Use of a Drawing for Prioritizing New gTLD Applications

Quote:
10 October 2012

After careful analysis of public comment and possible solutions for processing new gTLD applications, ICANN is proposing a plan for prioritizing applications through the steps leading to delegation. The plan describes assignment of priorities through the use of a Draw or Drawing – the priority assigned to each application will be used to schedule the release of initial evaluation results, pre-delegation testing, and contract execution. The proposal seeks to complete processing in an expedited manner, serve the public interest and provide an equitable prioritization mechanism.

The proposed plan is posted for a 30-day comment period.

The plan is posted at http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/applica...10oct12-en.pdf.
The comment forum is at http://www.icann.org/en/news/public-...10oct12-en.htm.
From PDF:

IDNs will be given a priority. Advance release of IDNs promotes DNS diversity, makes the Internet
more accessible, increases avenues of participation and serves the public interest.

wow! love the "IDNs will be given a priority" slap-bang on the first page. Its a shoe-in now, presuming ICANN doesn't cock this one up as well ........

And finally, ICANN actually *has* effectively taken IDNs out of the gTLD expansion program. Better later than never. From the doc:

---------
At what rate will evaluation results be released?

They will be released in weekly sets starting in late March 2013 and are scheduled to finish at the end of June of that year. Those with the lowest Draw Numbers will be released first (after IDNs). Dividing the number of applications by the number of weeks available indicates that approximately 150 evaluation results should be released per week. In the first weeks, the number of releases might be fewer than that because, when the Draw occurs in December, it will cause a re-ordering of evaluations by the panels. We expect that the number released weekly will ramp up quickly.

Why we would adopt a level playing field method and then skew it slightly by saying we're going to prioritize one category of applicant, IDNs?

Prioritization of IDNs is in the global public interest to provide a broader choice to users in countries that do not use the Latin script. IDNs are placed at the head of the line for those people who have not been able to use the Internet either totally or substantially because of historical (by Internet standards) linguistic developments. Also, it is consistent with GAC advice to the Board and is consistent with ICANN’s international outreach strategy.

Re: Use of a Drawing for Prioritizing New gTLD Applications

We did great guys. Not only did ICANN say yes to IDNs but it also effectively said no to Community and Geo TLDs

Re: Use of a Drawing for Prioritizing New gTLD Applications

Which was nice.

So IDN initial evaluations come out on week 3 and 4 of March 2013.

Contract signings after http://beijing46.icann.org/ (7-11 April 2013)

So first delegations around end of April?

It would no surprise me if they actually had some public signings of some Chinese IDN contracts DURING the Beijing meeting. Would be huge PR opp.

Only 180 more sleeps until .ком goes live?

Well, they always were barking up the wrong tree.

They are largely responsible for the most of the confusion and delays, so it seems like poetic justice to me.

Thanks Moshe. Chehade's simple draw approach while giving the 100 and odd IDNs the priority ahead of the non idns is very sensible. He seems like the right man for this job. Glad the old management executives have moved on.

Re: Use of a Drawing for Prioritizing New gTLD Applications

Curious about opinions here about what will change and at what pace once IDN.IDN is implemented.

Once idn.idn gets in the root, what is the catalyst, if any that might make the traffic spike after that happens? Some have predicted big numbers and big change, others thinking it will be minimal. Any guesses on how much it will climb, if more than the steady tick up we have seen over the last few years.

In 2006 the "Holy Grail" was IE7 which was going to make most computers IDN compatable, then in 2008- 2009 it was getting browsers up to critical mass with IE7 or later. I think those both helped get the small traffic we see today, but still a long way to go, not to mention the email snafu that continues to drag on.

I personally think that media coverage and local awareness is the key for the lesser langauges, along with development of IDN sites to get people searching in their own native languages. I think the Chinese figured this out long ago as did the Germans and will be the frontrunners in IDN usage.

Honestly, not really bothered about traffic numbers. As ASCII owners have found out, what goes up always goes down.

Much more interested in the effect IDN.IDN has on end-user offers - quantity and quality.

There will be an overnight (well as soon as new spreads through the press and people "get it") improvement in demand, because very simply put, people are now getting the domains they have wanted for a long time. There is pent-up demand. That is for sure.

But that's only net-savvy business owners and web developers. For the rest of the population, many of whom still know nothing of IDNs, the game-change will only come when local brands start using IDN.IDN and advertise them. That will be the 2nd phase.

Traffic increase? Who knows. Most people here believe in many regions it depends almost entirely on Safari browser behaviour. Its nice to have but if its the basis of your domain name business plan, your plan needs "tweaking".

you really think that?

I think the web will be swamped with more PR releases on "the next new big thing" than you can shake a stick at. There will be 1,500 .fails all trying to grab market share and mindset.

There's a real risk that any .IDN news will get drowned out in the noise.
When the dust has settled, and the gTLDs that are needed are the only ones left standing, then yes, maybe then. But that doesn't sound like overnight to me.

Things do change rapidly. A few years ago Rick was saying that the Chinese Economy was not worth bothering about.

Now China produces more cars than the US and Japan Combined.

It is only a matter of time before the last light goes off in Detroit.
