    The new web suffix application process has been thrown into disarray after the body in charge of the scheme was forced to take its computers offline.

    The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers said "a possible glitch" had allowed a limited number of users to view each other's details.

    Icann said it planned to close down its application system until Wednesday and was extending its application deadline.

    Registered organisations now have until 20 April to apply for the new domains. The process had been scheduled to end at midnight GMT on 12 April.

    "We have learned of a possible glitch in the TLD [top level domain name] application system software that has allowed a limited number of users to view some other users' file names and user names in certain scenarios," Icann's chief operating officer Akram Atallah wrote in a statement.

    "Out of an abundance of caution, we took the system offline to protect applicant data. We apologise for any concern this may have caused and will communicate on a regular basis on our website."
