Application 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 were used to determine the order in which initial evaluation results are released.

The official results of the Draw are available at the Current Application Status page.
