Topic: Country-Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs)

sheath writes "The straw pole for the creation of geek.nz second level domain (2LD) has just finished. The results were 89.77% in favour with a total turn out of over one thousand New Zealanders.>

The .nz policy has this as a key milestone but it still needs to have a formal submission process then InternetNZ council votes on the proposal. Should all go well in about 3-4 months the new 2LD will be live. Using the documented policy (PDF), A bit of hard work, patience and a $1,000 NZ fee (approx $500 US) is all it takes for .nz. The flipside of the ICANN process."

"The .nz policy shows how working with the local internet community works and how bottom up process with a mixture of 'governance' does work."
