S. ” The new corporation, which would manage domain names, the IP address allocation system, and the root server network, would be run by a board of directors broadly reflecting the Internet private sector. S. government would recognize it by entering into agreements with it that would give it effective policy authority over the root zone. S. S. Department of Commerce documents creating the new corporation.

Government out of the funding loop. Rather, NSI would charge a $50 annual fee to each domain name registrant. The NSI fee crystallized growing unhappiness with the structure of the domain name system. Registrants wondered why, in seeking to register names in the generic top level domains, they were stuck with the service provided, and the fees charged, by the NSI monopoly. NSI also generated animosity with its domain name dispute policies, under which it would suspend a domain name upon receiving a complaint from a trademark owner, without regard to whether the trademark owner had a superior legal claim to the name.

Historically, the Internet root zone was overseen by Postel and others at USC’s Information Sciences Institute; beginning in the late 1980s, their activities coordinating the root zone and IP address allocation came to be referred to as the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). There is no technical or legal requirement that a person use the root servers established by IANA to resolve DNS queries. Users can point their computers at entirely different DNS servers that in turn point to different root servers, referencing a different set of top-level domains.
