ITC Seminar Addresses the Top-level Domain Names
A technical seminar for the introduction of the new top-level domain names program held by the ITC.
Eng. Mahdioun, Vice Chairman and the Managing Director of ITC described the process of registering for the new domain names. According to Mr. Mahdioun, the registration process for applicants will begin on 12 Jan. 2012 and end on 12 Apr. 2012.
The Head of the Experts Committee on the top- level domain names in the ITC Management Working Group described the 9-year delay in the acceptance of the top-level domain names registration applications by the ICANN as an important factor that has given the owners of such domains a monopolistic power on the market. There will be no language and subject limitation for these domain names.
It is predicted that, at the first stage, ICANN receive applications for more than 500 general and geographical, and more than 1000 commercial suffixes. A specification of the new round of TLD registration is the introduction of Internationalized Domain Names (IDN).
