We will protect names as per the requirements in the New TLD Registry Agreement (Specification 5, paragraph 5) by reserving the country and territory names at the second level and at all other levels within the TLD operator make registrations. A list of those names will be compiled and published to relevant audiences before the TLD is introduced. These domains will be blocked following the Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC) advice “Principles regarding new gTLDs”, at no cost to the relevant organization, so that no parties may register them as a domain name.
Furthermore the country names of Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein and Switzerland in German language will be initially reserved (Oesterreich +IDN, Deutschland, Liechtenstein, Schweiz). The procedure to release the names will include the consultation with the respective GAC members as described in Specification 5.
Together with the respective governments and ccTLD managers as well as with ICANN we will comply with any procedures and set-up agreements by which the above reserved domain(s) may be released to the Registry Operator and may be made available for registration consecutively by eligible parties.
