Docket No. 060519136-6136-01

The Continued Transition of the Technical Coordination
and Management of the Internet Domain Name and
Addressing System

AGENCY: National Telecommunications and Information
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce

ACTION: Notice of Inquiry, Notice of Public Meeting

SUMMARY: The United States Department of Commerce’s
National Telecommunications and Information
Administration (NTIA) seeks comment on the
continuation of the transition of the technical
coordination and management of the Internet domain
name and addressing system (Internet DNS) to the
private sector. In June 1998, the Department issued a
statement of policy on the privatization of the
Internet DNS, which among other things articulated
four primary functions for global Internet DNS
coordination and management, the need to have these
functions performed by the private sector and four
principles to guide the transition to private sector
management of the Internet DNS. On June 30, 2005,
NTIA released the U.S. Principles on the Internet’s
Domain Name and Addressing System further elaborating
on these issues. The Department of Commerce seeks
comment regarding the progress of this transition and
announces a public meeting to be held on July 26,
2006, to discuss issues associated with this
transition.

DATES: Comments are due on or before July 7, 2006.
The public meeting will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00
p.m. on July 26, 2006.

mail to Fiona Alexander, Office of International
Affairs, National Telecommunications and Information
Administration, 1401 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Room
4701, Washington, DC 20230. Paper submissions should
