Official Travel Registrar Announces Expiration Reminder for .travel Place Names

EnCirca Offers Expedited Service for Government Tourism Agencies and Destination Management Organizations.

BOSTON, Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- EnCirca (http://www.encirca.com/), Official Registrar for .travel, announces an expiration reminder for .travel place names. The vision of .travel is to provide the first centralized, global online directory and search portal to help consumers precisely identify providers of travel products and services.

".travel is the only Internet top-level domain name that reserves place names to be claimed by government bodies. But unclaimed .travel place names are expected to become released in 2007," says Tom Barrett, President of EnCirca. "Famous destinations are the intellectual property of national governments. This is their opportunity to claim their famous destinations in the .travel domain."

As an Official Travel Registrar, EnCirca offers an expedited registration service for all qualifying government agencies and Destination Management organizations (DMOs), including processing orders by purchase order with deferred payment in 2007. EnCirca staff will continue processing last-minute .travel orders throughout the year-end holidays.

In cooperation with the United Nations' World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), Tralliance, the .travel registry has reserved over six million place names for .travel. Through the registry's Nation's Priority Right, government authorities have until December 31, 2006 to claim place names that correspond to cities, towns, heritage sites, pilgrim centers, sacred sites, national parks/preserves, and any other geographic location located in their region.

Thousands of place and destination names ranging from small cities to countries to landmarks have already been registered. Some examples include: egypt.travel, miami.travel, utah.travel, boston.travel, and many more. Many cities and places are also entitled to register "derivatives" of their .travel domain names, such as: santamonicabeaches.travel, denverhotels.travel and many more.

Governments may claim their place names by sending email at: [email protected] Once approved, you then go to http://www.encirca.com/ to register the selected .travel domain names.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
