names.co.uk reveals Google’s letter to ICANN saying .app and .search will be shared with the wider Internet community

names.co.uk, one of the UK’s top domain name registrars, has today confirmed that Google will have to compromise on its share of generic Top Level Domains on the Internet, after attending today’s 46th ICANN meeting in Beijing (http://beijing46.icann.org).

Google has previously made a play for some of the most valuable new Top Level Domains including .app, .search, .blog and .cloud. Last night it became clear that the Internet giant would have to compromise its original commercial vision to stay in the race to control these key domains. In a surprise U-turn Google presented a letter to ICANN publishing their intention to offer a concession to their proposals for controlling closed generic terms .app .search .blog and .cloud.
