Public Interest Registry Announces Support for Internet Technical Leaders in Welcoming IANA Globalization Progress

RESTON, Va. --(Business Wire)--

Public Interest Registry, the long-time registry operator of .org, one of the most successful Top Level Domains since the Internet's inception, today announced its support for the statements by leaders of the Internet technical organizations responsible for coordination of the Internet infrastructure (IETF, IAB, ccTLD ROs, ICANN, ISOC and W3C (News - Alert)) regarding the announcement by the U.S. Government to initiate a transition process related to the IANA functions contract.

Public Interest Registry has participated actively in the ICANN community since the registry's outset and has helped to shape and implement Iternet 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 transition process consistent with ICANN's commitment to bottom-up policy making processes and with the four principles as articulated in the NTIA statement. Together, we can build a stronger multi-stakeholder model.
