ARIN-prop-290: 4.4 gTLD Micro-allocation Clarification

Date: 3 June 2020

Proposal Originator: Alison Wood and the ARIN Advisory Council Policy Experience Report Working Group

Problem Statement:

The term “new gTLD” is confusing and refers to all gTLD’s that have been created since June of 2012.

Policy Statement:

ICANN-sanctioned gTLD operators may justify up to the equivalent of an IPv4 /23 block for each authorized gTLD, allocated from the free pool or received via transfer, but not from the above reservation.

Timetable for Implementation: Immediate


This proposal stems from a suggestion in the January, 2019 Policy Experience Report.
