Afilias the company which run the .info gTLD have submiitted an application for new Registry Services to ICANN. The application is called the Phased Equitable Reallocation of Non-Compliant .INFO Sunrise Domain Names (pdf) and is a request for the Registry to be allowed to allocate names to developers and/or auction domain names which have remained suspended since the launch of .info in 2001.

Most if not all of the names in question show a registration date between 25th July 2001 to 27th August 2001, usually have a status marked “HOLD” and “TRANSFER PROHIBITED”.  Any many of these names have the Registrant Name marked as “Afilias Ltd / Sunrise Pending Reallocation”
