ICANN Yokohama Meeting Topic: Introduction of New Top-Level Domains
Expression of Interest #5

Posted: 9 July 2000


This document serves to notify ICANN and the US Department of Commerce that Higgs Communications intends to continue to pursue the top level domain name applications that were filed by Simon Higgs in 1995/1996.

All applications cited below are acknowledged in "The IANA's File of iTLD Requests", which was submitted to the International Ad Hoc Committee (IAHC) by Jon Postel of the IANA on Dec 5, 1996, and is available for review at the following URL:

The following top level domain applications were filed in accordance with RFC1591, and per the directed instructions of IANA. Each application was submitted to "hostmaster@internic.net" using the applicable domain name template. InterNIC provided tracking numbers and also provided email confirming that the request had been forwarded to the IANA for delegation. In addition, duplicate requests containing the InterNIC tracking number were sent directly to the IANA, per instructions provided by Jon Postel. The InterNIC tracking numbers are noted alongside each request.

P.S. & Additional notes:

Simon Higgs has worked extensively in the area of new top level domains, and collaborated with Jon Postel on the original "Postel Draft" plans for introducing new registries and new top level domains. Mr Higgs was the first to define the 'shared top level domain registry/registrar' concept (SRS) in an internet draft entitled "Top Level Domain Classification and Categorization". He also founded the first mailing list 'shared-tld' to specifically discuss the feasibility of shared registry/registrar protocols.
