What We Need Your Input On
The Universal Acceptance (UA) Roadmap for Domain Name Registry and Registrar Systems proposes how to test these systems for UA-readiness, based on the Universal Acceptance Readiness Framework. A registry and a registrar system are tested and the results are reported in appendices. The study is published for review and feedback by the relevant technical community.

Universal Acceptance (UA) means that all software applications support all valid domain names and email addresses. This study focuses on the technical details for the systems used by registries and registrars to manage domains under generic top-level domains (gTLDs). This work follows-up on the white paper The Role of Country Code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs) in Achieving Universal Acceptance, published by Asia Pacific TLD Association (APTLD) in collaboration with ICANN org, and may generally apply to the ccTLD registry and registrar environments as well.
The UA roadmap will be finalized based on the input received and published for reference of domain name registries and registrars. The roadmap will be shared with relevant stakeholders to encourage them to become UA-ready.
