The following section provides a step-by-step process to be followed by Representatives when applying for Reserved names in the RNL.
The following Considerations MUST be taken into account. If not considered, it may lead to the rejection of an application:
Representatives must make use of the provided functionality on the RNL Portal to apply for the reservation of a name. Representatives are encouraged to obtain a full listing of the required information prior to applying for a name reservation. Information required for an application includes:
The following information is required regarding the Beneficiary of an application:
The Moderator will review all applications for reserved name and will approve or deny the application. Names that have multiple applications from different Representatives will be asked to resolve the matter between themselves. If more than one (1) application still remains by the Launch date, the applications will be forwarded to an AUC Review Panel for final decision making.
The Moderator may request additional information to be provided for an application. All additional information must be provided within a week (7 days) of the request being sent by the Moderator. Submission of additional documentation may be done through the RNL Portal or other means as specified by the Moderator.
In the event that the allowed seven (7) days expire and all the requested information has not been submitted, the application will NOT be considered for review by the Moderator, and will be rejected.
All applications that are in the Moderation step will have a status of "Pending Moderation" associated to them. This status indicates that the application is undergoing Moderation. Representatives may use this status to filter their searches for names that are currently in the Moderation phase.
In the event that an application has been moderated and approved for inclusion in the RNL, all associated parties will be notified of the success of the application. The application will now be a Reservation and the name will be listed as a Reserved Name.
In the event that an application has been rejected, the Moderator will notify all associated parties of the outcome of the application as well as the reason(s) for rejection.
In the event that there were multiple applications for the same name and the applications were forwarded for decision making by the AUC Review Panel, the Moderator will act on the instruction given by the Review Panel and inform the associated parties accordingly. The reasons for rejection of all-but-one applications are those of the AUC Review Panel and NOT the Moderator.
This functionality will be made available soon. Government Representatives must register first and domains must be accepted into the RNL to display data here. Please check back soon!
