“We specialise as a full service provider enabling Registries to thrive on the back of our combined financial, technological and marketing reach.”

    You are carrying the reporting of the new gTLDs a little too far; it’s almost like a propaganda campaign of some sort! And I don’t mean “propaganda” in the nefarious way that it is often associated.

    You should spend more time and effort explaining to us why we should care who registered what gTLD.

    I count dozens of posts in my inbox heralding the application for gTLD by one outfit or the other. If you don’t stop, I will cancel my subscription to your blog posts.

    Thank you.

    I think that ICANN is not going to approve the generic keyword TLDs as easy as the .brands or .geos , so applying for one doesn’t necessarily mean getting one. Off course this is just my opinion.

    Mike, thats why i said carpet bombed :)

    It’s like Frank’s and mine domain portfolios.
    One has carpet bombed a huge portfolio together, the other has precision targeted a high end portfolio.
    Famous 4 precision targeted quality high end TLDs, while donuts is carpet bombing for volume.

    so does icann have a bias for certain back-end providers?

    verisign vs. afilias vs. newcomer?

    verisign seems like probably the best choice you could make as an applicant. they run the most important dns servers on the ‘net. but maybe there’s a little icann/verisign rivalry?

    How can one ? “Look at the applications my friends!”

    ICANN has taken the Applications offline

    Also, if the Applications are passed around and morphed, they evolve so people have no idea who is proposing to do what. Also, all the Premium TLDs will be turning up for consumers via Peer-2-Peer DNS without any ICANN involvement.

    In two years people may ask, “What was ICANN ?”
