New Top Level Domain Names: REVEAL DAY is Coming


Reveal Day is coming: On June 13, 2012, ICANN is expected to release information about the applications received for the new generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs). The application period for the new gTLDs – like .brand or .soda -- closed on May 30, 2012.

What is Reveal Day?

On Reveal Day, ICANN will publicly post certain key information about the new gTLD applications. ICANN will disclose the gTLD character “strings” (or domains) that have been applied for, the identity of each applicant, and how the applicant intends to use the domain – for instance as a “closed” domain accessible only to a limited type of user, or as an “open” domain that will be available to the public.
