ICANN to Delay Release of New gTLDs, Speeds up Release of IDN ccTLDs

by Frank Michlick in Categories: ICANN / Policy

Tags: , , ,

According to our contacts at the current ICANN meeting in South Korea ICANN staff has announced that the schedule for new gTLDs will be pushed out even beyond Q2/2010 due to the controversy and amount of different opinions and comments from the community.

In the meantime other working groups are pushing ahead to introduce IDN ccTLDs. When the the expansion of the root zones came up, there were no concerns to add as many as 100 zones in a short period of time.

Another topic of discussion is DNSSEC, the signing of the root zones published by the registry as a protection against DNS poisoning attacks.

We also expect the registrar/registry separation to be another big topic at the event. Interestingly enough Afilias seems to be one of the registries pushing to see this issue addressed – the registry operating company running .INFO and .ORG, which is owned by several registrars.
