The closing submission to register for ICANN’s elite and pricey brand-centric generic top level domains (gTLDs ) has been extended, due to a software snafu.

The deadline has been extend by a week after a software glitch brought down the application submission system.

ICANN said yesterday that after spotting the disturbance it would be taking the system offline until Tuesday to try and resolve the problem.

The application window will remain open until 23:59 UTC on Friday, 20 April 2012.

“ICANN constantly monitors the performance of the TLD Application System (TAS). Recently, we received a report of unusual behavior with the operation of the TAS system. We then identified a technical issue with the TAS system software,” the domain giant said.

ICANN is due to publish a full list of the gTLD applications later this month which will feature most of the world’s major brands.

Under the procedure applicants invest an initial fee of around $US200,000 for the pleasure, which includes a non-refundable evaluation fee of $US185,000 and $US5,000 deposit fee per requested application slot when registering. Once approved the annual ICANN fee starts at $US25,000.
