Recommendations to Expedite the Next Round of Top-Level Domains
The launch of the ‘next’ round of new generic top-level domain (gTLD) program has experienced significant delays since the 2012 round, resulting in frustration for prospective applicants and undermined trust in the multistakeholder governance model.
The BRG has produced the following report with the aim of stimulating community dialogue that is focused on helping to launch the next round as quickly as possible whilst providing the ICANN Board and Org with the necessary strategy and confidence to ensure its timely and successful implementation.
This will be presented during ICANN76 in Cancun, Mexico on March 11, 2023.
