Current Applicants

  1. Top Level Domain Holdings Ltd.- It is one of 68 applications that the company has filed on its own behalf.[1]
  2. Donuts (Romeo Birch, LLC), Donuts formed different companies to submits each of its application for 307 new gTLDs. [2]
  3. Dish DBS Corporation- The company runs the Dish Network Television Service in the United States.[3]

Dish DBS Corporation

The application from Dish DBS Corporation was issued a GAC Early Warning from the representative of Australia and GAC Chair, Heather Dryden. The warning system is noted as a strong recommendation on behalf of national governments to the ICANN Board that a given TLD application should be denied as it stands. Applicants are encouraged to work with objecting GAC members.[4]

The warning states that the applicant is "seeking exclusive access to a common generic string .. that relates to a broad market sector," which Ms. Dryden notes could have unintended consequences and a negative impact on competition.[5]
