Abstract

The number of generic top-level domains in the Internet's Domain Name System has been increasing slowly since 2000. In July 2011 the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approved a long-awaited plan to significantly increase the number of generic top-level domain names. With a specific focus on users of the Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP), this presentation will describe the practical challenges faced by participants in the domain name provisioning ecosystem in the face of evolving domain name management requirements.
