  • Archive of the Portuguese Web

    In early 2008 began the systematic process of archiving of the Portuguese Web content, i.e., the pages of domains under the Top Level Country Code .pt, by gathering and storing complete snapshots every two months. Earlier content of domains under .pt that had been previously gathered by the Internet Archive was purchased to this organization in order to be also preserved within the Archive of the Portuguese Web.
