If you own a .com.mt domain you have to read this

Friday, September 9th, 2016

As you may know, NIC Malta is the entity responsible for the Maltese country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD), a fancy word meaning NIC Malta is in charge of the .com.mt domain.

In a recent proposal brought forward by NIC(Malta) back in June the country domain for Malta will become much shorter… And simpler! The proposal aims to make registration for a .mt domain possible, as opposed to the currently standard and longer .com.mt which we have become accustomed to.

.com.mt domain

Yes, thats right, .com.mt will now be shortened to just .mt.

Why, you ask? There are four main advantages:

But what happens if i already own a .com.mt domain?

Should the NIC (Malta) proposal go through, you can buy a simpler yourwebsite.mt domain. However, the ‘old’ .com.mt will still remain operational. In addition, if you already own a .com.mt domain, you form part of a Preferential Registration Period. This basically means that if you own yourwebsite.com.mt, the corresponding yourwebsite.mt will be only available to you.

This period will run for 3 years. During these 3 years, it is being proposed that anyone owning a .com.mt domain can use the corresponding .mt domain for free. After this period however, you can either pay to renew the .mt domain, or release it for others to use.

Social Media Management

Facebook have announced that they will be reducing the number of posts from Business pages from people’s news feeds. This will be done to increase the quantity of posts by friends while scrolling through the social medium. The reasoning behind this, according to Mark Zuckerberg, is that using social media to interact with people we care about can be beneficial, while “passively reading articles or watching videos… may not be as good.”
