Press Release: Commerce's NTIA Renews .us Domain Contract With Neustar

For Immediate Release: October 19, 2007
Todd Sedmak, 482-7002 or

WASHINGTON--The Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) today announced the renewal of a contract to Neustar to manage the .us domain space. NTIA just completed a three-month long competitive procurement process. The domain is the country code top-level domain for the United States (usTLD).

"Neustar's bid met our selection criteria and we are confident of its abilities to manage the .us domain space. NTIA takes seriously its responsibility to ensure the stability and security of the .us domain for the benefit of the nation's Internet community," said NTIA Assistant Secretary John Kneuer. "Therefore, we will continue supervising administration of the usTLD to achieve those goals, and will work closely with Neustar to support the domain's growth, particularly in the second-level space."

Neustar and the Department of Commerce entered into a three-year agreement with two, one-year options, on Friday, Oct. 19, 2007. The company also will continue efforts to improve the customer service and technical management as well as introduce new services.

NTIA is responsible for the development of domestic and international telecommunications policy for the Executive Branch.
