As all second level registrations under the .gmx TLD will be exclusively created by Mail&Media, controlling the registration of restricted second level names is a simple process. Mail&Media, as per the terms of the Registry Agreement with ICANN, will honor the list of reserved Names as per Specification 5. Mail&Media will not register any geographic names or their short form at the second or at any other levels of the TLD. The control process for researching if a potential second level domain is considered a geographic name will see Mail&Media utilizing:

the ISO 3166-1 list, as updated from time to time, including the European Union, which is exceptionally reserved on the ISO 3166-1 list, and its scope extended in August 1999 to any application needing to represent the name European Union 〈http:⁄⁄www.iso.org⁄iso⁄support⁄country_codes⁄iso_3166_code_lists⁄iso-3166-

the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names, Technical Reference Manual for the Standardization of Geographical Names, Part III Names of Countries of the World;

and the list of United Nations member states in 6 official United Nations languages prepared by the Working Group on Country Names of the United Nations Conference on the Standardization of Geographical Names.

Should a proposed domain name exist within any of the lists above, whether at the second level or at other levels, Mail&Media will not register it.
