Concise Description:
The Top Level Domain ecosystem has gone through many changes and challenges during the past 20 years. Local community support, relations with the governmental authorities, management of the IANA service by ICANN including the delegation and re-delegation processes, de-regulating internal policies and procedures to allow registrations from registrants based not only in the ccTLD country, security concerns and the solution to respond to most of them by implementing the DNSSEC protocol, , alternative dispute resolution processes, multilingualism and the introduction of the ICANN IDN ccTLD Fast Track: Those as well as many others are the topics which characterized the life of the TLDs in the past years. Most of the ccTLDs operators have matured and grown. They have reached stakeholder consensus at multiple levels and improved the dialogue both with ICANN and also with other international bodies and organizations which over the years have started to get involved in the internet management. They have found great channels to profile themselves and to share industry best practices.
But what is next? What are the challenges of the years to come? How can developing regions benefit from the lessons learned? How will TLDs cope with new internet forces and scenarios like the new gTLD round ICANN is about to launch, the social networks, the security issues and at the same time the scarce end-user awareness of the attacks that may impact the domain world, the role of governments when internet is perceived as a threat and, on the other hand, the usefulness of the network when contingencies arise? Which developments and opportunities should African ccTLDs prepare for?
The workshop aims to present several TLD approaches to the next decade changes and challenges to point out the variety of the ccTLD scenario. At the same time, it will highlight that sharing industry best practices – mainly via the ccTLD regional organizations and dedicated TLD sites – is a key factor in determining the further development of TLDs from emerging countries.
