.天主教 is an IDN Community gTLD being proposed in ICANN's New gTLD Program. The applicant is Pontificium Consilium de Comunicationibus Socialibus,[1] which is the media and communications arm of the Vatican. It has applied for three IDN versions of its English (.catholic) TLD. The scripts represented are Arabic (.كاثوليك), Russian (.католик), and Hans Chinese (.天主教).

It will be a Closed TLD, "Use [..] may be granted at the sole discretion of the PCCS to an affiliate such as recognised dioceses, religious orders and Catholic Church-affiliated institutions. The PCCS maintains a list of affiliates formally recognised by the Holy See as being part of the Catholic Church and thus being eligible to be granted use of a [Catholic IDN domain name]."[2]


【.天主教】将是一个封闭的顶级域名并将由委员会授权全权处理其相关机构如教区,教会及与天主教堂相关的各协会事物。委员会将保留一份由罗马教廷(Holy See)认可的机构名单。这些机构被视为天主教堂的一部分并将有资格被授权使用“国际(音译的)天主教域名”。
