Board approves the revocation of the delegation .UM and directs that it be returned to unassigned status.


Whereas, the .UM top-level domain was originally delegated in December 1997 <>.

Whereas, the currently assigned operator is the University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute.

Whereas, the .UM domain is not in active use, and the current operator no longer wishes to operate it.

Whereas, ICANN has reviewed the request, and has determined that the returning the domain to unassigned status is the appropriate action to reflect its status.

Recognizing, this would not prohibit future delegation of the domain to another party that meets the regular ccTLD delegation criteria.

RESOLVED (07.04), that the delegation of .UM be removed from the DNS root, and that it be returned to unassigned status.
