Topic:  Contracted Party Agreements

Background

A registry operator of a top-level domain (TLD) must enter a contract (i.e. Registry Agreement - RA) with ICANN in order to operate and maintain a generic TLD (gTLD).

Registrars that offer domain name registration services with a direct access to TLD registries are also required to obtain accreditation from ICANN (i.e. Registrar Accreditation Agreement - RAA).

ICANN’s Contractual Compliance Department ensures registries and registrars are in compliance with those agreements.

The RA and RAA are also subject to changes by consensus policy developed through the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO)’s bottom-up, consensus-based Policy Development Process (PDP).
