Alt Root Foundation is inscribed in the Dutch Chamber of Commerce, as foundation with non-profit objective.
ICANN is (to our knowledge) inscribed nowhere, it is a branch of the American Ministry of Commerce. ICANN wiki: http://icannwiki.com/index.php/U.S._Congress
The proof we can do it
Proof: download the browser from multiwebsphere.com or straight here and watch in that browsers sites like http://art.art, http://berlin.berlin etc.
The first company that wanted to partner with us, in the experimental stage at the beginning of 2011, wat 'Multiwebsphere', a German-Dutch internet company. They succesfully applied for the extension .berlin (an extension that was constantly rejected in its applications, by ICANN).
Especially the site berlin.berlin has been worked out, and is visible after downloading the multiwebsphere browser on their site. Soon the will release a plug-in as well, for all browsers, so you can keep using your favourite browser. Why a separate browser or plug in is still needed (which will not be the case anymore in nearby future) you can read under 'Technical'
What is possible for you now?
You can register any .berlin name you like, starting on Sunday evening 11 November 2012 21:45 hrs CEST time by sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Likewise - send an email to email@example.com
As organisation, individual, country, city, region, product: do you want your own domain extension? It is possible! Come to us.
What does it take?
- 50.000 USD application fee
- our approval of your plans (95% success if it is just sensible)
It takes us about 3 months to realize. For pros and cons, read further.
There after, domain names can be registered, and websites can be hosted.
The new domains will at least be visible through:
the Mutliwebsphere browser, fit to see alt root domain names as well as IANA domain names
the SEARZ search engine, where the 'second internet'/ alt root sites are indexed as well as seen.
