Updated on 21 December 2012

This page provides links to documents and materials on the batching / metering of new gTLD applications. We will update this page as new information becomes available so please check back frequently.

Current Work on Batching / Metering

A Prioritization Draw (Draw) was held on 17 December 2012 in Los Angeles to assign priority numbers to all new gTLD applications. Each application was assigned a randomly-drawn priority number. These priority numbers will be used to determine the order in which initial evaluation results are released.

Watch Christine Willett, General Manager, New gTLD Program talk about the Draw and what's coming next.
The official results of the Draw are available from the Current Application Status page.

  • Total tickets sold: 1766 out of 1917 active applications
  • Total IDN tickets sold: 108 out of 116
  • Selected charities to receive proceeds from the Draw: Kiva Microfunds, Invenio, & Wikimedia Foundation.
