IDN ccTLD Fast Track String Evaluation Completion

The IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process was launched on 16 November 2009. As of that date eligible countries and territories were able to request their respective IDN ccTLD(s) through the process.

The process entails three steps: (i) Preparations in country/territory (ii) String Evaluation, and (iii) String Delegation.

All steps are described in detail in the Final Implementation Plan [PDF, 498K].

The IDN ccTLDs and associated details listed in the below table represent those IDN ccTLD requests that have successfully completed Step 2: String Evaluation.

  • The primary string(s) represent the string that the requester now may seek for IDN ccTLD delegation.
  • The desired variant string(s) are strings allocated to the requester. This does not mean that they will be delegated in the DNS root zone. They will be allocated to the requester in order to be reserved to the entitled manager for potential future delegation in the DNS root zone.

The corresponding countries and territories are hence free to enter Step 3: String Delegation, for the listed primary string(s).
