ICANN makes progress on new TLDs in Brussels


The application period for the next round of new top-level domains moved one step closer to commencement after a productive and well-attended ICANN meeting in Brussels last week.

The board resolved on Friday to dedicate its two-day retreat in September entirely to working on the issues that remain outstanding in the Draft Applicant Guidebook. The current version of the DAG, the fourth, is expected to be the final draft before applications become open to potentially hundreds of prospective new TLD registry operators.

NEW TLD APPLICATION TIP: How to achieve market distribution for your new TLD


If you are a new TLD applicant, one of the key pieces of your plan is how you intend to go to market. Many applicants will be required by ICANN to use registrars, and there are many good reasons for this. Registrars understand the domain business, they are experienced domain marketers and most importantly, they have existing business relationships with many of the same registrants you will need to make your TLD successful.
