Subject: Number of current registrar applications
Dear gTLD Registry Operators and Sponsors,
In July 2004, I wrote to you to let you know about a substantial increase in the number of applications for ICANN registrar accreditation. As you have seen over the past few months, the number of applications has stabilized, but still continues at a higher level than the historical average. As of today, ICANN has approximately 60 pending applications in our "queue."
Based on past trends, we expect that almost all of these applications will be approved over the next couple of months. I hope this information will be helpful to you in your planning. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Chief gTLD Registry Liaison
