Registry Proof of Concept Reports

The operators of the seven initial "proof of concept" gTLD registries introduced in 2000 have submitted the following proof-of-concept reports. These reports are provided by the registry operators of unsponsored TLDs (.biz, .info, .name, .pro) under Appendix U to their Registry Agreements and by the sponsors of sponsored TLDs (.aero, .coop, and .museum) under Attachment 21 to their Sponsorship Agreements. These reports document the experience of the initial round of new TLD introductions.

Each report is held confidential by ICANN for the period specified in the agreement. Reports are posted as their confidentiality restrictions expire. If the item you seek is not mentioned, please check back occasionally.
