dot Brand Registration Window for New TLDs Closes March 29, 2012

Afilias, a leading global registry services provider, is advising organizations that they have only until March 29, 2012, to complete their ICANN registration to manage and run their own “dot Brand” Top Level Domains (TLD). After March 29, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) -- the Internet governing body -- will no longer accept registrations. Final proposals from registered applicants must be submitted to ICANN no later than April 12, 2012. In short, applicants must start today if they hope to complete the multi-step application process.

We’re excited to bring a new top-level domain into the Afilias family and help grow the use of it. I also think it shows that the top-level domain business is a unique one – and it’s not one to be entered into lightly.
