Registries, registrars and hosting providers joined forces in the topDNS initiative at the beginning of 2022. Since then, the stable, reliable and secure operation of the DNS (Domain Name System) has been their common goal. It has been about half a year, so the eco Association as initiator and the initiative members are taking a moment to review what has happened in the first few months.
In recent times, the topDNS initiative has been a key factor which has enabled eco to apply a special weight to meeting the goal of protecting the “telephone book of the Internet”. The EU Commission has also just published a Study on Domain Name System (DNS) Abuse, which eco regards as having very good insights - but also some flaws.
Important decisions on core functions of the Internet will be taken in Hamburg in 2023: eco - Association of the Internet Industry and DENIC eG, together with the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg as host, will organise the 78th meeting of ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) from 21 to 26 October 2023.
On 9 and 10 May 2022, registries, registrars, resellers, service providers and investors from the domain industry will come together in Stockholm for the Nordic Domain Days 2022. The eco initiative topDNS is a partner of the conference and is involved in the programme in several respects.
