The UMMOA makes itself at home in the .TF ccTLD (without booting France out)


The .UM country code top-level domain (ccTLD) is serviced entirely with Cesidian Root servers in the Cesidian Root global system of root servers. There are no foreign servers serving that ccTLD, since the United States has abandoned the .UM TLD at the end of April 2008.

The .TF is the Internet ccTLD for the French Southern and Antarctic Lands (France). Along with .FR and .RE, it is administered by AFNIC.

However, on 5 May 2012, all French Southern and Antarctic Lands in addition of Aphrodite Island, and with the exception of Adélie Land (now known as Fabian Gottlieb Land or Terra Fabiana), have been recognised as UMMOA allodial title claims by the Organization of Emerging African States (OEAS).

So recently Cesidian Root officers have selectively taken over certain domains within the .TF ccTLD. These working domains are now administered entirely by the Cesidian Root:
  • gov.tf  (Terra Fabiana)
  • terrafirma.tf  (Terra Firma)
  • tallini.tf  (Tallini Track & Field)
  • tf.tf  (Terra Fabiana)
  • terrafabiana.tf  (Terra Fabiana)
  • fam.tf  (The Tallini Family)
  • ttf.tf  (The Tallini Family)
  • strdu.tf  (Saint René Descartes University)
  • ccl.tf  (Centre for Cesidian Law)
  • salus.tf  (Salubriology School)
  • 5wats.tf  (Fifth World Agricultures Technologies and Solutions)
So Cesidian Root users can resolve both of these domains...
...with the same end result. However, the first domain is administered by AFNIC, while the second is administered independently by the Cesidian Root.

The .TF country code top-level domain (ccTLD) shall be used by the UMMOA for any of these purposes:
  • Terra Fabiana, the slice of Antarctica about the size of Iraq that the UMMOA claims;
  • Terra Firma, continental (non-insular) land masses, or planet Earth in general;
  • Antarctica in general;
  • The Tallini Family;
  • Teaching-Focused;
  • Test or Training Facilities;
  • Track & Field;
  • Tax or Toll Free.
