.xperia among 3 more new gTLDS to be culled by ICANN


Sony Mobile Communications AB and two other companies have requested ICANN to cancel their registry contracts after ditching plans to operate their dot-brand top level domain names.

.Xperia by Sony is a line of mobile phones. The company is still releasing phones under this brand but probably doesn’t need a top level domain name for it.

Portuguese communications company MEO Servicos de Comunicacoes e Multimedia, S.A. has notified ICANN it is abandoning its namesake .Meo as well as .sapo. Sapo is the name of the company’s content portal.

None of the three domains have public second level domains other than nic.”brand”
