ICANN’s Open Data Platform Now Live

11 March 2020

LOS ANGELES – 11 March 2020 – Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced the launch of the Open Data Platform. This effort is part of ICANN's Open Data Program (ODP) operationalized by the Office of the Chief Operations Officer. The goal of the Open Data Program is to provide the ICANN community with access to ICANN publicly available data.

This first version of the new platform allows users to search, browse, view, and download the available data, and features analysis and visualization tools. Registered users can access and use the platform for free, here.

Register to obtain access to unique features and tools

Users who register on the platform will enhance their stakeholder journey experience by having access to benefits such as save customized analyses, API keys generation, and API quota usage. Additionally, registration will provide helpful user experience information that will aid in future platform improvements and data availability.

What is coming up in the next release or subsequent launches?

The ICANN organization will continue its assessment of additional datasets for publication on the Open Data Platform, as well as operational improvements, through comments and feedback received from the community. Please explore the new platform and provide feedback, here.


ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. 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.
