Changes to .Asia Charter Eligibility Requirement Policies to Accept Registrations Globally
On February 28th, 2017, DotAsia Organisation closed the public comment period on the update and opening up of .Asia Charter Eligibility Requirement Policies for the .Asia extension. We would like to thank all those who have sent us their public comments and expressions of support.
.Asia will be announcing the finalized policy and guidelines to our registrar partners very soon. The new .Asia Charter Eligibility Requirement Policies will accept registrations globally from entities seeking to serve the Asia Pacific community. Through this update, the registry hopes to:
Currently, registrants are still required to either submit legal entity information from the region (the CED contact) OR submit a postal address within Asia (the CEA contact) to successfully register a .Asia domain.
- open up registrations to global communities doing business with the region
- open up registrations to Asian communities living outside of the region
- make .Asia TLD implementations easier for registrar channel partners located outside of Asia, and
- simplify the registration process for new registrants worldwide.
The finalized changes in the Charter Eligibility Requirement Policy will allow for "entities seeking relationship or presence in Asia" to register a .Asia domain without a pre-existing address or registered ID. This means that registrants everywhere seeking, but have not yet established, a presence within Asia, under this updated policy, will be able to register a .Asia domain.
