The first gTLD located in Asia has been added to the root zone. .ASIA was added to the root overnight, becoming the 16 gTLD under contract with ICANN to be delegated. On 6 December 2006, ICANN and DotAsia signed the .ASIA registry agreement during the ICANN Annual Meeting in Sao Paulo, Brazil. DotAsia intends to launch the new TLD later this year.
Congratulations to the DotAsia Organisation on this achievement.
