In order for the proposed TLD to become widely preferred and accessible by Internet users from the Cyrillic speaking countries CORE Internet Council Of Registrars will follow the best practices for domain registration which include reservation of geographic names, sunrise, Landrush and also general availability options. Furthermore intended minimization of social costs will be achieved through introducing two key features of the newly proposed domain name service: clear and easy to comprehend registration procedures – where requirements - see paragraph b)iv. above - are lucid and understandable by both experienced second level registrants and private Internet users; very affordable and simplified price list of the service; - prices will be targeted at users from Bulgaria, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus and the actual formation of prices will be adjusted to the social standards of those regions in order to be attractive and affordable to local registrants and users.
c) i. How will multiple applications for a particular domain name be resolved, for example, by auction or on a first-come⁄first- serve basis?
During the launch phase, should there be more than one application for the same domain in a given category (or subcategory), contention resolution processes will apply. The contention resolution processes allow agreement between contenders (withdrawal and refund of application), random selection (if all contenders agree), mediation and arbitration and, as a tie-breaker of last resort, first-come first served allocation in the public authoritiesʹ tier, and auction in any other tier.
c) ii. Explain any cost benefits for registrants you intend to implement (e.g., advantageous pricing, introductory discounts, bulk registration discounts).
The focus of the .онлайн TLD is bottom-line cost to registrants and stakeholders, not the direct per-unit cost. The bottom-line cost is greatly reduced thanks by avoiding contention between legitimate applicants and speculators.
CORE Internet Council Of Registrars will follow the dynamics of the user demand for the service and will implement all necessary market strategies for cost benefits to encourage registrants.
c) iii. Note that the Registry Agreement requires that registrars be offered the option to obtain initial domain name registrations for periods of one to ten years at the discretion of the registrar, but no greater than ten years. Additionally, the Registry Agreement requires advance written notice of price increases. Do you intend to make contractual commitments to registrants regarding the magnitude of price escalation? If so, please describe your plans.
CORE Internet Council of Registrars is committed to providing domain name registration services in accordance with the requirements, notices and periods set forth in the Registry Agreement. The .онлайн TLD will be based on predictability regarding pricing. The .онлайн TLD Registry-Registrar Agreement will not contain specific or non-standard clauses regarding price escalation between the .онлайн Registry and its registrars.as.com
The .онлайн TLD business plan is designed to avoid any future necessity to increase registration price in real terms. The fundamental principle is prudence: starting from conservative price levels and gradually lowering them. This method ensures sufficient financial reserves, favors optimal allocation of domain names, helps prevent misuse and supports an orderly registration process.
