Pandi's .id Domain Reigns in Southeast Asia

The Indonesian Internet Domain Name Manager (Pandi) celebrates its success in using the most Indonesian country code domain (.id) in Southeast Asia as many as 534,876 as of July 31, 2021. This number has outperformed the use of the Vietnamese domain (.vn) which has always dominated.

For comparison, users of names, according to Vietnam's official website, totaled 531,672 as of July 31, 2021. The data confirms that Indonesia has now overtaken Vietnam in the use of country code domain names.

This success was also celebrated in the annual event 'Pandi Meeting 12' which was held online on Saturday (21/8) last week. The event was held with the theme 'Steps for Progress on the Resilience and Digital Presence of the Indonesian Nation'.

The success of .id to become the number one domain in Southeast Asia and the fastest growth in the world is the hard work of the Pandi family. This was achieved with all stakeholders and partners who have worked hard so that all levels of society can benefit from it.

"The number of .id domain users has actually only reached 35%, or the second position of the total number of domains in Indonesia. We also invite stakeholders to use the .id domain," said Pandi Chairman Yudho Giri Sucahyo.

In the future, he continued, his party hopes that the .id domain can be hosted in their own country. Therefore, Pandi invites all parties, from the government, the private sector, and the community in the country, to want to use the .id domain.

On the same occasion, Pandi also inaugurated the Indonesia Anti-Phishing Data Exchange and invited all levels of society in the country to fight phishing.

Yudho also emphasized the importance of fighting phishing. "Because of the increasingly massive growth of the internet, we need to increase security and resilience on the internet from more and more phishing attacks," he added.
