The 32nd new gTLD application has been withdrawn with ICANN, and today its not for a brand Application but for the most applied for new gTLD, .App.
.App you my recall had the most applications submitted to ICANN during the new gTLD program with 13 applications, including one’s submitted by Google, Amazon, Donuts, Top Level Domain Holdings and Famous Four and Afilias to name a few.
The company withdrawing their application to operate the Top Level Domain for .App is Dot App LLC, of Utah which had a prioritization number in the ICANN draw of 290.
Michael Daniel Jensen and Aaron Ronald Stewart were the contact for the company which appears to have only have only filed for one new gTLD and apparently didn’t like their chances against the other 12 applicants.
Since their initial evaluations had not been issued they will get a refund of 70% of their $185,000 application fee.
