Re: Criteria to
Be Used in the Selection of New Sponsored TLDs
Plan for Action Regarding New gTLDs", ICANN's
President recommended that the ICANN Board consider immediately initiating a
round for selecting three sponsored top-level domains (sTLDs),
subject to verification that the sTLDs introduced in
2001 had not admitted significant numbers of registrants that lie outside of
their charters. A study
of that question has now been completed and shows general adherence to the sTLD charters.
Why does the selection need to be limited to “three sponsored
top-level domains?” If the
application meets the criteria, why should there be any artificial restrictions?
