ICANN is pleased to release three additional documents related to the New generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) Program. These materials are posted for public comment that will be open until July 21, 2010. We are looking forward to receiving your comments. These three documents are part of a series of publications recently posted. For more details go to:icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-4-31may10-en.htm
This publication is part one of a two phase study. The second phase will begin after the closure and analysis of the public comments. You can access this public forum here.
The working group continues to evaluate and propose recommendations regarding specific support to new gTLD applicants in justified cases. The current publication is a status report and findings to date, with a view to solicit public comments to guide further work. You can access this public forum here.
In addition to this public comment, the working group posted a blog asking for input from providers of registry service. See blog here.
On June 23, 2010, during the ICANN Meeting in Brussels there will be a session dedicated to this topic. The session is called “Reducing Barriers to New gTLD Creation in Developing Regions” and the details for in person and remote participation can be found here.
