On Friday, ICANN announced the approval of two new Top-Level Domain designations: .jobs and .travel. This approval was done during the ICANN International conference, which is held in Argentina.

Not only have they approved new domains, ICANN is also addressing other candidates for domain naming rights. The following is ICANN’s release, detailing their actions:

ICANN is pleased to announce the designation of two new sponsored Top-Level Domains, .JOBS and .TRAVEL. The ICANN Board approved the designation at the 22nd ICANN International conference in Mar del Plata, Argentina.

The announcement marks the culmination of the independent evaluation and contract negotiation process for these two sponsored Top-Level Domains that was outlined in an ICANN request that solicited proposals for new registries. The new registry operators are Employ Media and Tralliance Corporation.

As the process for selecting new sponsored Top Level Domain (sTLDs) continues from a pool of ten applications, ICANN has already entered into commercial and technical negotiations with the following additional candidate registries, .CAT, .POST & .MOBI.

Discussions continue among ICANN Board and Staff regarding the evaluation of five additional proposed sponsored Top Level Domains (sTLDs): .ASIA, .MAIL, .TEL, .TEL, & .XXX.
