ICANN to Reopen Generic Top-Level Domain Application System May 22

Thursday May 10th 2012 by Datamation.com Staff

A software glitch had forced the organization to shut down the application process for a period of time.

Computerworld: Organizations that have been waiting to apply for new generic top-level Internet domains will get their chance later this month. Originally, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) said that it would accept applications for alternatives to .com, .org, .net, etc. through April 20. However, a software bug  forced ICANN to suspend the application process. Now, ICANN says the system will go back online May 22, and the organization will continue to accept applications through May 30.

Before discovering the software glitch, ICANN had received 2,091 applications for new generic top-level domains.
