Global Domains Division or GDD is a division of ICANN which oversees generic domain operations, domain name industry engagement and Web services, with the goal of having all of these pieces coming together under one umbrella in order to improve efficiencies and to serve both registries and applicants better.[1]

At ICANN 51 in Los Angeles, the division's growth resulted in a record number of programmed sessions.[2] To expand upon this further, it held its inaugural GDD Industry Summit in September 2015 in Santa Monica, CA.[3]
