.io has been heavily popular among startups and is seen with respect among the tech community. However, .it has been lagging behind, is little heard of when it directly relates and connects to the tech industry.

Why do you think that happened? Is there a chance that .it may pick up going forward?

Note: .it may mean Information Technology

Owner:
An individual residing in European Union
or
An organization registered in European Union with a VAT number

-----
Mainly addressed to local (italian), the main reason why .it development just like that..

One question about the .it names.

In case to sell any domain to change the ownership it's necessary to send the ID or passport for new an old owner or only confirm via admin email similar has gTLDs names?

In other ccTLDs as .es yes I need to contact with nic.es and send a photo with my personal ID.
