More new gTLDs were delegated

This has been a strange week working abroad in Iran. Just for the note, Google Apps for Work (the pro version of Gmail) and Twitter are blocked there. For this reason, it was difficult to update readers of this blog and Newsletter with Fresh news. I apologize for this and informed the Google support about this issue.
There was no new gTLD application submitted by Iran in the first Round of the ICANN new gTLD program but sanctions were raised in January 2016 so it now opens the door for this country to participate in the second Round. Jovenet Consulting is considering opening a bureau there but we will come back on this.
