According to a press release we received, GoDaddy, announced today it was the first major registrar to sign ICANN’s new Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA).
The new agreement provides customers a better experience, allows registrars to offer the upcoming new gTLDs and sets the standard for the future of the Internet.
Signing the new agreement enables GoDaddy to offer the new top level domain names (new gTLD’s)
“This agreement is a great step forward for the Internet,” said GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving. “It represents an important milestone in establishing the new gTLD program — which will help make the Web a better, more intricately structured resource for everyone. What comes after the ‘dot’ will soon be as important as what comes before it. For someone looking for a new domain name, this represents one of the biggest steps forward since the beginning of the internet.”
GoDaddy signed the agreement during the ICANN meeting in Durban, South Africa.
