Likely Delay for US Handover of ICANN Web Domain Oversight


Joanne Ludovici said that because of the US government’s plan to give up its oversight of the Internet’s domain name system, “companies are unnerved … There’s a fear of the unknown.”

Citing Congressional efforts to delay the planned move, Ms. Ludovici continued, “I suspect at some point they’ll extend the date for when the transition is supposed to happen. I can’t see it happening at all in 2015.”
