    • Get ready for thousands of new two-letter domains

      New gTLD registry operators have been given the right to start selling two-letter domains that match country codes. Potentially thousands of names could start being released next year, resulting in a windfall for registries and possible opportunities for investors.

  • Buy it or lose it? Governments could get first dibs on two-letter domains

    … either. It does, however, oblige registries to ban registrants from pretending to be affiliated with the relevant government when they are not. Governments also get to complain, and registries have to investigate, if the relevant domains are causing “confusion”, though registries do not appear to be under a strict obligation to delete or suspend domains.
