As one of the top domain brokerages, we believe in the power of what a domain can do for a company. We were founded with the purpose of helping our clients be seen online – and we help clients buy a domain, sell a domain and protect a domain. None of this would be possible without ICANN. 

Saw.com is very happy to announce we will be attending the ICANN 74 Policy Forum 2022! Co-Founder and CEO, Jeffrey Gabriel, will be attending the forum from June 13-16 to represent our domain brokerage team. We love attending events like these so we can meet other passionate leaders in the domain industry. We hope to see you there!

What is ICANN?

ICANN, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, is a global nonprofit organization that oversees the network of unique identifiers that allow computers on the Internet to find one another. Founded in 1998, ICANN stands to promote competition and develop policies for the Internet’s unique identifiers. Additionally, to keep the Internet secure and stable. Due to ICANN’s role in the Internet naming system, ICANN does have a large impact on the evolution of the Internet. 

Some of the identifiers ICANN oversees are root servers, IP addresses, and the domain name system. An example of ICANN’s work in our daily lives would be when you type a web address into Google. Since that web address is unique to that person or business, you are immediately directed to that site. This would not be possible without ICANN. Since ICANN is who coordinates the unique identifiers to ensure the Internet is organized and efficient.  

ICANN 74 Policy Forum 2022

ICANN holds public meetings three times a year to “discuss progressing policy work, conducting outreach, exchanging best practices, negotiating business deals, and interacting with other members of the ICANN community, Board, and organization.” 

The forum is made up of various discussions, councils, workshops and networking events. From data protection to DNS abuse and laws and regulations in the European Union, all topics will be covered over the three day meeting. 

Each public meeting is in a different region of the world. This upcoming ICANN conference will be held in The Hague, Netherlands from June 13-16 at the World Forum. The location represents Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region. This meeting will include both in person and virtual participation.

Registration closes on June 8th, sign up now.
