Valideus helps brand owners, professional associations and community leaders to evaluate the ICANN new gTLD opportunity, to navigate the application process and to manage secure registries. We also provide registrant validation services, consultancy on policy and training.



It cost $185,000 in official fees to ICANN to apply for a new GTLD registry. Then there’s the cost of advisors, legal and operational, plus the charges of the technical back end operator and the escrow provider. Add this up and you get to something like $350,000 before selling a single domain…for which activity you also need sales, marketing and operational resource.
