.si is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Slovenia. It is administered by the ARNES, the Academic and Research Network of Slovenia. In 2010, the registry has hosted 80,000 domain names.[3] In 2012, that number increased to 100,000 .si domain names when the domain zj.si was registered by Jasico d.o.o.[1]

Domain hacks[edit]

Domain hacks for the .si TLD are quite popular, since si is second person singular of the to be verb in the Slovene language. As such, many domains have been created that are using such domain hack, one of the most popular being zadovoljna.si ("You are pleased", female form).

Pepsi also has a pep.si TLD to shorten links.


Risk[edit]

According to research by McAfee performed in 2010, the Slovenian TLD is the tenth most secure.[4]
