There were two applicants for the .PHONE Top Level Domain: Wild Frostbite (a Donuts company) and Dish DBS. It is unclear yet which applicant will gain approval to operate the .PHONE Top Level Domain. A decision is expected on this topic by June 2013.
The Dish DBS company has stated its intention of using .PHONE for its own internal purposes. Therefore, if Dish DBS should win approval from ICANN to operate .PHONE, then .PHONE domain names will not be sold to the general public, and Get New TLDs Inc. will be unable to obtain any .PHONE domain names for its pre-registratin customers.
On the other hand, Wild Frostbite does intend to make .PHONE domain names available for purchase by the general public. Therefore, if Dish DBS should win approval from ICANN to operate .PHONE, then .PHONE domain names will be sold to the general public, and Get New TLDs Inc. will have the opportunity to purchase pre-registered .PHONE domain names on behalf of its customers.
Get New TLDs Inc will share more information about the future of .PHONE as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, please feel free to pre-register your .PHONE domain name. Pre-registration is free, and you may cancel your pre-registration at any time.
