ICANN approved .melbourne GTLD

13 05 2013

Global internet regulator ICANN has announced that it has now approved the new GTLD .melbourne, making it one of the first new Australian GTLD applications to be approved.

All new GLTD need to pass an evaluation process before approval. The approval of .melbourne brings this new GTLD a step closer to going live.

The Victorian Government has not yet announced what the cost or eligibility criteria will be for the new extension, but it is anticipated that registration will only be open to businesses with a physical presence in Melbourne, Victoria.

Following a successful tender process Melbourne based ARI Registry Services won the tender to provide registry services for .melbourne. ARI Registry Services is part of the Ausregistry Group who provide registry services for .au domains.
