Join the .US town hall meeting and help shape the future of the .US extension

Neustar, the .US registry, is hosting a live town hall forum on Wednesday to discuss the United States’ country code Top-Level Domain, .US.

Anyone can join the .US town hall meeting and help shape the future of the .US extension, or at least try to…

Neustar said that, “The annual town hall is part of Neustar’s commitment to a bottom-up, multi-stakeholder model of domain registry management. It’s also an important aspect of ensuring that .US continues to be a vibrant namespace reflecting America’s diversity, creativity, and innovative spirit. Attendees have the opportunity to collaborate, share expertise and ideas, and discuss topics of interest and public service goals. Becky Burr, Neustar’s Chief Privacy Officer and member of the Board of Directors of ICANN, will also be presenting on the topic of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as it applies to .US and the registry community.”

The truth is that .us is not doing so great. It never did. People in the US prefer .com and Neustar has not done any aggressive marketing in the past 15 years that is managing the .US extension.

The free virtual .US Town Hall Webcast will take place on Thursday, October 5, 2017, 3 p.m. EST. You can expect a rundown of the current state of the domain industry and .US, policy considerations for domain growth, and community outreach to establish top civic priorities for future direction.

Featured Speakers:

  • Shane Tews — Host, Chair .US Stakeholder Council
  • Crystal Peterson — Director, Registry Services Neustar
  • Becky Burr — Deputy General Counsel Neustar
  • Kimberly Miller — Council Secretariat, Senior Associate General Counsel Neustar
