Call For Innovative Proposals To Be First .PARIS Domains

Dot Paris logoThe applicant for the .paris TLD has asked for ideas from those wanting to be the first registrants of .paris domains.

The City of Paris has launched the two calls for proposals to select the first 100 domain names to use the .paris gTLD.

The first call for proposals will allow applicants to have a domain name corresponding to their business or brand, with conditions appropriate to their status (major corporations, institutions, SMEs, startups, association, blogger, etc.). As well as gaining an exclusive domain name and high visibility, these pioneers will become ambassadors for the .paris gTLD and participate with Paris City Hall in building up recognition for the new namespace.

The 2nd call for proposals will allow candidates to introduce new intuitive and innovative services using domain names with the .paris gTLD, such as visite.paris or transport.paris.

Applicants are invited to register on mondomaine.paris.fr to be among the first 100 to use the .paris gTLD for their website. The first .paris web sites will go live in 2014.

Applicants have until 16 December, 2013 to file their domain name application, which will then be assessed according to various criteria. The first domain names with the .paris gTLD are scheduled go live in the second half of 2014.
