GMO Registry offers assistance with the new gTLD application process which was approved by ICANN in 2008.
GMO Registry is the first such business in Japan; and it is one of many business that make up the highly successful and diversified, GMO Internet Group.
In November, 2011, it was announced that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government had chosen to work with GMO Registry and its partner, Cloud Registry, on its proposed .tokyo gTLD.
It is one of two applicants for .osaka. GMO Registry is listed as the applicant on 8 new gTLD applications and is the Registry Provider for 27 applications.
The services offered by GMO Registry fall into three main categories:
- New gTLD application consultation
- Registry Services
- Marketing Support
In May of 2013, CentralNic confirmed in a letter that the company will take over the back-end gTLD registry services for all 27 GMO Registry applications. This move raised concerns that GMO Registry may have failed its ICANN technical evaluations.
