Last month the GMO Registry team headed out to the ICANN offices in Los Angeles to sign the Registry Agreement for .shop. This was a major milestone for us, and ICANN helped us to commemorate the occasion with a signing ceremony.
Six weeks later, we woke up this morning to the fantastic news that .shop had been delegated. This brings us one step closer to making .shop an actual reality and we are excited on this occasion to announce the launch schedule.
