Application Details

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

"The new .genting gTLD will operate as a restricted registry, in which Resorts World Inc Pte. Ltd. (Resorts World) can create and control domain spaces that promote its “Genting” brand identity and authenticity. In this regard, the .genting gTLD will be used by Resorts World to provide information, services and resources of the Genting Group of companies (Genting Group) to consumers in a way that promotes trust, convenience and utility. The .genting gTLD will provide an authoritative internet space for Resorts World, its affiliates and partners that are associated with the “Genting” brand. Second and third level domains can then be utilised for internet sales, marketing and communicating purposes, with internet users assured of brand authenticity.

Resorts World, established in 2009, is part of the Genting Group, which was established in 1965. Based in Hong Kong and Singapore, Resort World’s principal activities are in investment holding and licensing of intellectual property rights, including the promotion of the “Genting” brand and related intellectual property rights, to increase global brand equity for the Genting Group. The Genting Group is recognised as one of Asia’s leading and best-managed multinational companies involved in businesses, including leisure and hospitality, power generation, oil palm plantation, property development, biotechnology and oil and gas. The Genting Group currently comprises of 5 publicly listed companies in 3 different jurisdictions operating under the “Genting” brand with a combined market capitalisation of over RM 125 billion (USD40.5 billion) as at February 2012. Collectively, the Genting Group has over 58,000 employees. The Genting Group’s commitment to excellence, innovation and growth has helped in the establishment of its premier global brand names such as the “Genting” brand. In this regard, consumer trust and continuous innovation are paramount considerations in Resort World’s application for the .genting gTLD."[2]
