Once the domain is registered

All .travel domain names registered with us are stored on our international server. Domains registered with us are automatically provided with their own under-construction page - this notifies potential registrants that the name has been acquired and is now registered. The under-construction page is offered free of charge and may be used indefinitely.

It is possible for Web and/or Mail forwarding to be provided for .travel domains.

Domain transfer/release fees are charged are by a majority of registrars, but BB Online make no charge to transfer a domain to another .travel domain name registrar.

Background

A few travel-related sites are up in this domain as of late 2005

 

Important Note:
Some domain names may be classified by the registry as a premium domain name and will command a higher price. If you request a premium domain name we will contact you before completing your order.

In addition, the registry may at any time reserve domain names from registration or the sale may be restricted to comply with ICANN requirements.

.travel is a top-level domain approved by ICANN on April 8, 2005, as a sponsored TLD in the second group of new TLD applications evaluated in 2004. It is restricted to the use of travel agents, airlines, bed and breakfast operators, tourism bureaus, and others in the travel industry. It is sponsored by Tralliance Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of TheGlobe.com.

ICANN's independent evaluators recommended against approval of Tralliance's application to sponsor .travel, but ICANN's Board of Directors approved the delegation of .travel on April 8, 2005. Also on April 8, 2005, travel journalist and consumer advcate Edward Hasbrouck made a request under ICANN's bylaws that the decision to approve .travel be referred to an independent review panel charged with determining whether that decision was made in a manner consistent with ICANN's bylaws on openness and transparency, and that the decision be stayed pending independent review. Those requests remain pending.

The official launch began in October 2005, with a screening process to determine eligibility to register domains in each of three monthly groups for October, November, and December. Normal registrations began in January 2006.

The first organization to launch a website utilizing the domain name is the Egyptian Tourist Authority, with their website "http://www.egypt.travel". The site was launched in March of 2006 and is intended to be a one-stop shop for information on Egypt.

Registrations are processed via accredited registrars.
