Application Details

The following is excerpted from the applicant's response to question #18:

"The .ALLSTATE gTLD registry will be a standard, not a community-based, registry. The .ALLSTATE gTLD registry will be a standard registry restricted to AFCIC and its qualified subsidiaries, affiliates, or business partners having the Required License (as defined below). For the avoidance of a doubt, the registry will be closed to registrants who do not have a formal, written trademark license agreement from AFCIC’s affiliate, Allstate Insurance Company, specifically allowing the registration of a second-level domain name in the .ALLSTATE gTLD registry (the “Required License”). There will be no market for second-level registrations outside of registrants that are affiliated with AFCIC and⁄or that have the Required License.

The Allstate Corporation and their affiliated companies (collectively, “the Allstate Family” or “Allstate”) comprise a leading insurance group that provides insurance products for autos, apartments, homes, recreational vehicles, motorcycles, boats, personal property, lives and businesses across the country (http:⁄⁄www.allstate.com⁄about.aspx). Allstate is the largest publicly-held personal lines property and casualty insurance group in America with 12,000 agents and operations throughout the United States, Canada, and in the UK. Affiliates of Allstate include, but are not limited to Esurance and Answer Financial."[2]
