The early roster exhibits a number of competitors for sure domains — we’re seeing a baker’s dozen in corporations making an attempt for .app alone. Amazon, Apple, Microsoft and different corporations are understandably making an attempt to guard their model names, however we’re simply now seeing the complete extent of Google’s gTLD insanity: we’re counting one hundred and one situations through which the search agency has tentatively pulled the $185,000 set off. ICANN nonetheless has to choose which bidders get the domains they need, although, and there isn’t any certainty that Google will fulfill its goals.
