About ICANN
ICANN’s mission is to coordinate and ensure a stable, secure and unified global Internet identifier system. To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an identifier into your computer – a name or a number. That identifier has to be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998. It is a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation that supports and coordinates participants from all over the world dedicated to keeping the Internet secure, stable and interoperable. ICANN promotes competition and develops policy on some of the Internet’s unique identifiers. ICANN doesn’t control content on the Internet. It cannot stop spam and it doesn’t deal with access to the Internet. But through its coordination role of the top level of the Internet’s identifier systems, it does have an important impact on the expansion and evolution of the Internet.
