ICANN delays new top level domain application timeline again
Monday, April 16th, 2012
TAS won’t open up tomorrow, and that means the application deadline may be extended again.
Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping…
ICANN announced this afternoon that it will not reopen the TLD application system (TAS) tomorrow as planned. It thinks it has “fixed the glitch”. But before it reopens TAS it wants to perform more testing and inform all applicants who may have been affected by the bug.
[Any applicants or consultants who may be aware of effected parties, please drop me a note.}
The extended deadline for applications was to be on Friday. But with TAS not opening up again as planned, I suspect ICANN will push that date back as well.
