[news release] Top-level domain (TLD) business management company Sedari has partnered with Digital Archery Experts, LLC (DAE) to offer its clients a digital archery service for applicants in the ICANN 2012 round for new TLDs. ICANN has the administrative capacity to process 500 applications at a time but has received over 2000 applicants and requires a system of prioritisation. Under new rules ICANN decided upon a uniquely complex system called digital archery, whereby a split-second variance between a chosen and an actual time will determine priority. DAE offers a technology solution to applicants designed to hit a desired timestamp target within milliseconds.
âThis is great news for Sedari to be able to offer the Digital Archery solution to our global clients who we have helped through the application processâ said Liz Williams, Sedari CEO. âWe know success in qualifying for batch one will require a sophisticated technology solution such as the one DAE has developed and it is our pleasure to partner with Sedari to offer our solution to their clientsâ commented Peter LaMantia, founding partner of Digital Archery Experts, LLC.
