.airforce is a proposed TLD in ICANN's New gTLD Program. The applicant is Demand Media (United TLD Holdco Ltd.).[1]

GAC Early Warnings

The application was issued three GAC Early Warnings, from The United States, Australia, and India. The warning system is noted as a strong recommendation on behalf of national governments to the ICANN Board that a given TLD application should be denied as it stands. Applicants are encouraged to work with objecting GAC members.[2]

The United States representative simply notes that the name is confusingly similar to an official government agency;[3] The Australian warning notes that this similarity will not only confuse end-users but negatively impact national armed forces services;[4] India adds that this will cause irreparable harm to the safety and security of the nation.[5] All three governments recommend that Demand Media withdraw the application. Similar warnings were made to their other military focused applications, such as .navy and .army.
