Next Round Of New gTLD Private Auctions Take Place This Week TLDH Is in 4 Of Them

Posted on the 12 August 2013 by Worldwide @thedomains


The 2nd round of the private new gTLD auctions to resolve contention being run by Applicant Auction takes place this week starting Tuesday and a second participant has stepped forward to publicly say they are participating.

Top Level Domain Holdings (LON:TLDH) is participating in private auctions for .GUIDE, .CASA, .网址 (which means web address in Chinese) and .FISHING.

Donuts the largest applicant for new gTLD announced a few weeks ago that they were committing 68 new gTLD’s that they applied to this 2nd round of auctions.

In the first round of auctions only 6 strings were resolved after a four day auction resulted in a total of $9 Million dollars in bids.

TLDH was one of the largest applicants for new gTLD’s and has several geographic names such as .london, .miami, .bayern .nrw, and .budapest locked up.

I’m sure we will get some more announcements of who maybe participating in the auction and we should be getting results by no later than next week as to what strings were resolved and the total price paid at auction.
