The string translates as "wine" from French. The registry is managed by Donuts.[http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/application-results/strings-1200utc-13jun12-en Reveal Day 13 June 2012 – New gTLD Applied-For Strings][http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/delegated-strings Delegated Strings] The application received 2 [[GAC]] Early Warnings, from France and Luxembourg. The warning system is noted as a strong recommendation on behalf of national governments to the [[ICANN Board]] that a given TLD application should be denied as it stands. Applicants are encouraged to work with objecting GAC members.[http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/applicants/gac-early-warning GAC Early Warning, NewgTLDS.ICANN.org] Retrieved 26 Nov 2012 The warnings are nearly identical and state that the applicant should consider withdrawal or implement an objection procedure to consider geographical indications, as "vin" is a term that is strictly and clearly defined by French and European law.[https://gacweb.icann.org/download/attachments/22938690/Vin-FR-23177.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1353451842000 Vin FR, GACweb.ICANN.org] Donuts replied to France´s warning to .vin, and its similar objections for [[.health]], [[.sarl]], [[.hotel]], and [[.architect]], with an impassioned defense of the validity of open registration for New gTLDs. They even quote the GAC's own advice with regards to its contract with [[.xxx]] registry provider, [[ICM Registry]], which notes that at that time the GAC was against any monitoring of TLD content given that it seems to overstep ICANN's technical mandate.[http://donuts.co/news/files/donuts_reply_to_france_ARCHITECT_HEALTH_HOTEL_SARL_VIN.pdf Donuts reply to France, donuts.co]Published February 5 2013, Retrieved 8 Feb 2013 ===Application Details=== Many of [[Donuts]]' applications, including this one, seem to have been applied for using the same boiler-plate application in which the TLD is defined as a means of providing greater expression on the Internet and will be an open TLD without pre-registration policies. It notes its plans to adhere with all registration policies required by ICANN and its intent to have remediation and takedown policies clearly defined to fit within these requirements. Pre-registration verification will not be used and this as defined as causing "cause more harm than benefit by denying domain access to legitimate registrants." They intend to control abuse through "extensive user and rights protections."[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/887 ApplicationDetails, gTLDresult.ICANN.org]Retrieved 12 Dec 2012 ==Developments== Although the [[GAC]] was unable to come to consensus on advice for the [[.wine]] and .vin strings, the European Union appears to be strongly against the delegation of the strings without protection of "Geographic Indicator" rights holders (such as Champagne, a wine-growing region) and wine producers. A letter to [[ICANN]] by European Commission VP Neelie Kroes made their position clear and stated that they believe ICANN should hold to the [[GAC]]'s advise on .wine and .vin given at ICANN 46 (Beijing), instead of the "no consensus" advise given in September 2013. The advise given at the Beijing meeting was to not move ahead with delegating the strings until GAC could come to a consensus.[http://domainincite.com/14478-europe-continues-to-object-to-wine-gtld Europe Continues to Object to Wine gTLD, Domain Incite] Retrieved 20 Sept 2013 ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]] [[Category:Food & Drink New gTLDs|vin]]

Domain naming tips

3 basic tips when selecting the right domain name for your website.

Using a local top level domain

If it’s a local business and you want more customers, why not take a look at our domains which are given according to the location you require (.lt , .co.uk, .nyc, .berlin).

Avoid numbers

Avoid the usage of numbers because the people who hear about your website will be having a tough time figuring out if the website contains the number (2) or the number in words (two).

Avoid symbols

Hyphens and dashes will make things complicated and it doesn’t look professional.
