'''.paris''' is a new [[GeoTLD]] 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 to promote its businesses, culture and tourism. The .paris TLD initiative was developed in 2007 by [[Sébastien Bachollet]], a French citizen and a member of the [[ICANN Board]], and other French ICANN regulars.<ref>[http://www.domainesinfo.fr/extension/1200/paris-le-paris-un-vrai-projet.php The .Paris A Real Project].

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 communications campaign to encourage the Parisian community to support the project.<ref>[http://www.stephanevangelder.com/archives/294-Paris-Mayor-Bertrand-Delano-and-Deputy-Mayor-Jean-Louis-Missika-launch-.PARIS.html Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoë and Deputy Mayor Jean-Louis Missika launch .PARIS].

Walter sued to stop the transfer, stating that Paris was attempting reverse domain name hijacking. In July 2012, a U.S. federal district court entered a default judgment against Ville de Paris, of $100,000 for reverse domain name hijacking and tortious interference. They were also ordered to pay an additional $26,830 in attorney's fees and costs.<ref>[http://domainnamewire.com/2012/09/17/city-of-paris-ordered-to-pay-100k-for-reverse-domain-name-hijacking/ City of Paris ordered to pay $100k for reverse domain name hijacking].

Following the launching of the .paris project, the City of Paris selected [[AFNIC]] & [[CORE]] to provide technical support for the .paris TLD application to ensure its approval by ICANN. AFNIC is a non-profit organization serving as the registry operator for France's [[ccTLD|country code top level domain name]] ([[.fr]]) and several French territories including [[.re]] (Reunion Island), [[.yt]] (Mayotte), [[.wf]] (Wallis and Futuna), [[.tf]] (French Southern Territories) and [[.pm]] (Saint-Pierre and Miquelon).
