punt CAT

If you know how to translate "Can I Haz Cheezburger?" in Catalan, then you might register LOL.CAT (I can't figure out if it's available or not, the registry says yes, Gandi says no). The .cat domain is open for all to register but one has to publish a website in Catalan within six months of registering a domain name, and it's twice as expensive on average. Plus you'd better not approach the punt CAT registry with a browser that doesn't speak Catalan, or you'll be greeted by this:


I wish them good luck.


Le .cat est ouvert depuis plus d'un an maintenant même si à l'extérieur de la Catalogne il n'est pas très connu.

Je ne savais pas, j'ai réagi à une news de Gandi qui vient juste d'ouvrir le domaine à l'enregistrement ce mois-ci.

En fait quand j'ai du acheter 2 .cat l'année dernière j'ai fini par passer par un prestataire en Espagne, pas moyen de trouver quelqu'un qui le propose en France... Je suis content que Gandi le propose maintenant...
