TAS Interruption - Update (4 May 2012)

Statement by Akram Atallah, COO
4 May 2012

The TLD Application System, or TAS, held 2091 applications - either submitted 
or in progress - when it was taken offline on 12 April 2012.

In addition, there are 214 potential applications that were registered prior to 
the 29 March cut-off date, but whose payments have not yet been received or 

ICANN has received approximately USD $350 million in fees for applications for 
new gTLDs.

As we have reported, we are in the process of notifying applicants whether they 
were affected by the software glitch, and plan to complete this process on or 
before Tuesday, 8 May. Shortly after that process is complete, we will announce 
the schedule for reopening TAS and completing the application period. Once the 
system is reopened, we will keep it open for at least five business days.

We appreciate your understanding as we work to bring the TLD application system 
back online.
