International domain registration and IP protection
 
.um Domain Registration - .um is the Internet country code top-level domain for the United States Minor Outlying Islands. In January 2007, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers reportedly dropped the .um domain from the master list of domain names in response to the domain's being unused and the desire of the University of Southern California Informaton Sciences Institute to divest itself of responsibility for the domain.. In November 2007 at the registry website of www.nic.um a message stated "Registration is CLOSED at this time. Since the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute divested itself of this registry, in late 2006, EP.NET hosted USMIR and continued to administer it. Some .um websites, like 'hotel.um' and 'co.um' sprung up after the TLD opened, however as of April 20, 2008, the .um domain has been removed from the root zone, thus these domains are inaccessible now.

.um Domain General Information

.um domain registration
.um is the Internet country code top-level domain for the United States Minor Outlying Islands. It was administered by the United States Minor Outlying Islands Registry. Until late 2006 USMIR was housed at the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute, which was the original administrator of .us prior to NeuStar absorbing that role.

In January 2007, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers reportedly dropped the .um domain from the master list of domain names in response to the domain's being unused and the desire of the University of Southern California Informaton Sciences Institute to divest itself of responsibility for the domain.. In November 2007 at the registry website of www.nic.um a message stated "Registration is CLOSED at this time. We are only accepting Registrar Accounts." Links to a brief description of each of the individual American islands were also given. In December 2007, registration was opened on an experimental basis with an "Annual Account Maintenance" fee of $1,200 and a $30 annual domain registration.

Since the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute divested itself of this registry, in late 2006, EP.NET hosted USMIR and continued to administer it. According to the www.nic.um site at that time, the TLD was no longer affilated with the University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute and had spun off the venture into an independent company, USMIR, which has the same contact information as that of the limited liability company EP.net. Accessing the website without the "www" subdomain returned a copy of the main site for EP.net.

Some .um websites, like 'hotel.um' and 'co.um' sprung up after the TLD opened, however as of April 20, 2008, the .um domain has been removed from the root zone, thus these domains are inaccessible now. It appears ICANN took the action of removing .u from the root since the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute requested this. Whether USMIR will refund domain owners because of this is not known. According to the revocation report on the IANA website, the U.S. DOC has approved the removal and has also instructed ICANN not to reassign the domain without prior approval from the U.S. DOC. Hence it appears USMIR was not authorised to manage the domain after USC/ISI disposed of it, and to reinstate this domain USMIR would have to liaise with the U.S. DOC for proper approval.

Background Information :

The United States Minor Outlying Islands, a statistical designation defined by the International Organization for Standardization's ISO 3166-1 code, consists of nine United States insular areas.

Palmyra Atoll is the only incorporated territory. As of 2008, none of the islands has any permanent residents. The only human population consists of temporarily stationed scientific and military personnel. The 2000 census counted 315 people on Johnson Atoll and 1 person on Wake Island. There has been no indigenous population, except at the 1940 census. The Baker, Howland and Jarvis Colonization Scheme attempted to settle Americans on those three islands beginning in 1935, but all three islands were evacuated in 1942 as a result of World War II.
