So this is it, the moment we’ve all been waiting for is just a little more than a day away.  ICANN plans to reveal who applied for what during a live event being held in London on Wednesday June 13.

News from applicants and service providers has been flooding the wire since the official close of the application period on May 30th.   Here is a summary of what we know a day out from the big Reveal Day:

 

Finally, on the homefront here in Japan, GMO Internet in Japan has applied for several geographic TLDs, including .tokyo, .osaka, .nagoya, and .yokohama.  The company has poured lots of cash in its bid for .Shop as well.  GMO has relationships with several large brands in Japan and secured Canon and Hitachi early on in.  (Back-end system is believed to be CloudRegistry)

Reveal Day is just another small step in a long process. After the strings are fully announced tomorrow applicants will have their work cut out. Let the contention resolution begin!
