ICANN Formally Adopts New Generic Top-Level Domain Name Program, Postpones Application Period


As expected, the ICANN Board of Directors voted to approve the New Generic Top-Level Domain Name Program at its annual meeting in Singapore. ICANN has postponed the application period, however. ICANN will accept applications between January 12 and April 12, 2012. Before the meeting, the application period was expected to open in November 2011 and close in February 2012. This postponement will give ICANN more time to market the New gTLD opportunity to its numerous stakeholders.
