Go Daddy anticipates that geographic names will be a significant component of the gTLD use case, in particular for establishing an online presence for location-specific real estate properties. Therefore, there will be no restrictions on geographic names at the second (or higher) level.

Go Daddy will consider objections from governments that believe a second-level (or higher level, if offered by Go Daddy) registration infringes on a protected geographic name. Protected geographic names include strings in the “ISO 3166-1 alpha 3” country list, and the “Country Name Conventional Short Form List,” both listed in English ASCII.

An appropriate representative (for example, the agency or ministry responsible for managing telecommunication or Internet affairs) or the Government Advisory Committee (GAC) member associated with the country or territory shall send notification of objection. Go Daddy may then, in its sole discretion, take action against the registration, up to and including suspension, deletion, and blocking future registration.
