Benefits for the registrants of having .overheidnl domain names are in the fact domain names can not be claimed by others than organizations that are considered to be part of the Dutch Government. The Dutch Government currently communicates in general via domain names registered under the .nl ccTLD. One of the challenges for the Dutch Government thereby is that the .nl domain, as many traditional TLD’s, is an ‘open’ TLD where domain names are issued on a strictly first come first served bases. Where this clearly is beneficial in many ways, the downside for the Dutch Government is that other parties may register or have registered domainnames that are of interest to governmental organizations or create false expectations for Internet users by registering and using domain names that are regarded by the public as being governmental domain names or typo’s of such names. By having a strictly Government only gTLD the Government makes sure that governmental organizations can register that domain names that they choose and that these names are available. It further provides a warranty to Internet users that they actually communicate with a governmental organization which enhances further trust in governmental Internet communication for Internet users.
