Neustar to Launch usTLD Stakeholder Council

On February 28, 2014, the United States Department of Commerce awarded Neustar a contract to continue managing .US, the United States Country-Code Top Level Domain ("usTLD").

In its plan to manage the usTLD, Neustar proposed to create a stakeholder council ("usTLD Stakeholder Council") to ensure that the usTLD remains a trusted space for all Americans and to facilitate stakeholder input into usTLD policies. Proposed responsibilities of the usTLD Stakeholder Council include recommending policies and improvements, ensuring that the needs registrants are reflected, enhancing the user experience and utility, and discussing emerging DNS issues.

Neustar looks forward to broadening stakeholder participation in policy development for the usTLD. We are eager to work with stakeholders including registrants, civil society, business owners, law enforcement, and more to ensure that the management of the usTLD continues to evolve and reflect the needs of the usTLD community.

In this spirit, Neustar has issued a call for Expressions of Interest ("EoI") for prospective participants in the usTLD Stakeholder Council. Concurrently, Neustar has issued a Notice of Inquiry ("NOI"), seeking community input regarding the usTLD Stakeholder Council's proposed composition, guiding principles and policies, operating procedures, and deliverables. Responses to both the call for EoIs and the NOI should be sent to stakeholdercouncil@neustar.us.

Please direct any questions regarding the usTLD Stakeholder Council to Stephanie Duchesneau at stephanie.duchesneau@neustar.us or at (202) 533-2623.
