Public Comment: Single, Two and Select Three Character Names in .PRO
6 May 2009
ICANN is today opening a public comment forum on a proposed amendment from
RegistryPro to Appendix C and K of the .PRO Registry Agreement.
On 8 April 2009, ICANN posted for public information a request submitted by
RegistryPro through the Registry Services Evaluation Process (RSEP). The
request calls for a phased allocation process for single, two and select three
character names in .PRO.
The RegistryPro proposal is available at
http://www.icann.org/registries/rsep/registry-pro-08apr09-en.pdf [PDF, 132K].
As provided for by existing consensus policy
(http://www.icann.org/en/registries/rsep/rsep.html), ICANN performed a
preliminary review to determine whether the proposal might raise significant
security, stability, or competition issues. ICANN's determination is that the
proposal does not raise such issues.
[Note that, from 13 June to 13 July 2008, ICANN conducted a public comment
forum on a proposed single-character second-level domain names allocation
which supported the allocation single-character second-level domain names in
existing registries and reviewed various allocation methods.]
The proposal requires an amendment the .PRO Schedule of Reserved Names
(Appendix K) and a description of the phased allocation program is proposed to
be inserted in Section 12 of Appendix C. A copy of the proposed contract
amendment is available here [PDF, 100K]. Comments on the proposed amendment may
be submitted to pro-alloc-amendment at icann.org through 5 June 2009 23:59 UTC.
Comments may be viewed at http://forum.icann.org/lists/pro-alloc-amendment/.
