Apply NOW for your Top-Level Domain(s)

TAS is the name of the Top-Level Domain Application System User Registration. To apply for your domain name extension, you will need to submit your entire application through this tool and pay the fees.


Not ready?

Well...you still have 3 months to prepare and find:
  • "Money" and a good bank account;
  • A back end registry provider for your technical operations;
  • Lawyer(s);
  • A service provider unless you operate your entire TLD yourself;
  • A service provider for your communication: PR and marketing (unless you want to do it yourself);
  • A DNS service provider unless you have your own network but I doubt it;
  • "Sellers" or Registrars unless you do not plan to sell domain names;
  • An external validation agent;
  • An escrow provider because ICANN wants to;
  • Someone able to manage auctions if part of your plans are to auction domain names.
Good luck.

nb: TAS opened today.
