.QUEBEC LAUNCH PLAN OVERVIEW
Introduction: Nexus with the Québec community
All registrants of a .quebec domain name must be an individual or a legal entity with a connection to the
.quebec community. This connection means that the registrant of the domain name must be able to reason- ably demonstrate a link or an interest to the community at the time of registration and throughout the duration of the active registration. The link to the community can be on a linguistic, cultural, tourism, com- mercial, or any other basis that is conducive (and not detrimental) to the benefit of the Québec community.
Registrations under the .quebec TLD are intended to be made by bona-fide members of the Québec com- munity (as described above), and are subject to the further requirement that the registrant’s actions in the
.quebec community, as well as the registrant’s use of the registered domain name, must be:
I – generally accepted as legitimate; and
II – beneficial to the interest of the Québec community; and
III – commensurate with the role and importance of the registered domain name; and
IV – in good faith at the time of registration and throughout the duration of the active registration.
Pre-launch Phase: Pioneer Name Program
During the pre-launch phase, Registry Operator intends to conduct a Pioneer Program (subject to ICANN’s approval) for the purpose of promoting the .quebec TLD. Registry Operator intends to select and allow reg- istration of a maximum of (90) domain names under this program (“Pioneer Names”). Such Pioneer Names will be selected by the Registry Operator from among the eligible expressions of interests received, based on a criteria of visibility, notoriety and commitment to the promotion of the .quebec TLD.
The Launch Phase for .quebec will start on 2014-09-02 10:00:00 EDT (14:00:00 UTC) and will end on 2014-11-04 9:00:00 EST (14:00:00 UTC) .
During this single 63 calendar days period, four types or “categories” of applications will be accepted: three categories for registrants with prior rights, and an additional one for applications without prior rights (Landrush). Applications for all these 4 categories will be accepted simultaneously and will be allocated
at the end of this single 63-day Launch Phase window according to the hierarchy of priority status of each category, while always requiring community nexus.
