Special ICANN Board meeting in Trondheim, Norway produces decisions and new clarity
The Directors of Top Level Domain Holdings Limited (AIM: TLDH) would like to draw Shareholders’ attention to the recent positive statement from the Board of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (“ICANN”) following their retreat on 24-25 September 2010 in Trondheim, Norway. The ICANN meeting took place to resolve any remaining issues ahead of the introduction of new generic top-level domains (“gTLDs”), anticipated to come into effect in 2011.
Frederick Krueger, Chairman and CEO of TLDH, commented: “We are highly encouraged by the positive signals and language being used by the ICANN Board. The ICANN meeting in Cartagena later this year in December promises to be a milestone event in the gTLD process and a culmination of many years of planning. We continue to prepare ourselves for the official start of the new gTLD application process.” (more…)
