ICANN hunkers down on two-character second-level domains

06 March 2015

World Trademark Review
In 2014 ICANN voted to implement an efficient procedure for the release of two-character second-level domains by new gTLD registries, a move that came in light of an apparent lack of opposition from governments and the Government Advisory Committee (GAC).
