paris is a new geographical gTLD proposal from Ville de Paris (City of Paris) to ICANN's new gTLD expansion program to serve as a dedicated online space for Paris and promote its businesses, culture and tourism. The .paris TLD initiative was first initiated in 2007 by Sébastien Bachollet, a French citizen and a member of the ICANN Board. [1]

The City of Paris announced its plan to apply for the .paris TLD in June 2008. INDOM served as consultant for the .paris project, which was launched by Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoë and Deputy Mayor Jean-Louis Missika in 2009. They also launched a website and a PR and commnunications campaign to encourage the Parisian community to support the project. [2] [3]

Following the launching of the .paris project, the City of Paris selected the partnership of AFNIC-CORE to provide technical support for the .paris TLD application to ensure its approval from ICANN. AFNIC is a non-profit organization serving as registry operator for .fr (France) country code top level domain name (ccTLD) and several French territories including .re (Reunion Island), .yt (Mayotte), .wf (Wallis and Futuna), .tf (French Southern Territories) and .pm (Saint-Pierre and Miquelon). On the other hand, CORE is a Swiss-based non-profit organization offering registrar services accredited by ICANN. [4] [5]
