We have engaged ARI Registry Services (ARI) to deliver backend technology services for this TLD.
ARI is experienced with:
– The operational issues of operating TLDs, including ccTLDs.
– TLDs that offer registrations at the third level (e.g. .com.au, .net.au) and which have their own set of unique issues.
– The rendering and operational issues surrounding the introduction of IDNs.
The following is the result of ARI’s analysis.
ARI has not found any issues unique to this TLD with respect to operational and rendering issues.
This has been established by:
– Testing of the TLD string itself.
– Researching issues experienced by others.
– Our understanding of published material.
– Our own experience.
2. LOCAL TESTING OF THE TLD STRING
ARI has executed a suite of tests to evaluate any issues arising from the use of the TLD string. ARI configured a test environment that consisted of DNS software that served authoritative responses for this TLD, web server software that hosted a simple website, and an email server that provided mailboxes for sample domains in this TLD. Testing included:
– Navigation of websites using the address bar and hyperlinks.
– Composition and delivery of mail.
– Mail filters such as spam detection.
– Display of domain names in address bars, hyperlinks, and free text.
Where possible, ARI attempted to test many equivalent applications, however the number of and different versions of applications means that testing was limited to the more common environments. Tested platforms and applications included:
– Microsoft Windows, Apple OS X and Red Hat Linux.
– Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera, Firefox and Chrome.
– Exchange, Sendmail and Postfix.
ARI did not find any operational or rendering issues with this TLD that are unique to this TLD.
This completes our response to Q16.
