.ntt is a Brand TLD delgated in ICANN's New gTLD Program. NIPPON TELEGRAPH AND TELEPHONE CORPORATION manages the TLD and is its Registry. The proposed application succeeded and was delegated to the Root Zone on 03 February, 2015.[1][2] It does not appear to have selected registry provider, but merely notes in its application that "NTT intends to outsource the registry operation to a particular third party."

Application Details

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

As per our corporate branding, in addition to our worldʹs highest level broadband network infrastructure, we are promoting and enhancing the fiber-optic video services and the cloud computing services, driving enthusiastically to create new services, and well-positioning to serve the total ICT solutions globally. These ongoing progresses will allow us to deploy a new service⁄business model in the global market, bringing about a greater synergy among the NTT Group companies as a whole, and through that process we hope that .ntt will contribute in gaining recognition and building a new corporate image for NTT."[3]
