ICANN Formalizes Relationships with ccTLD Manager for Niue


Jan 22, 2008 -

ICANN announced today that it has signed an exchange of letters with the country code top level domain (ccTLD) manager for .nu--Niue, Internet Users Society Niue (IUS-N).

The Accountability Framework program provides two mechanisms by which ccTLD managers can formalise their relationship with ICANN. The first is an Accountability Framework document that sets out the obligations of a ccTLD manager and ICANN. It also covers dispute resolution and termination and is designed for ccTLD managers requiring a formal document with ICANN.

The second mechanism is an exchange of letters between ICANN and the ccTLD manager designed for those for whom a simple statement of commitment is more appropriate.

Signed accountability framework and exchange of letters documents can be found at https://www.icann.org/cctlds/agreements.html.
