Are “International TLDs” the key to a successful Registry?

That is quite possible as the results of the recent .CLUB launching show that it generated a lots of interest in a short period of time. The .CLUB registry is now number 3 on the list of most registered domain names with 37 806 domains registered and .EMAIL is in position 6 (source http://ntldstats.com/).

.WINE and .VIN : "la politique de l'Autruche"

All parties following the .WINE & .VIN Opera already know about the latest ICANN publication (see the link below). Let's hope we have a decision from the board starting June 3, 2014:

"... In response, the NGPC accepted that GAC advice and directed ICANN Staff not to commence the contracting process for the applications for .WINE and .VIN for 60 days. That 60-day hold period, which expires June 3, 2014, was implemented by the NGPC to “provide additional time for the relevant impacted parties to negotiate, which they are encouraged to do.”

ICANN encourages all interested parties to use the 60-day hold period to continue to negotiate and seek common ground and hopes that these efforts will result in improved outcomes to all parties
