The new gTLD .app was delegated to the Root Zone in ICANN's New gTLD Program on 02 July 2015. On 25 February 2015, the applicants for .app entered into an ICANN "auction of last resort" to resolve the contention set for the string.

The auction format was a step auction, as are all ICANN auctions, in which the auctioneer sets a price level for an interval of time and applicants choose whether they are in or out. The auction concludes when only one applicant moves to the next price level.

Google won the auction over the other applicants, with a winning bid of $25,001,000. The proceeds for the auction will go into a separate ICANN fund to be used for a designated purpose. The other applicants for the string were required to withdraw their applications for .app.

ICANN 53 - Edit-a-thon

June, TBD 2015
ICANNWiki is a small team of editors and contributors who have helped shape over 5,000 articles about ICANN, the DNS and Internet governance as a whole. Our goal is to continue to create and collaborate on relevant and educational articles that serve as a touchstone for our community. An edit-a-thon is a small, but powerful tool to start, grow or edit the information on ICANNWiki, and build a community of contributors.

Changes can start small--create or fill in your personal or company page, fix a small error. Or perhaps you have some insight into the history and trajectory of the new gTLD Program? Or, you're at the forefront of initiatives such as NETmundial or have something factual to contribute to our IANA Transition article? Come to our edit-a-thon and choose your level of participation!
