Needless to say that a great attraction toward .al domains is the “domain-hacks” or the ability to create a word with the .al ending. In the last years we have seen a larg number of similar domain hacks, where the number one are the turkish words, but a lot of attention has been toward english words as well.
Due to continous pressure to the Registry, a proposal to change the regulation in favor of 2 letter domains has been pushed for consultation and in a few days there will be a decision.
This means that there might be a chance to register 2 letter .al domains soon! We will inform our customers as soon as we can to let them benefit from this change.
