The Applicant will comply with Specification 5 “Schedule of Reserved Names at the Second Level in gTLD Registries” of the ICANN New gTLD Agreement. In particular, names covered under the Country and Territory Names section of the said schedule shall be initially reserved on the second level. The names are:
- the short form (in English) of all country and territory names contained on 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-3166-1_decoding_table.htm#EU〉;
- 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;
At a later time, the registry may propose to ICANN to release specific country and territory names, subject to the registry reaching agreement with the applicable government(s), the Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC) review and approval by ICANN. Rules and procedures for the release of such names will be agreed upon between ICANN and the registry.
The registry is considering the following procedures for releasing specific country and territory names, subject to ICANN approval:
1. In order for specific country and territory names to be released and become available for .ryukyu stakeholders to register, the registry shall submit a proposal letter to ICANN and the GAC including, at minimum, the following:
A. The list of country and territory names which the registry requests for release; and
B. Purpose of releasing the names listed above;
2. ICANN and the GAC review the proposal letter and inform of the proposal to the relevant government(s);
3. Each of the relevant governments takes the following action:
A. If the government approves or does not object to the proposal, it replies with its decision of “approval” or “non-objection” by a due date set and agreed upon by ICANN, the GAC, and the registry; or
B. If the government does not approve the proposal, it replies with a “non-approval” decision by a due date set and agreed upon by ICANN, the GAC, and the registry.
4. If a reply is not received by the due date agreed upon by ICANN, the GAC and the registry, or the government replied with an “approval” or “non-objection” decision, the names may be released for registration.
5. In case the government replied with a “non-approval” decision, the government and the registry may enter negotiation to attempt to reach agreement, and only upon reaching agreement shall the names be released.
6. Potential applicants of the names shall send registration requests to the registry. The request must include the following information:
A. Domain name(s) the applicant wishes to register;
B. A pledge the applicant understands the purpose and rules of the domain name registration and use included in the proposal letter described 1.A. above; and
C. A pledge the applicant abides by the purpose and rules of the domain name registration and use included in the proposal letter described 1.A. above;
7. The registry reviews the request and checks availability of the requested name. In case the registry approves the request, it issues a “code.”
Note: The availability check is conducted to see whether the requested domain name has been already requested and registered by another applicant.
8. Using the “code,” the applicant requests the domain name registration through a .ryukyu accredited registrar.
In addition to the reserved geographic names specified by ICANN, the registry intends to initially reserve some geographic names at the second level in .ryukyu TLD.
- Names of government-decreed city, prefecture, ward, city, town, village in Japan that the respective governments require to reserve; and
- Other geographic names (i.e. sister-city) that the respective governments requires to reserve.
As the responsible use of these names is in the public interest, methodology to release these names will be determined by the respective government(s) and the registry. The list of the reserved geographic names will be posted at the registry website and it shall be revised upon a request made by the relevant governments.
