'''.paris''' is a new [[GeoTLD|geographical gTLD]] proposal from [[Ville de Paris]] (City of Paris) to [[ICANN]]'s [[New gTLD Program|new gTLD expansion program]] to serve as a dedicated online space for Paris and to promote its businesses, culture and tourism. The .paris TLD initiative was first initiated in 2007 by [[Sébastien Bachollet]], a French citizen and a member of the [[ICANN Board]]. <ref>[ The .Paris A Real Project]</ref>
The City of Paris announced its plan to apply for the .paris TLD in June 2008. [[INDOM]] served as consultant for the .paris project, which was launched by Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoë and Deputy Mayor Jean-Louis Missika in 2009. They also launched a [ '''website'''] and a PR and commnunications communications campaign to encourage the Parisian community to support the project. <ref>[ Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoë and Deputy Mayor Jean-Louis Missika launch .PARIS]</ref> <ref>[ DotParis official website now open]</ref><ref>[ Cest Quoi Le Paris,]</ref>
Following the launching of the .paris project, the City of Paris selected the partnership of [[AFNIC]]-& [[CORE]] to provide technical support for the .paris TLD application to ensure its approval from by ICANN. AFNIC is a non-profit organization serving as the registry operator for France's [[.fr]] (France) ccTLD|country code top level domain name ]] ([[]]) and several French territories including [[.re]] (Reunion Island), [[.yt]] (Mayotte), [[.wf]] (Wallis and Futuna), [[.tf]] (French Southern Territories) and [[.pm]] (Saint-Pierre and Miquelon). On the other hand, CORE is a Swiss-based non-profit organization offering registrar services accredited by ICANN. <ref>[ AFNIC/CORE chosen by the Ville de Paris to manage the .paris extension]</ref> <ref>[ About CORE]</ref>
