V. PROPOSED REGISTRY SERVICES
C25. Describe each Registry Service (as defined in subsection 1.16 of the model .org Registry Agreement) that you propose to provide for a fee. For an example of a description of this type, see <http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/name/registry-agmt-appc-1-03jul01.htm>.
The model .org Registry Agreement defines "Registry Services" as “services provided as an integral part of the operation of the Registry TLD, including all sub-domains. . . . In determining whether a service is integral to the operation of the Registry TLD, consideration will be given to the extent to which the Registry Operator has been materially advantaged in providing the service by its designation as such under this Agreement. The development of technology, expertise, systems, efficient operations, reputation (including identification as Registry Operator), financial strength, or relationships with registrars and third parties shall not be deemed an advantage arising from the designation. Registry Services include: receipt of data concerning registration of domain names and nameservers from registrars, provision to registrars of status information relating to the Registry TLD, dissemination of TLD zone files, operation of the Registry TLD zone servers, dissemination of contact and other information concerning domain-name and nameserver registrations in the Registry TLD, and such other services required by ICANN [through the consensus policy process].”
For the basic fee described in C26, the DotOrg Foundation proposes to provide all of the services defined as “Registry Services” as well as certain additional services that are covered by the Registry Agreement.
A. Registry Services
DotOrg Foundation will provide an essential set of services in conjunction with the basic registration fee. These include receipt of data concerning registrations of domain names and nameservers from registrars; provision to registrars of status information relating to .org; dissemination of TLD zone files; operation of the .org zone servers; and dissemination of contact and other information concerning domain name and name server registrations in the TLD. These services are provided by the SRS, Whois, and DNS subsystems.
Shared Registry System
The SRS allows registrars to obtain information relating to the status of names within the .org TLD, to perform the registration of new domain names; to modify, delete, or renew existing registrations; and to initiate the transfer of a domain name from another registrar. Registry Advantage will provide the SRS service from its primary location in New York as well as from its secondary location that it plans in Asia. The SRS is described in detail in Question C17.2 of this proposal.
Registry Advantage will operate a global constellation of eight name servers to provide domain name resolution services. Zone data for the .org TLD will be automatically distributed to satellite name server locations on a near real time basis. The zone generation and distribution process is described in detail in Questions C17.4 and C17.5.
Whois – Registry Advantage will operate Whois servers at its primary location in New York as well as at its secondary site. The Whois servers provide a publicly available lookup service that allows any Internet user to obtain contact and other information concerning domain name and name server registrations within the .org TLD. The Whois service is described in detail in Question C17.8.
In order to support these fundamental registry services, Registry Advantage will provide a robust registry operation, including the following elements:
B. Bulk Whois Access
Bulk Whois data will be made available via either FTP or HTTP. The distribution servers will be operated at the primary location in New York.
C. Zone File Access
