ICANN’s priortisation draw was conducted today to determine the order in which the applicants for the generic Top Level Domains will be processed.
Non-English applications were drawn first to facilitate ICANN’s strategy of increasing internationalisation of the internet. Thereafter it was a random draw.
.physio was drawn in the middle of the group, at number 929 out of over 1,900 applications. Early predictions are that .physio will be available in late 2013/early 2014.
