What Is ICANN?
To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an address into
your computer - a name or a number. That address has to be unique so
computers know where to find each other. ICANN coordinates these unique
identifiers across the world. Without that coordination we wouldn't have one
ICANN was formed in 1998. It is a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation
with participants from all over the world dedicated to keeping the Internet
secure, stable and interoperable. It promotes competition and develops
policy on the Internets unique identifiers.
ICANN doesnt control content on the Internet. It cannot stop spam and it
doesnt deal with access to the Internet. But through its coordination role
of the Internets naming system, it does have an important impact on the
expansion and evolution of the Internet.
