applicants for new generic top level domains (gTLDs). This due to the fact that they had mistakenly published the home addresses of many of senior level applicants.

The embarrassing blunder happened after almost 2000 applications were made for the gTLDs. These will offer alternatives to domain names – to .com and .org in domain names. Many corporations and registries like Amazon and Google were in competition to provide popular generic terms, such as .app and others.


ICANN’s manager of gTLD communications Michele Jourdan said “This was an oversight and the files have been pulled down. We are working on bringing them back up again without this information.”


And indeed they have been. A replacement list on the site was published, without the personal details.


However, despite that fact that is now rectified, ICANN have a serious blight on their reputation. ICANN was reportedly informed of the issue within a few hours, however it took over 24 hours for the offending articles to be removed. ICANN say that they handled it fairly, and undertook the correct procedure.
