ICANN has made public the list of applications for new generic Top-Level-Domains (gTLDs) and their applicants, and have opened a 60-day comments window during which anyone could submit comments that will be presented to the evaluation panel for consideration.

TechCrunch has put together the list of gTLD applications from major companies such as Amazon, Google, Apple, Samsung, AOL, Microsoft, and Sony. While both Amazon and Google are tops in number of applications made, Google takes the cake in quirkiness. At least Amazon’s applications make sense and somewhat aligned to their businesses – e.g. .amazon, .cloud, .store. In contrast, Google had applied for gTLDs such as .lol, .foo, .fun, .fyi. -_-”

How about applications from Singapore? I did a quick scan and found:

  • .changiairport – Changi Airport Group
  • .starhub – StarHub Limited
  • .temasek – Temasek Holdings
  • .淡马锡 – Temasek Holdings
  • .wilmar – Wilmar International

Newsflash: Google Applying for New Top-Level-Domains (TLDs) – .google, .docs, .youtube, .lol

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

Google has revealed that it has applied for new generic Top-level-Domains (gTLDs), categorizing them as:

  • Trademarks such as .google
  • Domains related to Google’s core business – e.g. .docs
  • Domains that could improve user experience – e.g. .youtube
  • Interesting domains – e.g. .lol

gTLDs are top level domain names not affiliated with any country, examples are .com, .net, and .org. ICANN had, in Jan this year, started to accept applications for new gTLDs.

ICANN Has Received 100 Applicants for New Generic TLDs

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

ICANN has reportedly received applications from 100 organizations for new generic TLDs (gTLDs) since ICANN started accepting applications on 12 Jan this year. However, ICANN did not reveal who they are or what TLDs were applied for.

gTLDs, which stands for generic Top-Level-Domains, are top level domain names not affiliated with any country, such as .com, .net and .org. At present, gTLDs are defined and administered only by ICANN, and this new gTLDs program will allow organisations to apply for and administer new gTLDs such as “.thing”, and “.brand”. Additionally, the new gTLDs are not restricted to just latin characters – they could be in other scripts such as Chinese or Arabic.

ICANN Approves New Top Level Domains

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

At a landmark meeting held in Singapore, ICANN, the governing body for Internet domain names have approved expansion plans for new generic Top Level Domains (gTLD). Generic Top Level Domains are top level domain names that do not have any association with any country, such as .com, .net, .org, and .xxx ;) .

Under the approved plans, interested parties could apply to create and manage new gTLDs; it would cost $185,000 to apply and $25,000 per year to operate it. While there are obvious concerns of trademark infringements and cyber-squatting, ICANN has assured that the current approval process would not allow the application of strings that are “confusingly similar”, and would also allow for a period of time for third-parties to voice their objections before the evaluated strings get approved.

Applications for new gTLDs will be accepted from 12 January 2012 to 12 April 2012, and the approval process is expected to take 8 – 18 months.
