The site of the marketing campaign of Registro.it is online (www.unnomeunsogno.it). The campaign is aimed at increasing awareness in the use of the Internet, with a special focus on micro, small and medium enterprises, which are the backbone of the Italian economy and that can substantially benefit from a valid use of the Internet.

This number called "Big Data - The future is smart," tells of the positive side of Big Data (and not about the "dark" side, concerning privacy violation and security risks). The data that citizens make available on the Web are the lifeblood of research and of a future, all smart!
Internetopoli was born! It’s the new application created by the .it “Ludoteca" of the Italian Registry (in cooperation with Giunti Os), for the pupils of the primary school and in order to help teachers and parents who want to educate “digital natives” to use the Internet consciously. The application (available for free at www.internetopoli.it) has also the aim to facilitate the interaction with the wide potentiality of the Web. The Police Headquarters of Genoa has adopted Internetopoli as learning system of the safe web surfing for the campaign “Una vita da social” (a sort of life surfing the Web, using social networks).
Everything changes. Even the world of the Internet. And memory changes (both collective and individual), being the protagonist of the hot topic “the right to be forgotten". What is really happening on the internet? And what is changing for future generations? What about freedom and the right to information? Many protagonists of the internet and exceptional guests such as the Guarantor for the Protection of Personal Data, Antonello Soro, and Luciano Floridi, expert in the Philosophy and Ethics of information and one of the five members of the Google Consulting Committee for the “right to be forgotten”, will answer these questions.
Rain-Ng has new functions: it integrates Registry documents, news and training courses, and with a user management system that allows the Registrar to define new roles for access to the portal and differentiate among them both for information they can view and the operations they can perform, on the basis of specific defined groups. Information relative to .it names can now be exported by type. The search for domains inside invoices is also new, together with the management of credit card transactions.
The set of characters admitted in the requests for .it registration has been extended: the IDN (Internationalized Domain Names) includes the 24 official languages of the European Union. With this new feature, the characters admitted for the registration of an .it domain are made up of all the characters belonging to the charsets (editor’s note: codes) Latin-1 Supplement, Latin Extended-A, Latin Extended-B, Greek, Greek Extended and Cyrillic. Not accepted are domain names that contain characters belonging to different charsets (Latin, Greek, Cyrillic), excluding of course the suffix “.it” and names and domains belonging to the geographic tree map.
Over the course of 2014 two new DNS anycast nodes of the Registry were activated, one at the Internet eXchange point of Stockholm, Netnod, and the other at the Internet eXchange point of Frankfurt, DE-CIX. Another two new nodes are being activated at AMSIX (Amsterdam) and at LINX (London).
The maximum period of remaining in the pending Transfer has been reduced from 3 calendar days to one, so as to reduce any inconvenience linked to “non-visibility” over the net for domains subject to modifications by the Registrar.
