.citadelCitadel Domain LLCView

The .citadel registry itself will reduce the social cost of unnecessary enforcement of the CITADEL mark in the second level. Since all registrants of second level registrations must have the Required License and will not be made available to registrants outside of the Citadel Family, social costs will be eliminated.


How will multiple applications for a particular domain be resolved, for example, by auction or on a first come first served basis?

Since registrations will be limited to members of the Citadel Family who have the Required License, there will be no market in the second level .citadel registrations and there will be no need for any resolution mechanism such as auctions.


Explain any cost benefits for registrants you intend to implement (e.g. advantageous pricing, introductory discounts, bulk registration discounts).

Since registrations will be limited to members of the Citadel Family who have the Required License, there will be no market in the second level .citadel registrations and there will be no need to devise cost benefits or discounts for any registrants.


The Registry Agreement requires that registrars be offered the option to obtain initial domain name registrations for periods of one to ten years at the discretion of the registrar, but no greater than 10 years. Additionally the Registry Agreement requires advance written notice of price increases. Do you intend to make contractual commitments to registrants regarding the magnitude of price escalation?

Applicant will comply with Section 2.10 of the Registry Agreement, although there will not be any need to inform of any price increases since the only registrants will be members of the Citadel Family and will have the Required License in place.
