A bid by the European Broadcasting Union to manage a worldwide Internet domain portal specially for radio has won more support. The International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) says it backs the EBU’s application to manage the .radio domain. The EBU has applied to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to manage the top level domain name .radio to create a world-wide radio community. Under the proposal, registration will be available via the EBU to all eligible radio representative organisations and broadcasters, Internet radios, radio amateurs, radio professionals and their respective representative organisations, as well as companies providing radio-specific products and services. ICANN has extended the formal period for public comment to 26 September 2012 to meet the demands of individuals and organisations. Its open forum is at: https://gtldcomment.icann.org/ (Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union)
