Statement On The Successful Privatization Of The Internet Domain Name System

Washington, DC – Internet Association President and CEO Michael Beckerman issued the following statement on the successful privatization of the internet domain name system:

“The Internet industry supports the transition of the IANA functions from NTIA to a multistakeholder governance model with strong accountability measures and controls. The IANA transition is good for U.S. national security, the economy, and for the future of the internet. Our work, however, is not complete. We will work with ICANN and the internet community to ensure the full implementation and success of the multistakeholder governance model.”
