On the International Day of the Basque Language the PuntuEUS Foundation will be announcing two new Internet services: labur.eus and whois.eus

Labur.eus

This will be a service in Basque to summarize links. It will enable long URLs to be turned into short, easy addresses and also for these addresses to be personalised. Labur.eus is a project being developed by the PuntuEUS Foundation in collaboration with Dinahosting; it is based on Polr 2 and has a GNU GPL licence.

Whois.eus

This will be a tool to obtain information on websites or domain names. It is the first one to offer this service in Basque. The tool will enable the user to see the information used in the registration of domain names and its availability.
