Welcome to the IDN ccTLD Fast Track String Evaluation Request System
The IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process is a mechanism to delegate a limited number of non-contentious internationalized country-code top-level domain names (IDN ccTLDs). There are several requirements for submitting a request in the process, all of which are defined in the Final Implementation Plan for the IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process http://www.icann.org/en/topics/idn/fast-track/.
A request for an IDN ccTLD using the Fast Track Process is comprised of two separate processes:
This online system allows eligible participants to provide all the information required for the String Evaluation process, and submit the request to ICANN. Please note that the String Delegation process has a different set of requirements, and is managed separately to this system. After a successful String Evaluation, a String Delegation request must be conducted with IANA Root Zone Management as described in http://www.iana.org/domains/root/delegation-guide.
By signing and submitting this request the Requestor commits to TLD operations that will secure and enhance the stability and interoperability of the Internet's Domain Name System (DNS) for the benefit of the local and global Internet community, and to working in good faith together with ICANN towards a stable and secure Internet DNS. The Requestor understands that ICANN reserves the right to take actions necessary to protect the security, stability and interoperability of the global DNS.
ICANN expects that IDN ccTLDs will be established and operated in the manner described below:
If the Requestor seeks to enter into a Documentation of Responsibilities, an Exchange of Letters, or a general TLD Agreement with ICANN after delegation, please check relevant boxes below. For reference, templates are available in the Final Implementation Plan at http://www.icann.org/en/topics/idn/fast-track/.
Please send a copy of the prearranged and recommended template for the Exchange of Letters. Please send a copy of the prearranged and recommended Documentation of Responsibilities. Please note that Requestor is interested in entering into an IDN ccTLD Registry Agreement with ICANN governing the operation of the delegated string, and requests that a template Agreement is sent when available.
Requestor warrants that the statements and representations contained in the request (including any documents submitted and oral statements made in connection with the request) are true and accurate and complete in all material respects, and that ICANN may rely on those statements and representations fully in evaluating this application.
Requestor acknowledges that any material misstatement or misrepresentation (or omission of material information) will reflect negatively on this request and may cause ICANN to terminate the request.
By submitting this request, I represent that I am authorized to act as a representative of Requestor and to enter into the commitments undertaken in this request.
