For Immediate Release
ICANN to Reveal Who Applied for Which New Generic Top-Level Domain
April 30 Picked as Target Date for Announcement
Marina del Rey, California… ICANN has set April 30th as its target date to release the list of applications for new generic top-level domains, specifying who has applied for which domain names.
“Our plan always has been to publish the list of applied-for strings approximately two weeks after the close of the April 12th application window,” said Rod Beckstrom, President and CEO of ICANN. “Setting a target date gives people the opportunity to plan for this highly anticipated event.”
Beckstrom also noted that if ICANN receives an overwhelming number of applications to process, publication of the list of strings could be postponed.

About ICANN: ICANN’s mission is to ensure a stable, secure and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an address into your computer - a name or a number. That address has to be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN coordinates these unique identifiers across the world. Without that coordination we wouldn't have one global Internet. ICANN was formed in 1998. It is a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with participants from all over the world dedicated to keeping the Internet secure, stable and interoperable. It promotes competition and develops policy on the Internet’s unique identifiers. ICANN doesn’t control content on the Internet. It cannot stop spam and it doesn’t deal with access to the Internet. But through its coordination role of the Internet’s naming system, it does have an important impact on the expansion and evolution of the Internet.
