TLD Universal Acceptance
Based on practical operational experience, not all systems (e.g. browsers, spam filters, registration databases, user profiles, ISPs, etc.) work seamlessly when new TLDs are added. Users may experience failures in resolution or other issues with newer TLDs, which in turn impacts consumer trust on the DNS. The issue of the Universal Acceptance of TLDs (Top-Level Domains) is critically related to the introduction of new gTLDs, as well as the introduction of IDN ccTLDs.
Registrars and Registries, New gTLD Applicants, New IDN ccTLDs.
Abstract: During this session various stakeholders will describe the challenges faced in making full use of new top-level domains, from experiences of those who've started and operated new TLDs, those who produce the software used on the Internet, and experiences of consumers who expect "better." The principle goal of the session is to discuss the problem(s) to solve and the role ICANN will play in attaining a successful state of TLD acceptance.
