Final Application for Recognition of the gTLD Registry Constituency
The Generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) Registry constituency consists of
non-governmental entities directly responsible as registries for gTLD zones
in the Domain Name System. Since the NSI Registry is currently the only
constituent of the gTLD Registry constituency (serving .com, .net, and
.org), it is unnecessary at this time to elaborate a structure and process
and, also for that reason, we request that the Board waive application
of any geographic diversity requirements to this constituency at this time.
However, NSI is committed to the notion of increasing the gTLD's and encourages
ICANN to make such expansion a top priority. The constituency will propose
further procedures when additional constituents are added. NSI Registry
plans in the meantime to maintain an open site and moderated list for the
purpose of publishing and discussing DNSO policies and positions. Following
recognition, the gTLD Registry constituency will submit a list of selected
members of the Names Council representing the gTLD constituency, to serve
until such time as procedures are changed to reflect the addition of new
