Applicant Loses New gTLD .WEBS IRP

The .WEBS IRP
According to DomainMondo: "Web.com, one of seven applicants (see diagram) for the pending .WEB new gTLD (new generic top-level domain), filed a string confusion objection (SCO) to new gTLD ".WEBS" applied for solely by Vistaprint (NASDAQ: CMPR) (2 applications). The SCO filed by Web.com was ultimately upheld by ICANN and Vistaprint filed an IRP (Independent Review Process), which has now been decided in favor of ICANN".
