Please find hereunder verbatim the communiqué of Nic MALTA:
*"As has been announced in the press, NIC(Malta) has initiated a public consultation on proposed changes in the domain name registration process in the .mt namespace. Specifically, it is being proposed that IT WOULD BECOME POSSIBLE TO REGISTER DOMAIN NAMES DIRECTLY UNDER .MT. That is, one would also be able to register directly <myname.mt>.
Registrations at the third level, such as <myname.com.mt>, would remain possible.
A transition period is also being proposed so as to give additional rights to existing registrants .COM.MT in order to facilitate the introduction of this new system.
These proposed changes may also affect you. It is therefore very important that you go through the proposed changes and provide us with your feedback. We would like to know if you agree with the proposed changes or whether you would like to see changes in the proposal. Further details may be found at: https://www.nic.org.mt/2LD
Feedback will continue to be accepted UNTIL 30 JUNE 2016.*
