TLD.Asia is a DotAsia initiative supporting the creation and development of TLDs (Top-Level Domains) in Asia. As the first and only gTLD from and for Asia, DotAsia will invest our financial and intellectual resources along with our industry, technology and community knowledge to support new gTLD projects from Asia as well as those with a vision for the Asian Internet community and marketplace.

The ICANN new gTLD program opens up a new era for Internet development. This breakthrough holds the potential for the creation of economic value, as well as opportunities for social and community development. DotAsia believes that putting the prospects to good use can advance market choice, allow brands to expand their footprint and develop trust with consumers, as well as for communities, cities and initiatives to establish their identity online and for raising awareness and attention for social cause and movements.

While economic viability and sustainable return on investments are important, as a not-for-profit organization with a core mandate to promote Internet development and adoption in Asia, DotAsia will also prioritize our support for community oriented TLD projects, promote constructive competition, and projects that align with our vision to contribute to the development of Asia.


DotAsia Organisation is a regional not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote Internet development and adoption around Asia. DotAsia oversees the ".Asia" top-level Internet domain name, and is formed as an open membership consortium of official domain authorities around the region, including .CN (China), .JP (Japan), .KR (Korea), .IN (India), .NZ (New Zealand), .PH (Philippines), etc., and regional Internet organizations including APNIC, APNG, APCERT, PAN and APTLD. DotAsia has a core mandate towards digital inclusion, education and research and development.

Since the launch of the “.Asia” registry in March 2008, DotAsia has been proactively contributing to the Internet and cultural community in Asia. Today, DotAsia is already supporting many community projects in the region: Relief.Asia, ISIF.Asia (R&D Grants Fund), CreativeCommons.Asia, OLPC.Asia (One-Laptop-Per-Child Initiative in Asia), DSF.Asia (Digital Solidarity Fund), OSS.Asia (Open Source Software consortium), and NetMission.Asia (youth volunteer program & network).

Through the TLD.Asia initiative, DotAsia is investing its knowledge, expertise and funds to promote the development of new TLD initiatives, and establish it as Asia’s New gTLD Resource Centre.
