Coinciding with the International Day of the Basque Language (December 3) the big #5000baietz (Let’s make it 5,000!) challenge was announced to make the leap from 4,500 to 5,000 domain names by the end of the year in order to go on expanding the .EUS domain. Registering 500 new domain names within a single month turned out to be a major challenge. It took a month and a half to meet the objective; and we are now a consolidated community of 5,000 domains! We warmly welcome the newcomers and extend our thanks to everyone!
