Recommendation DescriptionCurrent Phase
Recommendation 1The SSAC welcomes this opportunity to provide input on the issues related to root scaling. The SSAC understands the working group’s request on 14 September 2017 to be:

1. whether the limitations on delegations per annum (1000 / year) could be revisited given the results of the Continuous Data-driven Analysis of Root Stability (CDAR) study and if so, what guidance can the SSAC provide to maintain the security and stability of the root;

2. suggestions on ways that might mitigate potential issues in the event the working group recommends to increase the maximum annual delegation rate; and

3. inputs on the total number of TLDs that could be delegated without negative impact to root server performance.
