.HIV is going to operate differently than most other new domain extensions, because it will operate as a charity. .HIV will be available for registration by any individual, organization, or company looking to promote HIV awareness and raise funds to find treatments and a cure. After a .HIV page goes live, each pageview earns “back” a portion of the registration cost toward an HIV charity of the registrant’s choosing. .HIV hopes to be “the Red Ribbon of the digital age.”
There is no specific procedure related to the registration of a domain name.
.hiv domain names are allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.
