Beta Testing for Automated Registrar Onboarding System (AROS) to Begin in January 2014

24 December 2013

In an effort to prepare for the upcoming launch of a new Registry/Registrar accreditation tool, ICANN is inviting Registries and Registrars to participate in a Beta Test session of Automated Registrar Onboarding System (AROS). This session will allow users to explore the various accreditation functionalities of the system and provide valuable feedback to ICANN for potential enhancements. The Beta Test will start on 06 January 2014 and continue through 17 January 2014.

Participants who have registered for the AROS Beta Test will receive information from ICANN regarding access instructions, walk-through scripts and user guides. This will enable users to explore all aspects of AROS and provide constructive feedback within a controlled environment.

ICANN has reached out to the registry and registrar stakeholder groups, as well as current Registries and Registrars, to solicit participants for this experience and to inform them on the on-going progress and excitement generated for AROS.
