TLD Application Review
(5 October 2000)
- On Monday, 2 October 2000 the application
period for those seeking to sponsor or operate new TLDs ended.
A total of 47 applications were received during the application
period. ICANN has posted a list
of the applicants and the TLD strings they are requesting.
- ICANN's staff is currently doing an initial
review of the applications. This includes:
- We expect to post most non-confidential portions of applications on the ICANN web site on approximately Wednesday, 11 October
2000. This is a delay from the
previous goal of Saturday, 7 October 2000 because (a) we received
more applications than assumed in establishing that goal and
(b) many applicants have made broad claims of confidentiality
that should be resolved before full posting.
For reference, we continue to make the
forms, and other materials we provided to the applicants
