Application Details

Excerpted from applicant response to question #18 in TLD application:

"The benefits of the .همراه (.hamrah) gTLD will be manifold, not just to registrants but also to tens of millions of Persian internet users, as well as many others with an interest in or curiosity regarding Persia. The presence of a Persian-specific gTLD will increase the volume of online Persian resources, as the emergence of the .همراه (.hamrah) second-level domains sees a marked increase in the use of Persian script online – which should in turn create further demand. In terms of goals in the areas of specialty, service levels, and reputation for the proposed .همراه (.hamrah) gTLD, AGITSys is committed to offering choice in top level domain extensions among Persians and readers of Persian script. Asia Green IT System Bilgisayar San. ve Tic. Ltd. Sti. (AGITSys) recognizes many new gTLDs will naturally have a relatively narrow appeal and audience. The .همراه (.hamrah) gTLD is different, as it not only targets a distinct online community, but one that spans the globe. Therefore, AGITSys is prepared to utilize its home market of Turkey as a leading source of registrants and sites, while incorporating the power of the web to connect with myriad other registrants and Internet users beyond Turkey. Further, we intend to adopt and follow the highest standards in registry operations exceeding service levels and expectations thus producing a consistent reputation.

[..]

AGITSys will not tolerate radical content, nor will it tolerate content that criticizes Persia and the Persian culture. Immediate and severe action will be taken against registrants promulgating either, and a black list will be created in an attempt to pre-empt any such attempts.[2]

PIC

b. Registry Operator will not tolerate any illegitimate and non-legal activity such as terrorism, online counterfeiting and piracy; and radical content. Immediate and severe action will be taken against registrants promulgating either, and a black list will be created in an attempt to pre-empt any such attempts.
c. While the Registry Operator cannot guaranty to prevent all illegitimate and non-legal activities, but will do all possible or utmost to prevent these activities by implementing protection measures for registrations to ensure an abuse free environment whilst maintaining choice."[3]
