Help the ccNSO DNS Abuse Standing Committee to better serve ccTLDs with regards to DNS Abuse

20 September 2022

The ccNSO DNS Abuse Standing Committee (DASC) seeks your input. The DASC wishes to better understand the ccTLD landscape when it comes to DNS Abuse, and to determine how to best serve ccTLDs. The DASC now launches a survey among members of the ccNSO and the broader ccTLD community.

You are kindly invited to participate in the survey, and to share this invite with colleagues within your organisation, as well as peers from the ccTLD community. Your input is valuable, and guides future work by the DASC. Kindly note that responses are limited to one (1) per ccTLD.

The deadline for submitting your response is Friday, 15 October 2022 (23:59 UTC).

The survey contains 34 questions in total, divided over 5 phases in the domain name registration process. The survey should take no more than 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Results will be published on the ccNSO website, however there will be an opportunity to opt-out to the publication of your ccTLD identifier.

We thank you for taking the time to respond to our survey.

On behalf of the DASC,

About the DASC

DASC was created as a dedicated forum for ccTLD Managers to discuss the important topic of DNS Abuse and to share information, insights, and practices. In keeping with the nature of the ccNSO, the purpose of the Committee is not to formulate any policy or standards, recognising that policy development in this area is out of scope of the ccNSO policy remit. The overarching purpose is to raise understanding and awareness of the issues pertaining to DNS Abuse, promote open and constructive dialogue, and ultimately to assist ccTLD Managers in their efforts to mitigate the impact of DNS Abuse. Relevant documents are available on its website and workspace.
