13th of February of 2006 will remain a historical date in Internet. This day began the sunrise period for the .cat domain, the very first and only first level Internet domain granted to a language and a culture. This February, a press conference will be held by Fundació puntCAT to present the balance of these two years. The most important point of the press conference is the announcement that there will be a price reduction for the registration of the .cat domain.
Currently, the registration of a .cat domain costs three times as much as a .es domain or a .com domain, which acts as a barrier to the purchase and popularization of the domain .cat The only condition to be able to use the .cat domain is that the website has to be at least in Catalan.
