ICANN Announces June 13 as Reveal Day
for Proposed New gTLDs
The domain world has been anxiously awaiting the reveal of the new gTLDs that have been proposed to ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, through the over 1900 applications they received. Now the countdown has begun as June 13 gets ever closer…
So far, there have been some proposed gTLDs that have been made public. For example, Google announced that it applied for .GOOGLE, .YOUTUBE, .DOCS, and, our favorite, .LOL. Canadian company, Momentous Corp, has proposed .SUCKS and .RIP. Several cities have also applied for their own gTLDs including .QUEBEC, .PARIS, .MELBOURNE, and .MIAMI. You can check out the full list of proposed gTLDs that have been announced on thetoplevel.com.
