Since May 2013, the number of active domain names dip below 2012 period.  The  high domain price contributed to the slow adoption of  .my country level extensions. For example domain name  yourname.my cost RM 120.00  –  three times higher than top level yourname.com. Other factors highlighted by by our customers is privacy protection.  .MY extension WHOIS  query is publicly available.  Many domain owners complained that they often  targeted with unsolicited email. Spammers often collect information from WHOIS from newly registered .my domains.  My extension domains also lack of DNS management interface. Top level domain providers often bundled this feature as complimentary or add on with minor charges.

Despite of the issues highlighted above, good names are still available for .my country domains. DataKL also can assist you to use your .my domains to help you to point to blogspot, Google Aps, tumbler and any other services without additional cost. It is advisable to use non primary email for domain registration if you are concern being a target of unsolicited email.  DataKL will inform you via text messaging service if your domain is about to expire.  DataKL also would offer assistance if you prefer to renew .my domain extensions and to appoint as billing invoicing party.
