Prior to 2003, the '''Domain Name Supporting Organization''' ('''DNSO''') was one of the three [[ICANN]] [[SO|supporting organizations]] called for under the [[ICANN Bylaws]].<ref>[]</ref> It has since been replaced by the [[GNSO|Generic Names Supporting Organization]] (GNSO).<ref>[]</ref> The DNSO advised the ICANN Board about handling issues related to the [[DNS|Domain Name System]] (DNS). Its primary agenda was to discuss how and when to expand the Internet by adding new [[TLD]]s beyond [[.com]].<ref name="link2">[]</ref>
The DNSO chair at the time of restructuring, [[Thomas Roessler]], wrote "At some point of time between 9:10 and 9:40 a.m. Amsterdam time on Sunday [15 December 2002], the DNSO ceased to be (and will, perhaps not unlike a phoenix from the ashes, become the GNSO).." His entire farewell email can be found [ here].
== Structure ==
The DNSO was comprised of two bodies: the Names Council (NC), which was made up of elected representatives from the DNSO Constituencies, and the General Assembly (GA), made up of all interested entities and individuals.<ref name="link2">[]</ref>
One of the biggest complaints with the structuring of the DNSO came from [[ccTLD]] registry operators, who felt that the SO was mainly concerned with gTLDs and that they needed their own separate organization. On October, 29, 2002, the country could code managers emphasized their dissatisfaction by withdrawing completely from the DNSO.<ref>[ Elections,]</ref> This action prompted and expedited the transition to the [[GNSO]], which was created in December, 2002. Work began on creating the [[Country Code Names Supporting Organization]] (ccNSO) in September, 2002, culminating in the creation of the ccNSO at [[ICANN Montreal]] in June, 2003.<ref>[]</ref>
