ccTLD Workshop: Bangkok, Thailand
(Country Code Top Level Domain)
Date and Location
October 7-11, 2004 at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) Internet Education and Research Laboratory (intERLab), Bangkok, Thailand.
- To provide technical training to ccTLD operators that are managing the
servers and services for their national registries so they can maintain
stable, secure, and reliable service for their respective Internet
- To assist ccTLD operators in coordinating registry policy needs and
their technical resources, so they can make their own informed choices
about how to implement the policies, operational goals, and management
procedures in cooperation with their local Internet community.
- To help clarify current policies and procedures for working with IANA
and ICANN on ccTLD management issues, and the requirements and procedures
for getting IANA to make changes to the IANA ccTLD database.
- To provide a hands-on clinic in a lab environment for ccTLD managers to
learn about existing tools and software for registry operations. This
includes demonstrations with the toolset developers so participants can
determine how to best format their data to register domains for their
ccTLD, set up nameservice, exchange secondaries, create whois data, etc.
Users will get expert advice on how to automate and scale up their current
operations, and pointers on how to structure their existing data for use
with a selection of available open source toolsets.
- To build working relationships among individual and institutional
contacts that manage national registry services so they can learn from
both the workshop staff and each other, and about the range of resources
for additional help. A key outcome from the workshop will be the building
of relationships with peers/colleagues in the industry.
