Afilias Joins Internet Technical Leaders in Welcoming IANA Globalization Progress

Afilias today announced its support for the statements by the Internet technical organizations responsible for coordination of the Internet infrastructure (IETF, IAB, ccTLD ROs, ICANN, ISOC and W3C) regarding the announcement by the U.S. government of the suggested changes related to the IANA functions contract.

As a TLD Registry Operator and a leading registry technology services provider, Afilias has participated in the ICANN community since its inception and has helped to shape and implement Internet policies and practices in a secure and reliable manner consistent with evolving technical standards.

We endorse the statements of the NTIA and the organizations noted above with respect to the maturation of these organizations and processes, and we are committed to continuing to contribute to the stewardship of the Internet as part of a globally inclusive, open and transparent multi-stakeholder community.

We look forward to participating in the development and deployment of the transition plan.
