Negotiations of Proposed .biz and .info Registry Agreements Completed

The negotiations between ICANN and the registry operators for the new .biz and .info top-level domains have resulted in completed registry agreements. The agreements and their supporting appendices may be viewed at <http://www.icann.org/tlds/>. The agreements are undergoing a final, seven-day review by the ICANN Board before being signed. We expect the operators of these TLDs to make announcements regarding their start-up schedules in May.
