Re: Overview: (What If?) ccTLD Delegation Question
In article <20051003221313.CE8B032C015@smtpauth01.csee.siteprotect.com>, Joe Johnson <firstname.lastname@example.org> writes
So, basically, following the instructions at http://www.iana.org/cctld/cctld-establishment-procedures-19mar03.htm, I need to be sure I legally acquire the island from a nation for the express purpose of running my own country (the sales agreement says I am no longer part of them). After I establish my national government (I held an impromptu straw-poll in the office, and we chose "Joetopia" as the name of my island nation), I need to petition the UN to be recognized as a nation and be listed in their report. After that, I automatically get a 2-letter nation code and can petition ICANN for a ccTLD of my 2-letter code. I can then choose to run .jt (or whatever my ccTLD ends up being) from any place I desire.You could also try asking the Isle of Man (.im) Guernsey (.gg) and Jersey (.je) how they managed to get a ccTLD without being an ISO country. I won't mention .eu, as that will probably start a furore.
