Important Issues

Domain Privacy

The protocols and policy surrounding WHOIS have not changed much since its conception in the ARPANET days, but its use has changed dramatically. The resource is increasingly used for originally unintended purposes,including law enforcement, domain solicitation and data mining. This has caused some to register their domains through privacy/proxy registration services.

Recently the use of these services has become a center of debate. Some stakeholders would like to see restrictions placed on the use of privacy/proxy registrations, while others defend the importance of privacy for registrants.

Additional Reading:

IANA Transition

Since the NTIA announced on March 14, 2014 that it intended to transition stewardship of the IANA functions to the global stakeholder community, ICANN has set its sights on developing a proposal that meets the requirements set forth by the NTIA.

A successful proposal will be required to have broad community support and sufficiently address four key principles:

  • Support and Enhance the Multistakeholder Model;
  • Maintain the security, stability, and resiliency of the Internet DNS;
  • Meet the needs and expectation of the global customers and partners of the IANA services; and,
  • Maintain the openness of the Internet.

The transition was originally set to take place on 30 September 2015, but the NTIA extended the contract to expire 30 September 2016, giving ICANN more time to prepare for the transition. This promises to be an important topic to watch at this meeting.

Additional Reading:

Accountability

Since it was created, ICANN has been held accountable by the US government's control of the IANA functions. The process of maintaining this accountability after the IANA transition occurs is an extremely important step to be taken before the transition can move forward. Concerns raised by the community during transition discussions have indicated that the accountability measures currently in place do not meet the expectations of stakeholders. Since “broad community support” is a requirement set forth by the NTIA, a disagreement on accountability could be a sticking point that continues to delay the transition Recently, the community proposed a “Sole Member model” as a way to ensure ICANN is held accountable to its stakeholders, but this proposal was met with resistance by the ICANN board.

New gTLD Program

ICANN’s New gTLD Program was introduced in 2012 as a way to open up competition in the domain name markets. Rather than rely solely on the standard .com, .edu, etc., the new gTLDs have delivered broader options in meaning for consumers. Now that the first round of gTLDs have concluded, domainers and industry professionals have their eye on the future of these extensions--will these new top level domains edge into the mainstream, what are their best uses, and how will they succeed after so many years of .com?

Equally important are the reviews of the New gTLD Program. Focus of the reviews include topics such as rights protection, program implementation, security and stability, and consumer trust and choice, and competition.

Finding the Next CEO

In May 2015, ICANN announced that Fadi Chehade will be stepping down in March 2016, prior to the end of his contract which was set to expire in June 2017. ICANN established a search committee at ICANN 53 in Buenos Aires, to begin identifying candidates to fill the vacancy. The application period closed on 20 September 2015, beginning the selection process.
