Statement by Akram Atallah, COO
21 May 2012
The TLD Application System, or TAS, has reopened. All registered applicants
can now log in, review and submit their applications.
The system will remain open until 23:59 GMT/UTC on 30 May 2012. Consistent
with our previous practice and to allow the application window to open as
soon as possible, two-hour maintenance windows have been scheduled as
follows: 22 May at 16:30 GMT/UTC, 25 May at 23:00 UTC, and 29 May at 22:00
Applicants are encouraged to review "*Top Things Users Should Know When TAS
Reopens,*" posted on the new gTLD microsite at
http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/applicants/tas/top-ten. The document provides
advice on logging into and completing applications, submitting wire
transfers, and contacting customer service with any issues users might
During the last few weeks, we have fixed the technical glitch that caused
us to take the system offline. Also, to address user feedback, we have
improved the overall system performance and the HTML preview function.
In our continuing review of the system logs and system traffic, we
determined that in two instances, a single file might have been temporarily
unavailable to an applicant. Full access to those two files has been
restored. ICANN notified the affected users.
We recognize and regret the inconvenience caused by this glitch and the
delayed closing of the application window.
