Why ICANN('t) pay the bill
ICANN, a group that has had its fair share of problems, has
yet another: The Net coordination body wants more money --
and more power -- but one of its largest partners, the
Council of European National Top Level Domain Registries
(CENTR), isn't willing to play ball.

IANA Administrative Procedure for Root Zone Name Server
Delegation and Glue Data
In December of 2003 the Root Server System Advisory
Committee (RSSAC) made a recommendation to the ICANN board
regarding adding IPv6 name server addresses to the root
zone for Top Level Domains (TLDs) that request them. The
recommendation also suggested that the IANA adopt certain
procedures to deal with potential (although unlikely)
problems that may occur as a result of these changes.

Name, image and cyber-branding

Freenet und Sipgate schalten VoIP-Netze zusammen
Die Voice-over-IP-Anbieter Freenet und Sipgate haben ihre
Netze zusammengeschaltet. Internet-Telefonate zwischen
Kunden der beiden Firmen sind damit kostenfrei. Für die
kostenlosen Telefonate ist keine eigene Vorwahl
erforderlich; die Erkennung erfolgt anhand der gewählten
Rufnummer. Statt über das Telefonnetz mit Minutengebühren
wird das Gespräch dann kostenfrei übers Internet
weitergeleitet. Der Austausch der Internet-Rufnummern
zwischen den Unternehmen erfolgt zunächst noch nicht über
die Registry ENUM, sondern über einen direkten Austausch
der Rufnummerndaten. Allerdings ist der Umstieg auf die
ENUM-Registry offenbar mittelfristig geplant.

La domaine ".fr" est en pleine mutation

part, la suppression du monopole de l’AFNIC au lendemain de
l’adoption de la loi pour la confiance dans l’économie
numérique (LEN).
