Case Studies

As part of ICANN's global efforts to raise awareness of, and interest in new gTLDs, all registries are invited to partner with us to develop case studies. These case studies tell the story of a TLD, including its background and business objectives. They are intended for use as educational resources. We will continue to publish new case studies on this webpage on an ongoing basis.
