ICANN To Open Up Comment Period On Donuts Request To Allow 2 Letter New gTLD’s

ICANN just posted a letter it send to Jon Nevett of Donuts regarding its request to release all 2 letter new gTLD domain in all the strings that Donuts has signed contracts with.

It appears ICANN is not against the concept saying;

“ICANN has conducted a preliminary review of your request introduce two-character domains to the marketplace and “Based on the information provided, ICANN’s preliminary review did not identify any significant competition or security and stability issues.”

“Implementation of your proposal is the first type of request in the new gTLD space and would require an amendment to the following Registry Agreements:”

As a result, ICANN will post the amendments for public comment.

ICANN looks forward to working with you on the proposed amendments that will be posted for public comment, and will provide amendment language to help facilitate discussions.

    Michael, Just a clarification that the request was “to make available for registration those two-character ASCII
    labels that do not appear on the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 list and for which there are no corresponding country-code operators.” So not ALL two-character labels . . . yet . . .

  2. says

    What if a new country were formed? Let’s take South Sudan, which was created in 2011. The country was awarded .ss, which was created in the same year (though not yet operational). OK, South Sudan probably will not use its ccTLD anytime soon, but IMO countries still have priority over companies and other institutions on 2-letter extensions, so they should be reserved.

    • says

      You might want to notice that the RSEP mentioned in my name is for combinations involving digits; current version of the agreements also forbid any 2-character domains, not only 2-letter, like f1.auto .

  3. says

    Joe

    that is why all two letters were reserved

    That is why they are asking them to be released

    So there are 220 ccTLD’s or countries and there are 676 two letter combinations

    So your suggesting that 2x more domains than countries should be reserved forever in case a new country is formed?

  4. says

    Let’em rain… :)
    More new domains = more Confusion
