ICANN Appoints CNNIC As The Third New gTLD Data Escrow Agent

China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) has been approved by ICANN to provide data escrow services to new gTLD Registry Operators.

All new gTLD Registry Operators are required to regularly deposit a backup copy of their TLD registration data through one of the approved data escrow service providers. The data held in escrow may be released to ICANN under certain circumstances in order to preserve the stability of the TLD in case of an emergency.

ICANN encourages applicants to engage with one of the approved  data escrow providers in preparation for Specification 2, Part B.1, of the Registry Agreement.

The other 2 ICANN-approved New gTLD data escrow agents are Iron Mountain Intellectual Property Management, Inc. and NCC Group.
