"Enough of the old year, enough of the old Internet, let's have some new year fun" says Sedari's chief marketing officer Jennie-Marie Larsen at the launch of the Sedari Guess the Numbers Game.
Speculation over just how many top-level domain name applications will be submitted has been rife over the last year. Some have said hundreds, others optimistically have predicted thousands. The Sedari game allows its web visitors to make a one-time guess on the actual number of top-level domain name applications ICANN will receive between 12 January and 12 April 2012. The correct number will be that announced by ICANN after the closure of this round.
Philip Sheppard, Sedari's policy director urges speed: "Hurry, because a little like domain names themselves, there is only one number available for each guess."
Sedari will announce the name of who got it right on 1 May 2012 coincident with the publication of the list by ICANN.
Sedari is a consulting and technology company focusing on TLD operations for applicants who want to run their own registry. Sedari guides new TLD applicants through the entire continuum of ICANN's application process and, most importantly, provides a robust fully outsourced Registry Services Management Platform to help string owners run their top-level domains over the long term.
