The 9 missing .org domains from Project94.org are country codes: do.org, pt.org, ac.org, bs.org etc.

Do you remember the 9 missing .org domains from Project94.org? According to PIR’s Public Relations firm the remaining 9 are country codes and will be allocated accordingly. I got this note after someone from the PR firm read my article. I am not all clear on how these are going to be allocated. Probably these will go to the respective registries running the ccTLDs.

A few weeks back I wrote about how the Public Interest Registry (PIR), the .ORG registry, will release 94 one and two character .ORG domains using Go Daddy and eNom. The published lists of domains allocated to each registrar at Project94.org  had only 85 .org domains. Go Daddy has 42 and eNom has 43 .org domains. I posted the complete list of these 85 domains here. That left 9 missing domains that are country codes. I was only  able to find 8 of them and here they are:

ac.org – Ascension Island
ar.org – Armenia
bs.org – Bahamas
do.org – Dominican Republic
mw.org – Malawi
pt.org – Portugal
sk.org – Slovakia
vc.org – Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

A few weeks back I ran a whois search for all the possible 2 character combinations in .org. I found 8 of the country codes (in my list of 61 possible domains) but was wrong about j0.org being on the list although I don’t know why as it has the same creation date (7th of May 2012) as the other 94 domains and the same whois result: “Name is reserved by Registry_Policy”.

This leaves me with 53 domains that should have been in this project but aren’t. These are reserved by PIR just like the 94 .org in the current project but I was told that these were not approved by ICANN. Here they are:
