About ICANN

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet.

ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
