DotAsia and .Asia Registry Policies are generally developed with an open consultation process. Draft policies are developed, posted publicly and circulated to seek feedback and comments from members, Advisory Council and the public at large.

As part of the Sponsored gTLD agreement with ICANN, DotAsia is responsible for policy development in a number of areas (Appendix S, Part 2. Delegated Authority – http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/registries/asia/appendix-s-06dec06-en.htm#2), including for example:

  • Establishment of domain naming conventions
  • Reservation of names to be withheld from reservation in the TLD (in addition to those names reserved by ICANN and set forth in a schedule by ICANN)
  • Reservation of names to be offered for registration other than on a first-come, first-served basis and creation of the policies and procedures under which such names may be registered
  • Policies regarding eligibility to register a domain name in the TLD and restrictions and policies on how registered names may be used, which need not be uniform for all names within the TLD
  • Procedures and schedule for the start-up or any subsequent sunrise policies and procedures
  • Organizational governance policies and operations management will be formulated and maintained by the DotAsia Organisation
  • Any other policies or practices not inconsistent with the Agreement, ICANN Temporary Specifications and Policies, or Consensus Policy
