“a.gov.tr”, “a.edu.tr”, “a.tsk.tr”, “a.bel.tr”, “a.pol.tr” and “a.k12.tr” registrations will start on 14 September 2023 and the process will be operated within the framework of the following rules;

  • Public institutions, organizations, and domain addresses that make up more than half of the capital granted to public institutions will be given priority in the initial allocation procedures, as necessary
  • For "a.gov.tr," "a.edu.tr," "a.tsk.tr," "a.bel.tr," "a.pol.tr," and "a.k12.tr" domain owners, the initial allocation of domain names in the "a.tr" structure is carried out by TRABIS and will be allocated "free of charge" in TRABIS-KK. The existing domain names in question on the system will be linked with domain names in the structure of "a.tr" that are allocated in accordance with this rule.
  • Priority will be granted to the party in the top position in accordance with article 27 of the Internet Domain Names Communiqué hierarchically if the "a" domain of the domain names of the parties to which priority is given are identical.
  • Public institutions and organizations will receive "a.tr" related to "a.k12.tr" allocated by parties other than "a.bel.tr" for free for a year. After a year, it can be renewed for a charge.
  • The government institutions' domain names, such as "a.gov.tr," "a.edu.tr," "a.tsk.tr," "a.bel.tr," "a.pol.tr," and "a.k12.tr," will automatically renew unless they are "cancelled" or "waived."

  • Within the scope of the relationship between the existing domain name and the new domain name, "waiver", "transfer" and "cancellation" transactions for domain names “a.gov.tr”, “a.edu.tr”, “a.tsk.tr”, “a.bel.tr”, “a.pol.tr” and “a.k12.tr”, will also be applied for domain names in the structure of “a.tr” associated with the address in question.

  • The names in the first category will generate domain names with the extension "a.tr" in the TRAB-S-KK format.
  • Users who obtain service from KKs other than TRABS-KK should transfer their domain names in the "a.tr" structure to the KK of their choice by İAAS within a year of their allocation.
  • Domain names in the structure of "a.tr" belonging to users who receive service from KKs other than TRABİS-KK, will not be able to perform any transactions other than "transfer" during the period they receive service from TRABİS-KK.
  • The subsequent transfer transactions will not be subject to the requirement that sixty days have passed after the initial allotment of IAA.
