DNSO Names Council Whois Survey
The ICANN Domain Names Supporting Organization (DNSO) is conducting a study of the Internet domain-name system's Whois system, which provides information about registrations of domain names. The DNSO invites you to participate by filling out a survey posted on the ICANN website. The survey is currently available in the English and Spanish languages and will be available in additional languages soon.
The survey was designed to solicit input from as many people as possible concerning the use of Whois service, and to assess whether changes should be considered to the current Whois policy adopted by ICANN.
The comment period is open NOW until 31 July 2001. Be sure to be heard! Participate!
