Craig Schwartz, Managing Director fTLD Registry Services

In 2008, ICANN approved a program to offer on the Internet thousands of new generic Top-Level Domains in addition to existing ones such as .COM and .ORG.

Recognizing what this could mean to financial institutions, their customers and Internet users, a coalition of banks, insurance companies and financial services trade associations formed a partnership to establish fTLD Registry Services in order to apply for and operate the .BANK and .INSURANCE gTLDs on behalf of the global banking and insurance communities.

fTLD – a top level domains registry – was granted the right [...]
