ICANN To Announce New Domain Applicants April 30

April 2, 2012

The organization that manages internet domain names says it will release the names of applicants for new dot-something domains on April 30.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers has only released a few details about who's applied so far for the new generic top-level domain names, which will greatly expand the current 22 offerings that include .com, .net and .edu. Another 250 suffixes are reserved for government use, such as .us (United States) and .cn (China).

"Our plan always has been to publish the list of applied-for strings approximately two weeks after the close of the April 12th application window," Rod Beckstrom, president and CEO of ICANN, said in a statement. But he then said the group might postpone this if it gets too many applications.

ICANN began accepting applications for its controversial new domain name program on Jan. 12 and the window for applications closes April 12.

Trademark holders and other companies worry they will be forced to apply for domain names for strategic and competitive reasons and say it will pose unnecessary costs on trademark holders.
