[news release] ICANN org has extended the date that Registry Reports will permanently move to ICANN Open Data to 30 July 2021. This means Registry Reports will still be available on https://icann.org on the Registry Reports landing page beyond the previously announced 15 March deadline. The extension gives the community more time to adjust to the upcoming changes announced on 7 January 2021. On 30 July 2021, ICANN Open Data will become the permanent home of Registry Reports.
Background on Registry Reports
Registry operators provide a set of monthly reports per generic top-level domain name (gTLD) to ICANN org. The monthly reports include the Per-Registrar Transactions Report and Registry Functions Activity Report. ICANN org publishes these reports on a monthly basis, three months after the end of the month to which the reports provided by the registry operators relate. This is done to preserve the confidentiality of the reported information during that period as required by the registry agreement.
Monthly reports consist of data that reflects the state of the registry at the end of the month. For additional information about the data contained in these reports, please see Specification 3 of the Base gTLD Registry Agreement found on the Registry Agreement landing page.
ICANN’s mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
