New Top Level Domains (TLDs)

The explosive growth and commercialization of the Internet has generated worldwide interest in new Top-Level Domains (TLDs) and have new registries available to run them. There is also a worldwide interest for corporations to register their own corporate TLD without the need for a public registry. Through various approved and accredited TLD Registrars all corporations have the possibility to register their own Corporate TLD including the millions of domain names that belong to it.

The Internet's popularity put considerable strain on the legacy root system resources. This resulted in a scarcity of domain names. The Public-Root addresses and solves these problems by opening up competition in the Top-Level Domain industry giving users a broad choice of available domain names on the global Internet.

The INAIC's operations provide for the diversification, distribution and expansion of the Public-Root through the launching, delegation and creation of new TLDs. Our role is limited to ensuring that new delegations do not affect the operational stability and integrity of the domain name system (DNS).

To meet this mandate the INAIC supports the direct participation of the global Internet community in TLD delegation and registry operations. Access to the Public-Root system by private and public interests is guaranteed through the INAIC's open and inclusive TLD listing policies. The INAIC's policies recognize the diversity of the Internet community and the unlimited potential of TLDs to promote and enhance communications.

New TLDs may address the needs and interests of a defined community. A TLD may be general in scope and appeal to the global Internet community or it can be specific to a geographical location or special interest.

Corporations, commercial enterprises and governments benefit from the delegation of TLDs. Corporate TLDs have been used to establish a web identity in conjunction with corporate trademarks and intellectual property rights.

The INAIC promotes and encourages open competition and self-regulation of the TLD industry. It is the registry operator’s responsibility to ensure that the new TLD zone and registry perform reliably and in compliance with technical standards.

There are 5 kinds of TLDs available on the Internet. More ...
