistic richness of our continent, and how it reflects a great cultural heritage that is kept alive through these languages.
These four domains, which encompass the linguistic diversity of almost thirteen million speakers in several European states, want to join this day of celebration and pride to share diversity and see this wealth as a tool of communication and understanding.
To take advantage of the discount promotion on .gal prices, it is necessary to go to the registrars OpenProvider, Blacknight, cdmon, Netim, Arsys, OVH, Nominalia, Dinahosting, Don Dominio, Gandi, Entorno and INWX that offer different pricing policies and services with the registration of new domains. PuntoGal recommends visiting all the pages of the companies participating in the promotion and finding the one that best suits your needs. All the information can be found on the page www.dominio.gal/promocions/.
PuntoGal has been the managing entity of the Galician domain since 2014. Established in 2006, it carries out its work in three main areas: domain management, representation of Galicia in network management organizations at an international level and corporate actions to support initiatives in the field of technology, the network, language and culture. Today there are around 6,900 .gal domains registered.
PUNTUEUS is the entity responsible for the management, control and administration of the .EUS domain. In May 2012, PUNTUEUS submitted the .EUS domain application to ICANN and it was the foundation, in December 2013, that signed the contract with the body that manages the Internet.
The mission of PUNTUEUS is to influence the digital transformation of society through Basque, promoting the dissemination of the .EUS domain and launching advanced digital transformation projects. There are currently more than 14,000 .EUS domains registered.
The .cat Foundation is a private, non-profit entity with no political affiliation that manages the .cat domain. Its objectives are to promote activities related to the management and promotion of the .cat domain, promote Catalan identity and the normalization of the use of Catalan in the field of Internet and ICT. The .cat domain was born in 2006 and was the first domain associated with a linguistic and cultural community.
The .barcelona is the Internet domain that allows you to present yourself to the world by indicating your relationship with Barcelona.
