Now ICANN has to decide how to spend money earned in auctions

Extract: "The largest single public amount paid was the $25m Google shelled out for the most popular name of the entire process: dot-app. That may also have been the largest single amount for any gTLD, although it's worth bearing in mind that the private auctions for .blog, .news, .book and others may have raised similar amounts of money".

Note: did you know there is a TLD which means "trademark"? The ".商标" IDN stands for “.trademark” in Simplified Chinese.

Reminder:
  • Auction Clubs can register a ".club" domain name with UniRegistry;
  • Brands can submit their trademark data into the Trademark Clearinghouse ("TMCH") to participate in a Sunrise Period. The TMCH calendar is available here;
  • Do you need to promote your new gTLD? Contact Jovenet Consulting.
