As of 12 January, significantly less personal data is shown in the public whois of a .nl domain. The whois allows you to see who holds the domain, and their contact information.
The promotion that VEVIDA ran in December 2009 for its regular customers was a great success. Many people took advantage of the €10 discount and registered an extra domain name or extension. The result was that the number of registrations in December was almost twice as high as in a normal month.
Heliview Research conducted an independent customer satisfaction survey for VEVIDA between 2 November and 4 December. Several hundred customers answered questions in a telephone interview on our service, products and image among other things. Customers were also asked about possible points for improvement. And… we are proud of the results. You gave us a grade of 7.6/10!

EURid, the registry of .eu-domains, will support so-called IDNs as of 10 December 2009. IDN stands for “Internationalised Domain Names”. For the first time, residents of the European Union can register a .eu-domain with symbols that are not in the “standard” alphabet. Examples of these include the Swedish å, the German ü, the Romanian ş and the full Bulgarian and Greek alphabets.
You already have a free MySQL database with your hosting package. This is used to store data from free software for websites, such as weblogs (for example WordPress and Joomla) and web shops (osCommerce and ZenChart). In this way, you can use these kinds of tools for your website immediately. Microsoft SQL Server is a good choice for more professional applications.
