NEW YORK (AP) - There’s still no word on when applications will continue for new Internet address suffixes to join “.com” and others in use.

Last week, a technical glitch forced the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which is in charge of domain names, to abruptly shut down a system for letting companies and organizations apply for new names.

The system was supposed to have reopened Tuesday, but ICANN said then that it needed more time to inform applicants that may have been affected by the glitch.

ICANN now says it’s still testing the fix and sifting through the data to determine which applicants were affected. It gave no target date this time. ICANN says it has ruled out hacking as the cause.
