Iron Mountain Prepares For Growth In Number of Generic Top Level Domains

Iron Mountain : 23 June, 2010  (Company News)
Registered data brokerage service available from Iron Mountain in advance of the intended expansion of generic Top Level Domains available from ICANN
Iron Mountain has announced a new tiered offering for its Registry Data Escrow service to meet the needs of registry operators as they introduce new generic top-level domains (gTLDs). With the rapid expansion of Internet use worldwide, ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, is implementing an initiative to expand the domain name space to include an array of new gTLDs. Preparation for the expansion of the gTLD space will be a major theme of the 38th ICANN International Meeting held in Brussels on June 20 - 25, where Iron Mountain will sponsor and exhibit.

ICANN is poised to authorize the creation of potentially hundreds of new gTLDs over the next two to three years, supplementing the 22 gTLDs currently in existence - such as .com, .net and .org. Iron Mountain provides escrow services for the majority of today's gTLDs and will offer its Registry Data Escrow services for the new gTLDs as well.

All gTLDs require daily escrow of their authoritative data as part of their Registry Agreement with ICANN. Iron Mountain's latest offering for its Registry Data Escrow service is based on the number of domain names registered under a given gTLD, rather than on escrow storage space requirements. This will benefit all new registry operators as they create various gTLD types and sizes. Registry operators could base top-level domains on corporate brands (eg, .ironmountain), regional geographies (eg, .brussels), and additional generic designations (eg, .restaurant). Iron Mountain can accommodate both existing and forthcoming domain name registries of all sizes.

"In 2001, Iron Mountain and ICANN created the first registry data escrow program to better protect the integrity of domain name registration data," said John Boruvka, vice president of intellectual property management at Iron Mountain Digital. "Now, Iron Mountain provides Registry Data Escrow services to both new gTLD registries as well as to existing gTLD and global ccTLD registries. By doing so, Iron Mountain will continue to help safeguard the continuity of service across the Internet."

To help the Internet community further understand the impact of new gTLDs, Iron Mountain has developed a white paper on the topic, titled What's Next for the New gTLDs?
