After entering the DNS root in August, the .post gTLD has started accepting its first registrations.

The Italian postal service is one of the first web sites with a .post address to go live, according to the Universal Postal Union, the registry manager.

Its site at posteitaliane.post appears to be more than just a mirror of its main .it site.

The postal services from Malaysia and Brazil have also signed up, according to the UPU.

The UPU has grand plans for the gTLD, promising a “global track and trace application” that will “enable customers to track the items they have ordered until final delivery.”
