LOS ANGELES - The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced that it published the initial draft study on the Domain Name System (DNS) for the Middle East and Adjoining Countries (MEAC), and it receives now feedback on the initial draft study which was commissioned in June 2015. 
The study aims to investigate the current state of the Internet and the domain name industry in the MENAC region, define best practices that have made an impact on the domain names growth and describe the business potentials in the domain name market. 

Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property (AGIP) was selected by ICANN as a member of EURid Consortium to conduct the study and submit suggestions and recommendations on how to improve the ecosystem of the Internet infrastructure within the region, and what business models can be adopted in the domain names industry.

This initial report submitted by EURid Consortium is now published and includes the results of a survey of ccTLD registries in the region, supplemented by interviews with registries and registrars. Moreover, it measures the region's domain names from a variety of sources, including contacts with ccTLD managers and an automated analysis of 150 million domains from open gTLD zone files.
ICANN puts the initial draft study open for comments until October 30, 2015, and will discuss it during its 54th meeting in Dublin.
