The UIM joins the .sport community

Spread the love

As from December 3rd 2018, the UIM will join the .Sport community and we will replace their current web address www.uimpowerboating.com by the shorter link www.uim.sport

The same principle applies for their email addresses.

In 2012, the Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF), then known as SportAccord, applied to operate the .sport Internet extension on behalf of the worldwide sport community. Following contention resolution and related proceedings, the .sport extension was created in the root of the Internet Domain Name System on January 10, 2018.

The .sport
Vision Meaning, credibility, memorability, searchability, availability, persistence, portability:  these are key advantages made possible in a dedicated Internet extension devoted to the cause of sport. Commercial alternatives on offer lack these advantages.

In order to make most of its potential for the benefit of the entire community, the .sport extension applies the values of sport as they have evolved and consolidated over time: an open, objective, rulebased approach. Rules support fairplay, competition, participation, and transparency.

The .sport Internet extension is placed under the authority of the International Sports Federations. Its rules support the sport community. Rules are designed to defend legitimate interests of community stakeholders, sponsors and brands.
