Software Glitch Causes ICANN to Extend New gTLD Application Deadline

Due to unusual behaviour with the operation of its TLD Application System (TAS), ICANN announced today that it has shut down the system until Tuesday. ICANN has also extended the submission deadline: "In order to ensure all applicants have sufficient time to complete their applications during the disruption, the application window will remain open until 23:59 UTC on Friday, 20 April 2012."

Update: Apr 20, 2012 – ICANN's Vice President and Chief Security Officer Jeff Moss in a video interview describes the glitch that led to ICANN's take down of the application system for new generic top-level domains (gTLDs). Moss describes the glitch, and elaborates on how ICANN technical teams are working to test a fix for the issue that led to a temporary suspension of the application system on 12 April.
