Latest update shows 839 registered users for new top level domain application system.
ICANN just updated the stats for the number of registered users in its online TLD Application System (TAS).
As of March 25 there were a whopping 839 registered users.
Each registered user can apply for up to 50 domains, although most of these users probably intend to apply for just one.
Since most applications will come in the final days, and March 29th (tomorrow) is the deadline, we could easily see over 1,000 registered users for the system.
How many applications this translates into is yet to be seen. The general estimate before the application window opened was 1,000 to 1,500. Based on these numbers I think we’ll see comfortably over 1,000 new TLD applications.
