Mit ICANN’s neuem CEO Rod Beckstom hatten wir bereits auf dem ICANN Meeting in Sydney über .berlin gesprochen. Nun hat er sich bei uns mit einer persönlichen Nachricht für unsere aktive Rolle bei der Entwicklung neuer Top-Level-Domains bedankt. Hier die Originalnachricht:
Thank you for your thoughtful comments regarding the introduction of new generic top-level domain names into the market place.
We are considering your comments, along the many others we have received, in the context of the development of the next version of the Draft Applicant Guidebook, preparations for which are advancing and is scheduled to be published prior to the ICANN meeting in Seoul.
As you will appreciate, the New gTLD Program is a significant undertaking and we are progressing step by step to ensure that all the sectors in the community are provided an opportunity to contribute. Also, all potential issues are understood and resolved before launching what will surely be a substantial shift in the domain name system.
While we still have work ahead of us, we are confident that with your and the Internet community’s continuing participation, the New gTLD Program will be launched in a manner that enhances competition and choice for Internet users, broadens regional participation through the introduction of IDNs and community based TLDs, and protects the rights and interests of all.
Again, thank you for your participation in the process and if you have any further questions regarding the introduction of new gTLDs, please send these to firstname.lastname@example.org.
President & CEO
