Domain petition : Need only 99,998 more signatures to drop .US nexus requirements

Directnic

Dot .US was the first ccTLD ever, to be allocated.

The dot .US Registry, operated by Neustar, is the official country code top-level domain (ccTLD) provider for the United States of America.

Dot .US is also the first allocated ccTLD, ever.

Restrictions to .US domain registrations include US citizenship or residency and other “nexus” rules:

Who can register a .US domain?

Any U.S. citizen or resident, as well as any business or organization, including federal, state, and local government with a bona fide presence in the United States can register a .US domain name. One of the following eligibility requirements must be met:

  • A natural person (i) who is a citizen or permanent resident of the United States of America or any of its possessions or territories or (ii) whose primary place of domicile is in the United States of America or any of its possessions, or
  • Any entity or organization that is incorporated within one of the fifty (50) U.S. states, the District of Columbia, or any of the United States possessions or territories or (ii) organized or otherwise constituted under the laws of a state of the United States of America, the District of Columbia, or any of its possessions or territories, or
  • An entity or organization (including federal, state, or local government of the United States, or a political subdivision thereof) that has a bona fide presence in the United States.

Not everyone is happy with these restrictions, and a NamePros domain investor is seeking to remove all such restrictions, by filing a petition at the White House.

In order for the White House to review the petition it must reach 100,000.00 signatures in 30 days. If this is met, according to the US Government, they will “Get an official update from the White House within 60 days”.

So far the petition has received 2 signatures, with 99,998 more to go.

Will it be possible to reach this 100k signature goal? 😀

    Seems to be moving slow. I’m surprised more people haven’t signed it yet.
