- Correspond to words or expressions contrary to law, public order or morality

.pt domains belong to Portugal and are currently managed by the DNS.PT Association, in the year 2020 they reached more than 1,250,000 registered domains.

Although .pt domains were delegated in 1988, it was not until 1991 that the first domain was registered under this extension. In 2001 the figure of registrar was published, which allowed a greater agility in the management of domains and a reduction of registration fees thanks to greater competition.

In 2003, the first .com.pt domains were registered and shortly after, in 2005, IDN domains were made available to the public.

But it is not until 2012 that there is a notable growth in the number of registered domains, this happens because the .pt domain is liberalized, and can be registered from then on by any individual or company, who no longer have the restrictions they had until then, previously they should have prior rights over the name (trademark, trade name, ..). Since then, the number of registered domains has practically tripled.
