2100 New gTLD Applications. What Does It Mean?

- IDNs would be sparsely represented in the first batch.

- IDNs
IDN applicants, in our calculation, represent another 100+ applicants. We know already of applicants for Russian, Chinese and Arabic strings. While we don't have very good knowledge about these applicants, our cloudy crystal ball says that the number of IDN applications will be around 10% of the total, or 200, and that on average IDN applicants will have 2 applications each. We foresee limited competition between IDNs, and by definition little competition with Latin-characters gTLDs. Note that IDNs could represent brands as well as generic terms and niche products, this is factored into our estimate of 100 applicants, 200 apps.

It means that the cottage industry of consultants that sprung up almost overnight made some serious dosh.

If contentious applications go first, it is sort of WIN WIN.

It means either we will know what Verisign has applied for and will almost certainly get immediately, and therefore the landrush in IDN.com can start immediately.

Or their contentious application will be in the first batch, which means IDN version of dot com will be going into the root very early next year. Again, the landrush will start well before the IDN extensions go live.
