Application Details

Excerpted from response to question # 18 in TLD Application:

"Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (ʺWalmartʺ) serves customers and members around the world. Walmartʹs mission and founding principle is ʺsaving people money to help them live better,ʺ and Walmart has been recognized as a leader in sustainability, philanthropy, and employment opportunity. In the U.S., Walmart operates more than 4,400 retail facilities, including Walmart Stores and Samʹs Club warehouses. Walmart International operates more than 5,200 retail units in 27 countries outside the U.S. Walmart.com has been known for bringing the convenience, quality merchandise, and low prices of Walmart to the Internet. Walmart content is accessible in multiple TLDs, including the .COM, .NET, and .ORG gTLDs, and the .CA, .CO.UK, and .US ccTLDs.

Launched in 2008, Yihaodian has become one of the leading B2C e-commerce companies in China. Offering more than 180,000 products, Yihaodian runs logistics centers in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Wuhan, and Chengdu, along with delivery stations in 34 cities across China. Yihaodian is one of the fastest growing companies in China, and has earned first place for Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific, and first place for China Entrepreneur Magazineʹs Future Stars of China Enterprises in 2011. Through innovation, Yihaodian is committed to bringing its customers a new lifestyle of one-stop online shopping and services with superior experience.

In recent years, Walmart has invested heavily in global eCommerce in order to reach more customers. In 2010, Walmart consolidated its eCommerce activities around the world in a Global eCommerce Division. Walmart understands the impact that changing technology has had on retail and has dedicated eCommerce platforms around the world; the investments made in these platforms are helping to accelerate Walmartʹs growth in other markets.

The intended future mission and purpose of the .一号店 gTLD is to serve as a trusted, hierarchical, and intuitive namespace for the benefit of Yihaodianʹs customers and Internet users in general. Walmart will be the entity to bring the .一号店 gTLD to market and is also applying for .WALMART, .ASDA, and .SAMSCLUB (the Walmart family of gTLDs).

Although ICANN has not recognized a .BRAND gTLD specification in the current version of the Applicant Guidebook, it is widely anticipated within the brand owner community that this will become a specialty subset of new gTLDs. The .一号店 gTLD was planned as a .BRAND gTLD, with the goal of protecting Yihaodianʹs online presence and identity, expanding its marketing and promotional efforts, providing a secure channel for products and information online, and offering a platform on which to consolidate many of its intellectual property activities.

Walmart intends to initially limit registration and use of domain names within the .一号店 gTLD to Walmart, Yihaodian and Walmart’s qualified subsidiaries and affiliates. This initial use will allow Walmart to establish its operations and achieve full sustainability. This limited distribution, coupled with the other requirements set forth in Specification 9 of the template Registry Agreement, is intended to exempt Walmart from its annual Code of Conduct Compliance requirements."[2]

.一号店 是一个国际化品牌顶级域名。该域名已被纳入ICANN新通用顶级域计划中。域名申请方为沃尔玛股份有限公司,[3]并由Verisign负责提供后台注册服务。

申请细节

节选自顶级域申请问题18的回复:

"沃尔玛股份有限公司(以下简称“沃尔玛”)是一家服务于全球客户及会员的公司。它的使命和经营准则是“在帮助客户节约金钱的同时提高生活品质"。沃尔玛被视为可持续发展、慈善公益及创造就业机会方面的领军企业。在美国,沃尔玛经营超过4400家零售店,包括沃尔玛超市和山姆仓储式超市。同时,沃尔玛在美国以外的27个国家经营超过5200家零售店。Walmart.com通常与便捷、品质及低价相挂钩。公司相关信息可以通过含以下后缀的域名获得:.com、 .net、 .org 以及.ca、 .co.uk和 .us。

在2008年启动的一号店已经成为中国领先的B2C电子商务公司之一。一号店提供的产品数量超过18万,其物流中心分布在上海、北京、广州、武汉和成都,配送站分布在中国的34座城市。一号店是中国发展速度最快的公司之一,并在2011年赢得“德勤高科技、高成长亚太500强”首位及中国企业家杂志的“中国企业未来之星”的首位。一号店致力于通过创新为顾客带来一站式网络购物的新型生活方式和优质的服务体验。 近年来,沃尔玛在全球化电子商务方面投入重金以获得更多客户。在2010年,沃尔玛将其全球电子商务活动整合并入一个全球电子商务部门。沃尔玛清楚科技发展对零售的影响,因此在全球成立了专门的电子商务平台;对这些平台进行的投资将有助于加速沃尔玛在其他市场的增长。 【.一号店】这个通用顶级域名未来将建设成为一个可信赖、分级且直观的命名空间,并服务于一号店的顾客和互联网用户。沃尔玛将作为【.一号店】的市场推广实体。此外它还申请了 .WALMART、 .ASDA、以及.SAMSCLUB 这样的“沃尔玛家族域名”。

尽管ICANN还没有在当前版本的《申请人指南》中确认有关.brand通用顶级域的规范,品牌所有者社区却普遍预测.brand通用顶级域将成为新通用顶级域下的一个独立子集。【.一号店】这个通用顶级域就是根据.brand通用顶级域的构成方式进行设计的,目的是保护一号店的网络市场和身份、拓展其营销和促销业绩、为在线产品和信息提供一个有安全渠道以及提供一个可以整合其众多知识产权活动的平台。 沃尔玛意在限制在通用顶级域名【.一号店】之下的域名注册及使用,限制范围包括沃尔玛、一号店以及其他沃尔玛授权的附属机构。这一举措将帮助沃尔玛建立一套完整的运行及维持机制。该限量分配举措外加注册局协议模板中规范9中列出的其他要求,可以免除沃尔玛受其每年《合规行为准则》要求的约束。”[4]
