The FCCN, Foundation for National Scientific Computing, launched a tool that allows you to search if a specific brand or domain in .pt is already registered.
The initiative implements a measure of Simplex 2009 and has the collaboration of the National Institute of Industrial Property. The databases of INPI and DNS.pt, managed by FCCN, come together to ensure the provision of this free service.
«This measure will have a direct impact on boosting the management and registration of domains and, consequently, on promoting the Portuguese community on the Internet», defends Pedro Veiga, president of FCCN, mentioned in a statement.
The use of the new functionality can be made from the electronic address of DNS.pt or from the INPI website.
