31 New TLDs Added to the Internet
In 2012, ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and numbers, accepted applications to create new Top Level Domains (TLDs). A TLD is the text to the right of the final dot in a domain name. For example, .Com is the most popular TLD today. 1,930 applications for new TLDs were filed with ICANN as a result of the 2012 application round. Since then, ICANN has been evaluating the new TLD applications. To date, 31 new TLDs have been added to the Internet as a result of the 2012 application round. Domains within these new TLDs are expected to go on sale in 2014.
November 25, 2013 - A Top Level Domain (TLD) is the text to the right of the final dot in a domain name. For example, .Com is the most popular TLD today. In 2012, ICANN - the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers - held a historic application round inviting organizations from around the world to apply to create new TLDs. 1,930 applications for new TLDs were filed in ICANN's historic application round, which closed in 2012. Since that time, each application has undergone a rigorous evaluation process which included evaluation of the string itself as well as the applicant's technical capacity and financial capability for operating a new TLD. It is expected that over 700 new TLDs will result from this application process, since many of the applied-for TLDs were duplicates of each other.
To date, a total of 31 new TLDs have been added to the Internet as a result of the 2012 application round. From this point, each TLD will go through a 'ramp-up' phase during which the applicant gears up to sell domains within the new TLD to the public.
The table below provides a list of all of the new TLDs to be delegated to date as a result of the 2012 application round.
