HLT Stakis IP Limited (“HLT Stakis”) shall follow the advice of ICANN’s Governmental Advisory Committee and adhere to the requirements set forth in Specification 5 of the Registry Agreement by initially reserving from registration at no cost the country and territory names that appear on the following internationally recognized lists:

A. The short form (in English) of all country and territory names contained on the ISO 3166-1, as updated from time to time, including the European Union;
B. The United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names, Technical Reference Manual for the Standardization of Geographical Names, Part III Names and Countries of the World; and
C. 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.

HLT Stakis is working with its technical service provider, Neustar, Inc., to finalize the procedure for reserving these names. Neustar has agreed to, and is technically able to, implement such reservations.

Only HLT Stakis and its Affiliates will be permitted to register and use .hilton domain names. Accordingly, the country and territory names that will be reserved in the .hilton registry will not be available to third parties. HLT Stakis may, however, seek to release and register at the second level country and territory names for its own use upon agreement with the applicable government or governments, or pursuant to a proposal reviewed by the Governmental Advisory Committee and approved by ICANN.
