All of Thomsen Trampedach’s gTLD clients by far exceeded the threshold for passing ICANN’s evaluation in the 2012 round. A gTLD application in the 2012 round typically consisted of 250 pages and around 50 supporting documents.
Thomsen Trampedach will assist in drafting the application and all supporting documents, including all required policies and contracts such as
— Registration and use policies
— Anti-Abuse Policies
— DNSSEC policies
— Launch policies
— Premium name policies
— Terms and conditions
— Registry-Registrar agreements
Guiding through evaluation and potential objections
In the 2012 round we successfully guided our gTLD clients through the application process and also through unforeseen obstacles such as GAC advice (sensitive strings, closed generics), clarifying questions (enhanced security measurements), name collision occurrence management, geo-panel objections, legal rights objections, community priority objections and auctions.
We can assist you in finding the right registry service provider to fit your needs. Most of our clients work with CentralNIC, who offers a flexible, stable and secure gTLD platform at a fair price.
