ICANN's gTLD Registry Failover Plan

15 July 2008
Following extensive collaboration and consultation with experienced gTLD 
registries, ccTLD managers, SSAC, and other members of the community, ICANN 
announced the implementable version of the gTLD Registry Failover Plan [PDF, 
85K] during the ICANN Public Forum in Paris, France on 25 June 2008. ICANN is 
today posting the plan for public comment.

Comments on the plan may be submitted to: <registry-failover-plan@xxxxxxxxx>
 through 14 August 2008 23:59 UTC
and may be viewed at http://forum.icann.org/lists/registry-failover-plan/.

ICANN's gTLD Registry Failover Plan is intended to provide protection for 
registrants, and add to the security and stability of the Internet through 
collaboration with registries, registrars and members of the Internet community.
The plan provides a comprehensive guide describing potential ICANN actions in 
specific situations involving a registry and is intended to define the roles of 
registries and ICANN in the event of registry failure. The plan includes 
provisions for: information sharing, situation handling and event management, 
crisis response, communications, business continuity, data escrow and data 
security, TLD and data transition and registry closure.
Going forward, ICANN's FY09 Operating Plan states that a key deliverable during 
FY09 is to "implement [the gTLD] registry failover plan including live testing 
with a registry or registries."
At the conclusion of the comment period, ICANN will move into the 
implementation and testing phase of the project, and will work with experienced 
registries, registrars and others to exercise the plan in Fiscal Year 2008-09.
