Two new gTLD apps pass EE

While the industry’s attention may be focused — rightly — on new gTLD sunrise periods and launch plans, a handful of applicants are still slogging their way through ICANN evaluation.

Two more applications passed Extended Evaluation this week — Locus Analytics’ dot-brand .locus and DotPlace’s .place.

Both had failed Initial Evaluation in 2013 due to a lack of provided financial statements.

While .locus is uncontested and can now proceed to contracting, testing and delegation, .place has also been applied for by Donuts so will presumably be auctioned off.

    Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse.

    My imagination or are these extensions getting even dumber?

    Huge .fail ahead!

      .locus is a restricted registry so you probably shouldn’t apply an open registration logic to it… but hey, you are only interested in keeping the value of of your .com portifolio, so logic doesn’t apply, right ?
