Draft Policy ARIN-2020-7: 4.4 gTLD Micro-allocation Clarification

Problem Statement:

The term “new gTLD” is confusing and refers to all gTLD’s that have been 
created since June of 2012.

Policy Statement:

ICANN-sanctioned gTLD operators may justify up to the equivalent of an 
IPv4 /23 block for each authorized gTLD, allocated from the free pool or 
received via transfer, but not from the above reservation.

Timetable for implementation: Immediate


This proposal stems from a suggestion in the January, 2019 Policy 
Experience Report.
