.pars is a gTLD delegated in ICANN's New gTLD Program on 7 December 2015. Asia Green IT System Bilgisayar San. ve Tic. Ltd. Sti. manages the string and its registry.[1][2] It is a Community Priority Application.

The TLD refers to Persion people and culture. "The term ‘Pars’ (Pârs: پارس) refers to the original homeland of the Persian people. The native name of the Persian language is Fârsi or Pârsi. Persia and Persian both derive from the Hellenized form Πέρσις Persis of the root word Pârs. The Old Persian word was Pârsa...Asia Green IT System Bilgisayar San. ve Tic. Ltd. Sti. (AGITSys) was founded by individuals of Persian origin who derive a great sense of honor from their community, history and ancestry. AGITSys’ founders have gathered together a team with extensive experience in Persian language on the Internet, a daunting but critical task."

Registration of the TLD will require the registrant to declare their connection to the Persian ethnic, linguistic and cultural community. "We will also require registrants to ensure that websites hosted under these domain names contain Persian scripts to promote the Persian language as a valuable resource of the Persian Community. AGITSYS will explore the use of automated measures to search for and evaluate the use of Persian scripts on websites registered in the .PARS gTLD. Those registrants who do not comply with the usage requirements above will have punitive action taken against them, potentially leading to their website being de-listed."[3]
