NASK (pl) Satisfaction Survey
In October 2011 a yearly Partners of NASK satisfaction survey was conducted. 50 Partners took part in the research, from which 38 were from Poland and 12 from countries abroad. Evaluation of cooperation with NASK, as of yet, turned out to be very positive, with about 38% respondents claiming that the cooperation is very good, 28% that it’s good and 28% rather good and only 6% had no opinion about the subject. It is worth stressing that no Partner claimed the cooperation to be rather bad, bad or very bad.
Registry system was rated by the vast majority - 82%, as stable and the technical documentation as complete and clear – 88% of all votes. We are very glad to say that a stunning 60% of Partners, taking part in the survey claimed the level of service, offered by their dedicated Key Account Manager in NASK Partner Programme Development Team, to be very good and 26% said it is good, remaining 14% had no opinion about the subject. There wasn’t even one negative comment in this regard.
To the question, which was given to Partners, with whom we cooperate for over a year, asking which of the changes, incorporated in recent times, is valued the most (more than one answer was allowed) about 40% of respondents answered “Procedure on unauthorized .pl domain name deletion”.
