Application Details

The following is excerpted from the applicant's response to question #18:

"MTR Corporation Limited intends to apply for the TLD .MTR for the purpose of branding and exclusive internal use. Nevertheless, understanding that operating a TLD means operating a critical part of the Internet, MTR Corporation Limited is committed to promoting competition, consumer trust, and consumer choice. While contemplating applying for our own TLD, MTR Corporation Limited and its consultant Hong Kong Internet Registration Corporation Limited (HKIRC) identified a number of issues that are related to the said commitment, including consumer protection, security, stability and resilience, malicious abuse issues, sovereignty concerns, and rights protection. MTR Corporation Limited is also committed to enforcing the existing policy relating to WHOIS, subject to the laws of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

In view of our said commitments, MTR Corporation Limited has adopted the mission of operating a world-class, trusted, resilient and robust, stable and secure, domain name space that is an integral part of the Internet.

In our subsequent responses in this application, we will demonstrate how our proposed operational, technical, and financial plans for .MTR will address the issues pertaining to our commitments."[3]
