This press release was orginally distributed by ReleaseWire

Cyberjaya, Malaysia -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/02/2024 -- Malaysia's premier digital asset, the .MY Top-Level Domain (TLD), is embarking on a global journey, opening its doors to the world for the first time with the mandate and support of its newly established Ministry of Digital. As of June 13, global users can now register .MY domain names through renowned global registrars.

Until now, .MY domain names were exclusively available to users within Malaysia. However, despite this restriction, .MY has managed to secure a commendable position, ranking third among ASEAN countries in the ccTLD category. This achievement is a testament to the widespread acceptance of .MY among corporations, government agencies, educational institutions, and individuals.

MYNIC, the official ICANN registry operator of .MY, has taken several steps to encourage worldwide adoption, including updating the domain lifecycle, registration agreement, and billing practices to align more closely with most generic TLDs.

The expansion of .MY domain registration for international users solidifies its reputation as a globally trusted digital asset synonymous with innovation, credibility, security, and trustworthiness. MYNIC welcomes everyone, including global brands and trademark holders, to secure their name on .MY.

Strategic Partnerships and Global Initiative
For this project, MYNIC, has established partnerships with Internet Naming Co. and Tucows Registry Services (https://www.tucowsregistry.com), a division of Tucows Domains capitalizing on their combined expertise in DNS, registry services and industry knowledge.

Tucows Domains has extensive understanding and experience with TLDs and provides the infrastructure required to support a global expansion. In this partnership, Tucows Domains is helping MYNIC ensure the backend operation is adheres to international standard and is ready to accept global registrations.

Internet Naming Co. a reputable company with much experience in globalizing and marketing gTLDs, will lead the global launch and marketing efforts for .MY to achieve maximal growth by engaging with renowned Registrars, aiming to expand the reach of .MY domain names in the global market.

Seamless Transition and Branding Opportunities
Registrars that typically support Sunrise registrations may immediately, following onboarding, begin offering .MY domains to their trademark clients without the need for an SMD file. Global general availability of .MY domains will commence at 16:00:00 UTC on June 20, 2024. All global registrars may also participate in the public Early Access Period (EAP) beginning at 16:00:00 UTC on June 13. There are no verification or nexus requirements during all launch phases.

With its universal resonance and sense of belonging, the linguistic versatility of the .MY underscores its potential to resonate with over eight billion English speakers worldwide. The word 'MY' itself is short, easy to understand, and carries a strong sense of identity and ownership. .MY domains are ideal for showcasing skills, establishing a brand, and transacting as digital wallets.
