Proposed .post Business Model

Open: 06 September 07
Closed: 06 October 07

Explanation: The Universal Postal Union (UPU) has written to ICANN outlining its intended business model for the new .post generic top-level domain. Certain aspects of these terms relate to the UPU’s status as an intergovernmental organization (IGO). The letter invites public examination and comment at an early stage of the negotiation. Negotiations will continue and comments made regarding this material will be taken into account as they are received.

The UPU proposes, among other things, that it be allowed supply second-level domains to its member countries (Designated Operators, or DOs) and that they be allowed to supply domains under them for no charge and without going through ICANN-accredited registrars.
