New gTLD passes,signnings and withdrawals

hk_special
ICANN signed 21 new gTLD registry contracts late last week, while one applicant has withdrawn and another has passed evaluation.

First, Donuts has pulled out of its two-way contest for .global, leaving the path clear for CloudNames to be awarded the gTLD, which is to be an open-registration generic.

I gather that the contention set was settled in a rare example of a privately negotiated deal, rather than an auction, involving Donuts.

On Thursday, several applicants signed Registry Agreements with ICANN.

Famous Four Media, which applied for 60 strings, signed its first RA, for .bid.

Fellow portfolio applicant Top Level Domain Holdings signed for .miami, .country, .work, .vodka and .rodeo; Donuts got .supplies, .supply and .商店 (“shop”) and Top Level Spectrum got .feedback.

Kred contracted for .best and .kred and Punto 2012 got .rest (for “restaurant” and its many non-English variants).

In dot-brands, World Trade Centers Association got .wtc, Sohu.com got .sohu, Frogans got .frogans, AXA got .axa and Brazilian media conglomerate Globo got .globo.

In geographic strings, PointQuebec got .quebec, while FAITID got .moscow and its Cyrllic IDN equivalent .москва.

Finally, on Friday ICANN passed Bosch Rexroth’s dot-brand application for .rexroth through Extended Evaluation.
