DotGreen Community, Inc. plans to launch and operate the .green TLD in an international and inclusive manner, working closely with all regions of the world in a collaborative fashion.
To get in touch with us now, fill out the below form.
DGC will reserve the country and territory 2nd level names contained in the following internationally recognized lists:
- The short form (in English) of all country and territory names contained on the ISO 3166-1 list
- The United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names, Technical Reference Manual for the Standardization of Geographical Names, Part III Names of Countries of the World
- 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
In addition to reserving all required geographic names around the world, DotGreen is interested in ensuring the global reach and positive influence of .green exists in all regions. DotGreen desires to work closely and collaboratively with specific countries and regions to find approved uses of reserved names that ensures the second level name is used in a manner that respects the specific country or regions’ desires while at the same time highlighting positive examples of green, sustainability, people and planet. The details of these projects will be coordinated by DotGreen directly with the respective countries or regions, gaining their advance approval prior to release of any names and by also engaging all appropriate ICANN entities including the ccNSO and the GAC.
In addition, if any country or region desires to use 3rd level names (i.e. parks.de.green, rainforest.cr.green), DotGreen will assist in those efforts.
An additional area where DotGreen desires to work with individual countries relates to the active use of green oriented domain names for government agencies. DotGreen would desire to see these domain names in active use or re-directed to main government websites. Examples would be the respective Environmental Protection Agencies in each country. DotGreen will work collaboratively with all countries to hold back these names from open registration to ensure the appropriate use by the proper entity. Eighteen initial internationalized domain name languages will be available at launch: Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Portugese, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.
