ISNIC, Vergabestelle für .IS Domains (Island), hat einen besonderen mittels Pressemitteilung verbreiteten ISNIC Aprilscherz verbreitet:

01/04/2016 – .is domains sold out

.is domains sold out

As the number of .is domains reached 57316 around midnight the first of april 2016 ISNIC can no longer register new .is domains. Our registration database is full so the only .is domains available for now are used domains. You can either buy one from a current registrant or you can come to our office in Reykjavik before 16.00 today and ask if any domains got free today.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and as soon as we install a bigger database we will be able to register new .is domains again.

Have a wonderful weekend.
