ICANN's TLD Plans Are Defined, Not Yet Refined
September/October 2008 (vol. 12 no. 5)
pp. 10-12
The ICANN board of directors' recent decisions to greatly expand the number of generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) and fast-track some country-code TLDs (ccTLDs) using internationalized characters illustrates that ICANN has stumbled into a quagmire; that is, in hoping to satisfy constituent groups' demands for expanded TLDs, it might expose profound procedural shortcomings that it must fix or suffer the consequences.
Index Terms:
ICANN, Top-Level Domains, TLDs, country-code Top-Level Domains, ccTLDs
