.corsica is a proposed TLD in ICANN's New gTLD Program. Collectivité Territoriale de Corse manages the TLD and is its Registry. The proposed application succeeded and was delegated to the Root Zone on 16 May, 2015.[1].[2]

It is a ethno-geographic TLD dedicated to the people and culture of Corsica and individuals and businesses that identify in or through them. The applicant is the Collectivité Territoriale de Corse (CTC), which is the regional Government of Corsica, and as is states in its application, "without doubt, the most legitimate entity representing the interests of the Corsican people." Corsica is one of the 22 regions of France.

Firm registration policies were not outlined in its application, however it promised to create a charter before implementation with input from AFNIC and a third party consultant, which is subject to approval by the Corsican parliament. "The charter will aim to be sufficiently open encourage large numbers of registrations from legitimate content and service providers, but sufficiently restrictive and with sufficient provisos to protect the TLD against all types of abusive behaviour. It will contain a complete description of the procedures in case of dispute over a domain name."[3]
