Application Details

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

"Amazon intends for its new .ROOM gTLD to provide a unique and dedicated platform for stable and secure online communication and interaction. Provide a complete description of the applicant’s intended registration policies in support of the goals above Amazon’s Intellectual Property group will be responsible for the development, maintenance and enforcement of a Domain Management Policy. The Domain Management Policy will define (i) the rules associated with eligibility and domain name allocation, (ii) the license terms governing the use of a .ROOM domain name, and (iii) the dispute resolution policies for the .ROOM gTLD. Amazon will continually update the Domain Management Policy as needed to reflect Amazon’s business goals and, where appropriate, ICANN consensus policies. Registration of a domain name in the .ROOM registry will be undertaken in four steps: (i) Eligibility Confirmation, (ii) Naming Convention Check, (iii) Acceptable Use Review, and (iv) Registration. All domains in the .ROOM registry will remain the property of Amazon.


Amazon’s Intellectual Property group reserves the right to revoke a license to use a .ROOM domain name, at any time, if any use of a .ROOM domain name violates the Domain Management Policy."[3]
