Cities battle over geographic internet domains

A LONG rivalry between Sydney and Melbourne has moved to the web, as both vie to be the first Australian city to operate its own international top-level domain.

But it's a race in which they could find themselves as much collaborators as opponents.

The NSW Premier's Office and the City of Melbourne have confirmed that they're moving to establish community geographic top-level domains .sydney and .melbourne, respectively.

However, the two are as much in a race against cities of the same name in other countries as they are with each other.

A spokesman for the NSW Premier's Department said the state was planning to release to registries a tender to operate the .sydney name.

"If approved by government, the successful tenderer will assist in applying to ICANN to secure the .sydney TLD and operate it," the spokesman said.
