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 global Internet.

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 Internet's unique identifiers.

ICANN doesn't control content on the Internet. It cannot stop spam 
and it doesn't deal with access to the Internet. But through its 
coordination role of the Internet's naming system, it does have an 
important impact on the expansion and evolution of the Internet.
