ICANN has published findings from a series of surveys and studies that will serve as inputs for the Competition, Consumer Trust and Consumer Choice Review Team’s assessment of the New gTLD Program. Nielsen conducted two surveys each of global consumer and domain name registrants to better understand their perceived sense of trust, choice and experience in the domain name landscape, and how those opinions changed over the course of a year. In addition, Nielsen surveyed new gTLD applicants about their experiences regarding the New gTLD Program application and evaluation processes. In a separate study, organizations in the developing world were surveyed to provide insight into factors that would motivate program candidates to apply. In this session, study authors will provide a detailed briefing on the results of their inquiries. - Staff Leader: Eleeza Agopian
