Proposed Final Applicant Guidebook
ICANN Final Proposed Applicant Guidebook is now on Version 5 , developed over a number of years through its bottom up , multistakeholder model .It is indeed complex.

Each potential new gTLD application is faced with a complex process with stringent financial ,technical and operational requirements for assessment by independent evaluators .

Each potential application is a start up business , since it is unlikely that running a gTLD registry is its core business and would not have the required skills in house . Therefore each applicant needs to put forward a business case .
