I will examine the command-and-control regulation ICANN has imposed through its negotiation of contracts with the new registries it has chosen. The new contracts give ICANN closely detailed control over the new registries and their business models. Here, too, I will draw parallels—and note contrasts—with the FCC’s experience.

The report contained no discussion recognizing that these were, in fact, decisions. Most important were choices about how the new registries would be chosen. When ICANN inserts a new TLD into the root, the new zone file entry reflects a series of choices. info”. It must also identify the particular organization that will administer the master registry database for that TLD, and enter the IP addresses of name servers controlled by that organization into the root zone.
