The domain is one of the official Internet country code top-level domains of Portugal. It is a meaningful domain extension, which is used in particular by Portuguese companies - the combination is formed of the short form "com" for commercial use and the official abbreviation "pt" for Portugal. But also private individuals are able to buy and register a domain. For companies, it is necessary to communicate your VAT number; by private individuals we need the identity card number to buy and register your desired domain.

The "Fundação para a Computação Científica Nacional" manages the registered domains such as the country-specific top-level domain .pt of Portugal.

Currently 500,000 .pt domains have been registered in Portugal; a positive trend is recorded. In the last 6 months alone, nearly 80,000 new domains were registered.
