Vatican is officially .catholic
Catholic News Service


As top-level Internet domain names are being rolled out and up for grabs, the Vatican has scored control of .catholic.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which coordinates the assignment of Internet domain names and addresses around the world, has been allowing entities to apply for ownership of hundreds, and soon thousands, of new domain names such as .london, .insurance and .xbox, among others.

The Vatican completed the application process last year and received confirmation that it will control the new Internet address extension .catholic and decide who is allowed to use it.

The Vatican will run .catholic and its equivalents in other languages using Latin letters, as well as the equivalent of the word “Catholic” in the Cyrillic, Arabic and Chinese alphabets.
