ICANN designated two new sponsored Top-Level-Domains (sTLDs): .jobs and .travel.

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.
