For those interested in knowing more about how is IANA is linked to new gTLDs, I suggest to go down to page 12 of this report and read "3.1 Root Zone Management Categories".

I am a new gTLD Consultant based in Paris. "New gTLD" stands for "new generic Top-Level Domains" from the ICANN new gTLD program. They are new domain name extensions such as ".consulting" (instead of ".com").
