COMMENT SUBMITTED BY DOTCONNECTAFRICA TRUST
on The New gTLD Application Comments Forum
Pursuant to Section 188.8.131.52 ('Comment Period') of the new gTLD Applicant's Guidebook that allows public comments to be posted on any submitted application during the Application Comment Period, DCA Trust had reviewed the public portions of the application for .AFRICA submitted by UniForum ZA Central Registry (Application ID: 1-1243-89583) and formally submitted certain comments on the posted application materials of UniForum during the public comments period of the new gTLD Program Time-Table.
It is anticipated that these comments will be made available to the ICANN Evaluation Panels performing the Initial Evaluation Reviews, and would be noted, verified and analyzed with a view to disqualifying or failing the UniForum application for .AFRICA gTLD string name.
We believe that it is our duty to bring these important information and issues to the attention of the ICANN Evaluation and that our comments will be taken into thorough consideration during the evaluation process because we rightly believe that the UniForum application fails to meet the criteria of the new gTLD program established by the guidebook in many important respects.
The various public comments relate to different subjects, and can be assessed via these links below.
