.travel is now live


.travel is a top–level domain intended for businesses and individuals involved in the travel industry.

Airlines, theme parks, restaurants, tourism offices, tour operators, B&Bs and the like are eligible to acquire one.


Amusement parks would appear to be theme parks.

Once in a while — or so I've been led to believe — someone chuckles at something in bookofjoe.

Does that qualify me as an amusement?

joe.travel — I like it.

It says somewhere in all the boilerplate here that a .travel name costs $240 for two years.

ICANN appointed New York–based Tralliance Corporation to be the administrator of the new domain but the company won't be doing credit or criminal background checks to verify who's signing up.

Qualified companies and individuals have been able to register for a .travel domain name for some months now but only on October 3 did their domains go live and become useable.

Apparently there's some controversy about the .travel TLD. A post at Hasbrouk.org suggests that Tralliance is a front company riddled with bad accounting, secret memos of understanding, and insolvency.

Here's the story:

You may qualify as an amusement. Probably not as a park, though.
