To all administrative and technical contacts:
As you may already know, since 1993 the Information Sciences Institute of the University of Southern California has administered the .US domain under a subcontract with Network Solutions, Inc. through its cooperative agreement with the U.S. Government. USC has chosen not to renew its subcontract, and therefore VeriSign Global Registry Services, a division of Network Solutions, Inc., will assume direct administration of the .US domain as of Tuesday, November 28, 2000.
Please note that no changes will occur to syntax, and the standards established by RFC 1480 located at [isi.edu...] will continue to apply. VeriSign Global Registry Services will forward its revised standard interim service agreement to you via email shortly for your review. We will also post the agreement on our web site at [nic.us....]
Should you have any questions, you may email them to
