Firms can submit applications for its use to domains.cpa. The process will be opened to individual CPAs in January.
The initial period ends October 31. Firms must be licensed and agree to use .cpa. Those in the early registration phase will be able to register their .com domains using .cpa and will be notified of their approval status no later than early November.
The AICPA was awarded ownership and management of .cpa last year by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and has contracted with Neustar to maintain and secure all .cpa domains.
