NEWS! .travel LIMITED LAUNCH THIRD AND FINAL PHASE TO COMMENCE DECEMBER 2nd, 2005!


OUR MISSION
Tralliance Corporation is the Registry for the .travel sponsored top level domain name (sTLD). The .travel sTLD is designed to serve the global travel and tourism community by developing products and services that promote the efficiencies and convenience of e-commerce for all bona fide travel companies and tourism organizations on the Internet.

The major aims of the .travel sTLD are improved Internet identity, creation of advanced distribution channels, and the establishment of an ever-stronger level of trust between the industry and its customers.

The key features of a .travel sTLD are:
  • Authentication of a registrant’s industry credentials and name(s) eligibility by an independent third party;
  • Improved identity through a domain name that lifts a registrant’s business out of the anonymity of today’s Internet;
  • Inclusion in the first central, global online directory based on unique vocabulary to precisely match providers of travel products and services with consumers worldwide – www.directory.travel ;
  • Registration of domain names that reflect a registrant’s right to a name, which removes cybersquatting and domain name speculation in the travel sector;
  • A thick registry, with improved “Whois data”; and
  • A review process that includes provision for resolution of eligibility and name selection denial issues, supplementing the ICANN dispute resolution policies.
.travel will empower the broad spectrum of the travel industry – from the smallest to the largest players – to better promote their products and services within a universal framework on the Internet.
