Application Details

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

"The term “rehab” is a generic and broadly used word that holds particular affinity for people, professionals and organizations interested and involved with a wide range of rehabilitation services. Global in scope, today a passionate group of millions of individuals and organizations identify with this word. The mission and purpose of the .rehab TLD is to establish an easily recognized and accessible namespace for this large and dynamic group.

The .rehab TLD is proposed by United TLD Holdco Ltd. (“United TLD”), a well-funded company established by highly experienced domain industry executives for the express purpose of securing the rights to operate a portfolio of TLDs that increase choice, expression, affinity and relevance for millions of consumers, businesses and other organizations on the web.

United TLD will be inclusive in its registration policies for this broad and generic TLD. We will not limit registrant eligibility for second-level registrations and will provide registration services to all legitimate registrants. However, we may elect to reserve and hold back certain strings from second-level registration at the time we launch the TLD.

We will not tolerate illegal activity in this TLD and will have strict policies and enforcement that provide for takedown or other appropriate forms of remedy. United TLD will adhere to and uphold all ICANN-required registration policies and comply with the requirements of the registration policy portion of the Registry Agreement. "[3]
