ICANN will protect the Dot Gay

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) handles the creation of new top level domains (TLD) to rival .com and .org. 

ICANN has agreed to reconsider an application to protect the ‘.gay’ domain, after fears it would be sold off.

Remember, the Internet authority was criticized in October when it refused to hand over control of the ‘dot gay’ domain to the LGBT community and put it up for auction to a number of commercial bidders.

This week agreed to re-consider the domain for the ‘Community Priority Evaluation’ process, after admitting to flaws in the first process.

We will see...
