What We Need Your Input On
This Public Comment proceeding seeks input on the proposed Amendment 5 to the .name Registry Agreement. The proposed Amendment 5 is the result of bilateral discussions between ICANN org and Verisign, Inc., the registry operator for the .name top-level domain (TLD).
ICANN org and Verisign entered into the current .name Registry Agreement for the operation of the .name TLD on 1 December 2012 with a term of six years to 15 August 2018. The proposed Amendment 5 to the .name Registry Agreement satisfies the parties' agreement to negotiate certain terms described in Amendment 3 to the .name Registry Agreement, dated 5 August 2020.
Following a review of the Public Comment submissions, ICANN org will prepare a summary report and analysis that will be published on the corresponding proceeding webpage. Input provided will be taken into consideration in ICANN org's decision regarding the proposed Amendment 5 to the .name Registry Agreement.
