gTLD applicants clarify intentions; Google launches domain registry

Applicants for generic strings
have clarified their intended use
of the top-level domains (TLDs)
that they seek to operate. This
came a day after the Internet
Corporation for Assigned Names
and Numbers (ICANN) revealed
that some stalled applications
can proceed to delegation if the
applicant blocks certain secondlevel
domains while further
assessment is carried out. In
other gTLD-related news, Google
has launched its online domain
registry, Charleston Road Registry.
