The domain name registration company ICANN is set to change its name in response to complaints about the registration of domains with the same name.
Domain name registrations are used by Internet service providers to register the domain names of websites.
When a website’s domain name is registered, it is linked to the IP address of the domain’s hosting company and is used by people who visit that website.
The registrar has to obtain an IP address from each hosting company before they can send a request to the domain name provider to register a domain name.
ICANN says it will allow registrars to opt out of these requirements if they want to.
However, the registrar’s decision to change the name of its website will not affect any websites that are still registered.
ICAC said it will still have to comply with the changes to the names and IP addresses of all domain names.ICANN says the changes will take effect for the next five years.
