Re-assignment of pre-registered aero-domainsWritten by Hans-Peter Oswald
ICANN accredited Registrar Secura announces today, that Secura as registrar supports all steps, which SITA has made, in order to pre-register industrial codes of aviation community as aero-domains. Eligible companies (airlines and airports) can now register pre-registered domains at https://www.domainregistry.de/aero.html (English) or https://www.domainregistry.de/aero-domains.html (German).
SITA, sponsor of .aero, has announced changes in domain registration policy. All domain names corresponding to airline and airport codes are active
Following recommendation of Dot Aero Council, SITA activated all domain names corresponding to airline and airport industry codes. All two character airline codes, all location codes allocated to municipal areas and airports and all three letter airline codes of IATA airlines have been pre-registered. These new domain names are now "active" and work as web sites until time, eligible airline and airports assume responsibility and control of their domain names.
New rules for museum-domainsWritten by Hans Peter Oswald
The museum-domain is an exclusive domain. It is open for registration by museums, organization of museums and friends of museums. The notion of museum is understood very generously, e.g. a zoological or botanical garden belongs to it. A proof to be a museum is necessary for registering museum-domains.
ENS ID and Key You will get your eligibility to register .museum-domains not anymore only at MUSEDOMA, but you can order ENS ID and Confidential Key at Secura's museum-website while you are registering your first museum-domain (https://www.domainregistry.de/museum.html).
New Policy The museum domains have a new naming policy. In former times museum-domains had to have a third-level-structure in form specific.generic.museum. It was e.g. not possible to register moma.museum. The three-level-domains are persisting, but you can also register second level domains like guggenheim.museum. It is important, that second level domain is derived directly from official name of museum.
Digital Museum. Digital museums are eligible to register museum-domains. It is only logic, that digital museum get digital address of museums - museum-domain. The managers of digital museums can register at .museum or at virtual.museum, digital.museum, online.museum or cyber.museum - even at all second levels.
IDN: museum-domains with special characters You can order now museum-domains in many different languages. You can use special characters of your own language. One example for a domain with special characters: http://österreich.icom.museum
