- 19 are generic domain name extensions. I included in these applications, the one are restricted and the one that say they are restricted :-)
- 10 are Trademarks (specification 13 of the applicant guidebook);
- The .MEDICAL new gTLD was withdrawn.
I have been asked several times why .RIP ("Rest In Peace" or "Requiescat In Pace") was added to this report and I still have no answer to that question. I wanted to keep an eye on this string because it is the only one that gives websites a perfect identity for a content dedicated to someone who passed away. I wonder when businesses related to the death take advantage of this (online cemeteries, French pompes funèbres...) because these are lucrative and the web is full of messages dedicated to people who passed away. The .RIP new gTLD can give them a strong identity...up to 10 years in packaged offers.
Check the full report here (the report is now available in French too).
