ICANN Releases Beta TLD Verification Tool

Today ICANN released a beta version Top-Level Domain (TLD) Verification Tool. This verification tool has been developed in response to problems reported by gTLD registries and end-users of the non-acceptance of some existing TLDs. These problems occur in some current applications because: 1) they do not recognize any TLD of more than three characters; or, 2) they rely on legacy information where only com/net/org and a handful of ccTLDs are recognized as valid.

It would be interesting if the tool was actually available.

There isn't a reason why the tool was retracted, but it must have something to do with the ITU. Anyone care to explain?

It should be up within a day.

It had nothing to do with the ITU (not even sure where that supposition might have come from).

Anyone care to explain?

Various issues were discovered in the code and we decided to pull it down while a revised version was prepared.

No conspiracies here.

No consipiracies assumed. All references linked to on the page were to the ITU conference. It was a logical conclusion.

Code problems happen. And make sense. Thanks for clearing that up. The announcement was odd.
