Update on Applications for New Generic Top-Level Domains

April 9, 2012, 3:26 PM

As explained in a prior blog post, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is making available new generic top-level domains which include different types of words in different languages. ICANN will continue to accept applications through April 12, 2012. ICANN recently announced that its target date to release the list of applications for new generic top-level domains is April 30, 2012. To the extent that ICANN receives an overwhelming number of applications, this target release date may be postponed.
