First New gTLDs Get the Green Light for Delegation

The time has come! Today, the first four domains from ICANN’s New Generic Top-Level Domains Program were cleared to proceed to delegation. This marks the start of a measured roll out of new gTLDs, which are designed to expand opportunities for businesses, communities and Internet users around the world.

These first new gTLDs, or strings, are:

شبكة (xn--ngbc5azd) – the Arabic word for “Web” or “Network”
Registry : International Domain Registry Pty. Ltd.
онлайн (xn--80asehdb) – Russian for “Online”
Registry: Core Association
сайт (xn--80aswg) – Russian for “Web site”
Registry: Core Association
游戏 (xn--unup4y) – Chinese for “Game”
Registry: Spring Fields, LLC

You’ll note that all four of these new strings are Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs). IDNs are currently available as Second-Level Domains and country code Top-Level Domains, but this will be the first time non-Latin characters can be used in a generic TLD. Building on the addition of Internationalized country-code TLDs in 2010, the move is an effort to create a more inclusive Internet.

The Registries that will operate these IDN gTLDs successfully completed a rigorous application process designed to protect the stability of the Domain Name System while introducing new gTLDs into the Internet. Only applicants that can meet the requirements outlined in the New gTLD Applicant Guidebook will be given an opportunity to operate a gTLD. The application process includes the following phases or elements:

-Evaluation
-Resolution of Holds:
-Objections
-String Contention
-Contracting
-Pre-Delegation Testing

We congratulate International Domain Registry Pty. Ltd, Core Association and Spring Fields, LLC on their success in the New gTLD Program, and look forward to working with these and many other new Registries in the future.

The first four new gTLDs are expected to go live in the next few hours.
That’s according to the registries themselves, and reports out of the Internet Governance Forum in Bali, where ICANN division president Akram Atallah was speaking on a panel earlier today.

This could be the reason.

The name was live and resolving for at least an hour. Donuts pulled it after we asked a company executive whether it might be a breach of contract.

Two things need to happen that we don't know the dates for yet.

1) Verisign needs to sign the contracts with ICANN for the new gTLDs (.ком and so on). Presumably they are negotiating these now, but we probably won't know the timing until they are actually signed and announced. Registries that sign ICANN's standardized contracts can skip the negotiation step, saving a lot of time. I believe the four gTLDs that just entered the root took this faster path, and I believe that Verisign will not.

2) Verisign and ICANN need to agree on an "Approved Launch Program under the TMCH Requirements". The ALP is the program that would hopefully give IDN.com registrants (us, in other words) priority over trademark holders for IDN.com-in-IDN. Probably this will involve a public comment period, probably the trademark interests will object, and probably this process won't even start until after the contract is signed.

Verisign is no doubt aware that the longer they take to negotiate the contracts, and to negotiate the ALPs, the further they fall behind .сайт, .онлайн, .рус (which hasn't been delegated yet), and of course .рф.

Verisign Delegates Four New gTLDs to the Root Zone
Pat Kane | Oct 23, 2013

On Oct. 23, 2013, at approximately 11:00 a.m. EDT, Verisign received authorization instructions from the U.S. Department of Commerce National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to delegate four new gTLDs into the root zone, which we are responsible for maintaining per the Cooperative Agreement between Verisign and NTIA. Verisign acted in accordance with our contractual obligation and delegated these TLDs into the root zone at 2:33 p.m. EDT the same day.

Verisign has entered the ASCII versions of the strings listed below into the DNS root, now making these gTLDs live.


• .сайт (XN--80ASWG): Russian word for “Web site”
•.онлайн (XN--80ASEHDB) Russian word for “.online”
• شبكة. (XN--NGBC5AZD) Arabic word for “Web” or “Network,” and;
•.游戏 (XN--UNUP4Y) Chinese word for “Game”
How about getting to the .com/net IDN versions VeriSign.
What's wrong with you guys?

First the cctlds go first...and now every other BS IDN tld goes before .com IDNs
Give your head a shake!

VeriSign very much wants to move forward on .com and .net and they tried. They were blocked by the IPC (Intellectual Property Constituency) who publically went against VeriSign's plan throwing up issues that could be solved thru WIPO or other existing mechanisms.

They also "suggest" there be an open sunrise registration period that could effectively create 2 different "dot com" owners, which would be highly confusing and essentially hamstring the IDN program for most developers and perhaps push them to either partner in some fashion with the "other" com translit owner, or maybe find a better solution to develop on a IDN.ccTLD.

VeriSign will now need to address this, and figure out a compromise or deal with them after which there will be another round of public comments. If they get that sorted out, they can file their launch plan with ICANN, which will again probably need to be followed by another round of public comments etc...it could go well into 2014 or 2015 but who knows. I am sure they are trying to work a compromise thru their channels.

Here is the IPC'S "reasoning" and link below:

IPC Opposes VeriSign’s Proposal to Duplicate the .COM Registry in IDNs gTLDs

The IPC opposes VeriSign’s (Registry Operator for .COM/.NET) proposal as submitted to ICANN on September 6, 2013 as “Reply Comments” on the Rights Protection Mechanism requirements implementation document.

Of concern, VeriSign is proposing “registration policies that provide for domain names in the new gTLD to be allocated or designated to an existing registrant with an exact match second level in another TLD operated by the registry operator.”. VeriSign’s proposal circumvents the established Rights Protection Mechanisms, such as the Sunrise Period, which provide priority to trademark owners in the registration of domain names that are identical to trademark records in the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH). These mechanisms were designed to ensure consumer protection and reduce end-user confusion in the introduction of new gTLD. For these reasons, the IPC opposes the VeriSign proposal as currently proposed in public comment.

VeriSign’s proposal states: “Accordingly, we recommend the following language be added to the end of Section 2.2.4: “except the Registry Operator can allocate (i.e. assign, designate or otherwise earmark) a domain name in the TLD to a registrant that is not a Sunrise-Eligible Rights Holder with a valid SMD if the registrant has registered the exact match second-level domain name in another TLD operated by the same registry operator and/or its subsidiary.” (emphasis added).

If ICANN adopts VeriSign’s proposed language, ICANN would effectively authorize registrants that are not Sunrise-Eligible rights holders to obtain a domain name registration ahead of sunrise registrants simply because they have an exact match second-level domain name in another TLD operated by the same registry operator and/or its subsidiary. Such allocation of domain names, as proposed by VeriSign, raises substantial competition and consumer protection policy concerns that have not been considered by ICANN, or the community.

While the IPC recognizes that VeriSign’s proposal will benefit some trademark owners, we believe that the potential risks overshadow that benefit. VeriSign’s proposal to allocate all second-level domains in IDN versions of .COM to existing registrants - fails to take into account prior rights, or whether such existing registrants have obtained their existing domain name through abusive registration, or are otherwise using their domain name to infringe on intellectual property rights or in furtherance of other online fraud and abuse. Moreover, VeriSign’s proposal fails to acknowledge -- let alone address -- the extensive domain registration abuse in the .COM registry, which would be duplicated across various IDN versions of .COM under the VeriSign proposal.

The IPC has considered VeriSign’s proposal, and believes it may be subject to implementation on the established Sunrise Period, ONLY if the following conditions are met:
2 VeriSign’s Reply Comments are available at: http://forum.icann.org/lists/comments-rpm-requirements- 06aug13/msg00037.html
3 (i) the registrant has registered the exact match second-level domain name in another TLD operated by the same registry operator and/or its subsidiary;
(ii) the registrant is a Sunrise-Eligible Rights Holder with a valid SMD;

Re: First New gTLDs Get the Green Light for Delegation

I feel like I've been in a "Sunrise Period", for 8 years!

Thanks, for the info, Bill...I have a better understanding, now.
Just needed to rant, after sinking another $400 in renewals, on my credit card.

A Sunrise Period is OK for NEW TLDs but not for existing ones. Trademark Owners are already able to register their names. If someone else owns it... file a URDP!
