Three new gTLD applications passed either Initial or Extended Evaluation this week, according to ICANN’s latest updates.
MMA IARD, a French insurance company, passed IE for .mma, a dot-brand. It’s an uncontested application, so it seems unlikely that “mixed martial arts” will ever have its own exact-match gTLD.
Boston Consulting Group and I-REGISTRY passed Extended Evaluation on .bcg and .online respectively.
Both had failed IE first time around for failing to provide sufficient financial statements, and both seem to have rectified the problem in EE.
I-REGISTRY’s pass means all four remaining .online applicants are through evaluation and can begin to fight out the contention set among themselves.
