Internet group Icann has confirmed it will reveal which gTLDs have been applied for on 13 June and said there were nearly 2,000 applications made for its new generic top level domains, as the revised process has drawn to a close.
Icann also confirmed that an hour before midnight – when the application window was due to shut - 1,900 applications had been submitted to the organisation.
Once Icann has revealed who has applied, interested parties will have until 12 August to object to the applications being considered.
That dispute procedure is being overseen by Alain Pellet, a French professor of international law. He was appointed as Icann's independent objector for the gTLD process in earlier this month.
Those applying have paid $185,000 in the hope of registering for a gTLD, which would enable enterprises to operate internet addresses ending in brand names, such as .pepsi or place names, such as .london.
Icann was forced to abandon the original application process after it became apparent that a glitch in the system enabled applicants to see the details of others who had applied.
The gaffe was acutely embarrassing for Icann, amid tension over the gTLD process from companies that operate under the same trading name in different parts of the world.
According to Icann, more than 2,000 applications were originally made for the gTLDs. So while there appear to have been marginally fewer applications the second time around, it will no doubt be relieved that the glitch did not deter more organisations.
