cat-domain is not for cats

Mallorca, Ibiza and Catalonia has now its own domain
ICANN Registrar Secura: Fast and reliable registration of cat-domains (PresseBox) (Cologne, ) The cat-domains have been established to serve the needs of the Catalan Linguistic and Cultural Community on the Internet.

The Community consists of those who use the Catalan language for their online communications, and/or promote the different aspects of Catalan culture online, and/or want to specifically address their online communications to that Community. That is, if you web is not (at least
partially) in Catalan, you may still apply for a cat-domain but your web site needs to be related to the Catalan culture, language or community.

Evaluate if you fit in any of the conditions stated below:
# You already have online communications in Catalan (web, blog, mail-list, etc). If this is the case, you need to communicate a reference URL you manage.
# You qualified for Sunrise Phase I or Phase III; this allows you to apply for a cat-domain name at any time but without the priority you enjoyed during Sunrise. In this case you need to communicate FASE1 o FASE3 code.
# You have an special code (sometimes called ENS) obtained during promotions (like St. Jordi 2006 or other).
# You carry out online activities (in any language) to promote Catalan language and culture.
# You may be part of the catalonian community and be able to apply for a .CAT if you can get sponsored mail from 3 people already having a cat-domain name that endorse your claim.

It is already possible to register cat-domains with special characters of the Catalan language:à; è; é; í; ï; ò; ó; ú; ue; ç; l·l.
