Comment Period Open on Suspension

Categories: Blog

The usTLD Stakeholder Council is seeking comments on its recommendation to continue the suspension of the namespace through the end of the current .US contract term.

The recommendation follows a report of the Education Advisory Committee advising that the restrictive namespace was not built to thrive in today’s Internet landscape and should remain suspended. A temporary suspension of the namespace has been in effect since 2012, following a dramatic decline in usage of the namespace.

As part of the comment period the Stakeholder Council is also seeking comments on how .US can be leveraged to support America’s next generation.

Further details and background can be found on the comment page and comments can be provided through June 13, 2015 by emailing
