3mn .travel domain names released

Three million travel destinations have been released for immediate registration, including cities; towns; heritage, iconic and sacred sites; national parks and other landmarks.
“Until now, the registration of millions of .travel domain names representing tourist destinations were restricted to governments and tourism boards,” says Tom Barrett, President of EnCirca. “But now, these restrictions have been relaxed. These valuable .travel domain names can be registered today on a first-come, first-served basis to any travel-related company who can demonstrate valid use of their desired travel destination.”

.travel is the only Internet top-level domain name that allows government bodies and tourism boards to claim place names that correspond to cities, towns, heritage sites, pilgrim centers, sacred sites, national parks/preserves, and any other geographic location located in their region.

Governments and tourism boards may still claim their .travel destination names by contacting EnCirca ( http://www.encirca.com ). But governments will need to hurry since these names are now available on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration of country-specific names in .travel remains the exclusive right of the national governments to claim and use for tourism-related activity.
Eligibility for these released travel place names are restricted to bona fide travel and tourism organizations who can demonstrate actual use of the desired .travel domain names.

Travel and tourism organizations are advised to quickly become authenticated and register using EnCirca’s real-time registration interface.
