dotPR Addresses Remain Operational Despite Puerto Rico Island Wide Power Outage

Gauss Research Laboratories, the .PR ccTLD manager, is pleased to announce that addresses are still up and running and will work worldwide despite the power situation in Puerto Rico. GRL enacted a significant upgrade to the infrastructure supporting .PR address in January this year, following its selection of Afilias plc to provide technical services. Since the upgrade, the TLD has been impervious to power problems in Puerto Rico.

Pablo Rodríguez, Executive Vice President of PRTLD, "We are pleased to announce that the .PR registry is still up and accessible during the power outage. As internet operating environment for ccTLDs is increasingly complex and hostile, Afilias has been upgrading our technology to better protect our domain owners."

.PR is unrestricted, so it's a natural address for Public Relations agencies and practitioners worldwide. Of course, it's also great for those doing business in Puerto Rico.

Headquartered in San Juan, Gauss Research Laboratories manages the top-level domain .PR with a goal of providing a solid registry that provides Puerto Ricans with accessible services and tools that can aid in the development of a reliable IT community throughout the island. Interested registrants should contact their favorite registrar to select their name; interested registrars should contact salesadmin@afilias.info.

The .pr registry has been operating since 1989, when founder, Dr. Oscar Moreno de Ayala, embarked on the responsibility of managing and building .PR from its beginning.
