Nominet and ICANN work to increase cooperation.


The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and Nominet, the '.uk' domain name registry, have revealed that they are working together to increase cooperation between the two organisations.

The two organisations said that a non-contractual exchange of letters defining a working framework will produce a more stable relationship, acknowledging that Nominet is still fully responsible for all '.uk' domain name policy matters.

In addition, Nominet will join ICANN's country code Names Support Organisation (ccNSO) in order to ensure adequate representation of the '.uk' domain name space in the global Internet arena. It will reportedly be the largest registry to join the ccNSO since it started.

ICANN said the exchange of letters is one of a number of possible accountability frameworks models and claimed its new Accountability Framework programme streamlines the process of formalising relationships with the organisation. It also stated that Nominet's ccNSO application will improve European membership.
