ICANN publishes final Initial Evaluation New gTLD results

ICANN published the final Initial Evaluation (IE) New gTLD results. Out of the initial 1930 New gTLD applications 1783 applications passed the Initial Evaluation. Of course some of the applications were withdrawn before reaching the Initial Evaluation.

33 applications have passed the Extended Evaluation. During EE, applicants have the opportunity to address the outstanding deficiencies on the application. For EE, ICANN has re-engaged all of the firms that performed the Financial, Technical/Operational, Geographic Names, and Registry Services evaluations during IE. EE is performed by these expert, independent firms based on the same criteria used during IE.

272 New gTLD applications have been delegated so far.
