European Cultural & Linguistic Internet Domains

I support the European Cultural & Linguistic Internet Domains.

ECLID was introduced to the European Parliament on the 24th of August. The introduction to European cultural and linguistic Top Level Domains was followed by a debate on the benefits of these initiatives : what they provide to their communities.

Members are .BZH / .CYM / .EUS / .GAL / .SCOT and .CAT

TLD list updated with IDNs is a list I maintain with Top-Level Domains projects. Many listings do exist but none are up to date. I mean here many projects were announced but part of them now have their web site down or the domain name is just cyber-squatted.

The Internationalized Domain Names were missing to my list so you will find the link to the official list of Internationalized Domain Names ccTLD fast track string evaluation completion here :

Note this list is maintained by ICANN with primary string requested, country of request and contact details of requester.

.VEN not allowed ?

In Draft Applicant Guidebook, I read :

"Applications for strings that are country or territory names will not be approved, as they are not available under the New gTLD Program in this application round. A string shall be considered to be a country or territory name if : it is an alpha-3 code listed in the ISO 3166-1 standard."

"VEN" is listed in the alpha-3 code listed in ISO 3166-1 for Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. I am lucky "VIN" is not listed there.
