Brief Overview: ICANN is posting the proposed agreement for renewal of the 2006 .asia Registry Agreement for public comment, which is set to expire on 25 March 2020. The .asia 2010 Registry Agreement was originally set to expire in May 2017, and at the time ICANN was in the process of updating the base generic top-level domain (gTLD) Registry Agreement (herein referred to as the base registry agreement). It was mutually agreed that the terms of the .asia 2010 Registry Agreement would be extended while the base registry agreement was finalized, and that both parties would work in good faith to update the agreement in alignment with the base registry agreement as soon as practical. The .asia renewal agreement proposal is a result of bilateral discussions between ICANN and dotAsia Organisation Limited, the Registry Operator for the .asia top-level domain (TLD).
