    From Monday 11 December anyone wanting a .asia domain name will be able to express their interest on www.asiadns.com, following agreement between the EuroDNS registry and DotAsia, the sponsoring organisation behind .asia.

    According to EuroDNS, "While this service cannot be a pre-registration until the actual .asia rules are finalised, it is an increased chance for any potential domain registration to be considered and will allow DotAsia and EuroDNS to get a better feel of the market."

    ICANN and DotAsia signed the .asia registry agreement on 6 December 2006 at the ICANN annual meeting in Sao Paulo, Brazil following the ICANN board approving the designation of the .asia sponsored top-level domain on 18 October 2006. DotAsia is the first gTLD registry with a headquarters in the Asia-Pacific region.

    DotAsia Organisation (http://www.dotasia.org) is a membership-based not-for-profit corporation located in Hong Kong that was created in March of 2004 for the purpose of submitting a proposal to ICANN to operate a new TLD registry for the .asia top-level domain (TLD).
