Legal Alert - ICANN Reveals Applied-For gTLD Strings
June 18, 2012
by Matthew Schoonover and Timothy Toohey
June 13 marked “Reveal Day” — the day on which the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) released the list of applied-for generic top-level domains (gTLD). These new gTLD suffixes, which follow the “.” in a domain name, expand the number of available options beyond the familiar “.com,” “.org,” “.edu,” and other existing gTLDs. According to ICANN, the expansion of top-level domain name options will increase competition and choice for the Internet’s addressing system.
