ICANN Approves Registry Agreement For New gTLDs


ICANN's New generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) program has reached another milestone with passage of the 2013 Registry Agreement. The new baseline agreement was approved by the New gTLD Program Committee of the ICANN Board of Directors.

"New gTLDs are now on the home stretch," said Chris Disspain, a member of ICANN's New gTLD Program Committee. "This new Registry Agreement means we've cleared one of the last hurdles for those gTLD applicants who are approved and eagerly nearing that point where their names will go online."

The new Registry Agreement includes a Trademark Clearinghouse that will serve as a one-stop shop where trademark holders can protect their rights. It also provides for a process for an efficient way to take down infringing domain names. A procedure where trademark rights holders can assert claims directly against a registry operator for domain name abuse if that operator has played an active role in the abuse has been also included. According to the agreement, registry operators are also required to have a single point of contact responsible for handling abuse complaints.

"We're getting to the point now where new gTLD applicants can see the finish line," said Akram Atallah, President of the ICANN's Generic Domains Division. "Much like the 2013 Registrar Accreditation Agreement approved by the Board last week, this new Registry Agreement is the culmination of input from a wide range of stakeholders and marks a dramatic improvement over the previous baseline agreement."

The New gTLD Registry Agreement also includes security provisions:

- A requirement that registry operators implement Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC), reducing so-called "man-in-the-middle" attacks and spoofed DNS records.

- A requirement of enhanced WHOIS service at the registry level with a common interface, and more rapid search capabilities, facilitating efficient resolution of malicious activities.
