- Contract to Operate .us Country Code Top Level Domain Awarded to Neustar
The U.S. Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced today that it has awarded a new contract to operate the .us registry to Neustar Inc. The contract with Neustar, which is the incumbent operator of the .us registry, is for three years with the option to renew the contract twice for one year. Neustar will operate the .us registry, the U.S. country-code top-level domain name (usTLD), at no cost to the federal government.
The U.S. government remains committed to maintaining a stable, secure Internet that is open for economic growth and innovation and views the continued operation and improvement of the usTLD as one of the many ways it supports that mission. The usTLD has historically served as a home for American business, individuals, and localities and is managed on behalf of the U.S. government through a contract overseen by NTIA.
Inland Telephone is owned and operated by Western Elite Incorporated Services of Roslyn, Washington and provides telecommunications services to several remote Idaho communities.
