ICANN has published their final new gTLD Weekly Update for 2012. In the update the organisation has taken the opportunity to pause and take a look back what they have accomplished this year. ICANN notes they have been incredibly busy, and with say that with the community’s help, they have accomplished a great deal and made significant progress moving the New gTLD Programme forward.
For the update in full, see below or click here.
In addition to the above major developments, the new gTLD Customer Service Center has been working hard throughout the year to answer your questions, process change requests and provide continual support to all applicants.
As we look towards 2013 we see more milestones ready to achieve. New gTLD applications will begin to make their way through Initial Evaluation and on to contracting, pre-delegation and delegation.
Thank you for your patience, hard work, and input. This program would not be possible without you.
Wishing everyone a very happy and prosperous New Year!
