I want to share three domain industry infographics that were published by ICANN that I thought were interesting. If you are unsure of the role ICANN plays in the oversight, allocation, distribution, and management of domain names, these infographics can give you a bit more perspective. According to the blog post accompanying the release of the infographics, “ICANN has published infographics to illustrate various aspects of the system that plays such a crucial role in the global Internet.”
I am not involved with ICANN governance, and I don’t cover it all that much about ICANN on my blog as a result (perhaps to a fault). For those of us who don’t follow ICANN all that much, these infographics are helpful tools to learn more about what ICANN does as well as the roles of other types of companies involved in the business side of domain names.
There are three infographics that were published, and you can read them more clearly by clicking on the button on the bottom right to enlarge them to the size of the screen. You can also click on the links below each infographic to be taken to the page where more information about each is provided.
