Dear ICANNWiki User, Thank you for using our site as your go-to resource for information on ICANN and Internet governance. We are a small non-profit that has been in operation since 2005, providing the ICANN community with an informative resource and engaging presence at ICANN Meetings. 2016 was a big year for us and we want to make 2017 even better! We are starting off the new year with a fundraising drive to enable us to build on our success in 2016 and continue providing and improving ICANNWiki for everyone. If you find ICANNWiki useful and have the ability to give, we will be grateful for any contribution large or small.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

What is ICANN?

Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is a global multi-stakeholder organization that was created an 1998 and empowered through actions by the U.S. government and its Department of Commerce. Its primary responsibility is to manage the Internet's core infrastructure, which consists of IP addresses, domain names, and root servers. It coordinates the Internet's DNS, IP addresses and autonomous system numbers, which involves a continued management of these evolving systems and the protocols that underly them.

On 1 October 2016, the oversight of ICANN transitioned from the U.S. government to the private sector, which will govern the Internet's unique identifiers through the multistakeholder model.
