ICANN announces changes to the Public Comment on Short-term Options for the timeline of ICANN reviews. ICANN has removed the Registration Directory Service Review (RDS-WHOIS2) options and references and posted an updated Short-term Public Comment at the request of the Review Team. Any comments regarding the RDS-WHOIS2 request should be addressed to the RDS-WHOIS2 Review Team at email@example.com (publicly archived).
The Public Comment periods on both the modified Short-term Options and Long-term Options remain open and we encourage all stakeholders to contribute.
The Public Comment on Short-term Options to adjust the Timeline for Specific Reviews will close on 6 July 2018.
The Public Comment period on Long-term Options to Adjust the Timeline of Reviews will close on 20 July 2018.
Please also join ICANN for a webinar and Q&A about both Short-term and Long-term Options for the Timelines of ICANN Reviews. The presentation will be identical for both one-hour webinars, scheduled as follows:
- Webinar 1: 07 June 2018: 05:00-06:00 UTC [local time]
- Webinar 2: 07 June 2018:17:00-18:00 UTC [local time]
Archives of these webinars will be posted here.
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 â a name or a number â 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.
