Domains, Servers, SSL and more.

(REGENSBURG – BRUSSELS, June 2010) - This time the 38th Meeting of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is taking place in Brussels, Belgium. As Brussels is home to the European Commission and the European Council, it is perfectly fitting that the .EU registry EURid is hosting the conference. From 20th to 25th June 2010, Internet experts and interested parties will gather to discuss legal and technical developments in the domain and Internet industry.

InterNetX GmbH is a silver sponsor of this ICANN event and is presenting its comprehensive TLD portfolio and innovative hosting-solutions. With more than 300 ccTLDs and gTLDs and over 2.9 million hosted domains, the German registrar counts as one of the leading Internet Services Providers on the international market.

The introduction of new generic TLDs, like .SPORT or .BERLIN, will once again be a major point of discussion. It is still not foreseeable when the first new TLDs will enter the market. The application procedure is still in project mode. The fourth and latest version of the Draft Applicant Guidebook will be up for discussion at the ICANN meeting.

One of the issues remaining to be clarified, for instance, is how much time the application process will take from beginning to end. The „Initial Evaluation“ can take up to eight months. Taking into account all necessary and potentially occurring operations, the whole application process could easily last for more than 18 months. There are open issues concerning costs as well. An evaluation fee of 185,000 USD has to be paid in any case. But this amount can increase significantly when it comes to additional evaluation or dispute resolution processes.

Even if all points under discussion are resolved in the near future, new gTLDs will probably not be launched before 2012. Applicants for new gTLDs will still have to put in a lot of time, patience and money until their investments pay off.

The 38th Public ICANN Meeting is taking place at the Square Brussels Meeting Centre in Brussels, Belgium, from 20th until 25th June 2010.
