InterStream manages the ISTP namespace through a third party, Cambix, to manage, assign title, and resolve ISTP names on the media grid. This function is performed under a license from InterStream under a wholesale agreement. Existing accredited ICANN DNS retail registrars may participate in ISTP namespace sales by contacting Cambix. The sales of the ISTP names will use a Sunrise / Sunset period to insure that TLD name holders will be given adequate notice and have the ability to register their corresponding ISTP names. Existing domain names may be certified to act as origin systems during this period to either reserve (backorder) or purchase the corresponding ISTP name. Additionally, .COM top level domain (TLD) holders may purchase the corresponding ISTP root prefix during the sunrise period. Other TLD holders may purchase the root prefix during sunset period. Finally, other may purchase the ISTP name on a first come first served basis after the sunset period has expired.

InterStream is creating a title for ownership of ISTP names. The title ownership assigns ownership of the ISTP name initially to the registry, Cambix. Cambix will transfer title at purchase to existing domain name owners and others per the terms of service (ITOSA), and sunrise/sunset rules set by the association. Title is held as long as annual registration fees are paid for that name. If the fees are not paid within a 60 day grace period, Cambix, the ISTP namespace wholesale registry, will not resolve the name to media grid locations. In other words, the ISTP name will become useless on the grid. The registry will retract the name from the grid, per the terms of service agreement. Cambix expect to use existing ICANN accredited domain name registrars to retail names and insure they are paid in full annually. Retail registrars are responsible for foreclosing on ISTP names which have not fulfilled their annual filing requirements.

Note that Top Level Domains (TLDs) are not required with ISTP. However, ISTP names such as portal-name.com can be registered via InterStream.

InterStream is creating a title for ownership of ISTP names. The title ownership assigns ownership of the ISTP name initially to the registerar, Cambix. Cambix transfer title at purchase to existing domain name owners and other per the ITOSA, and sunrise/sunset rules set by the association. Title is held as long as annual registration fees are paid for that namespace. If the fees are not paid within a 60 day grace period, Cambix, the ISTP namespace registrar, may not resolve the name to media grid locations. In other words, the name becomes useless. The registrar may then establish civil efforts to foreclose on the ISTP name owner per the ITOSA.

Governance of ISTP Portals and their Namespace

ISPT uses a slightly different mechanism than traditional URLs such as those seen in HTTP. To refer to a portal, ISTP looks like the following in the address bar of a browser:

istp://portal-name

Note that Top Level Domains (TLDs) are not required with ISTP. However, ISTP names such as portal-name.com can be registered via InterStream. Since there is a name space overlap between DNS and ISTP, governance of the ISTP namespace become very important for both owners of overlapping ISTP and DNS names.


Governance Philosophy

InterStream manages the ISTP namespace in parallel with the existing Domain Name System (DNS). Since names can reference existing URLs, ISTP namespace management must conform to International Standards. Currently, ICANN sets the governance mechanism for the top level domain system. InterStream's governance formalizes namespace management to include the concept of a title ISTP names.


Namespace Management

InterStream manages the ISTP namespace through a third party, Cambix, to manage, assign title, and operate ISTP names.


Namespace Title and Ownership

InterStream is creating a title for ownership of ISTP names. The title ownership assigns ownership of the ISTP name to initial registerer. Title is held as long as annual registration fees are paid for that namespace. If the fees are not paid up, Cambix, the ISTP namespace registrar, may not resolve the name to media grid locations. In other words, the name becomes useless. The registrar may establish civil efforts to foreclose on the ISTP name owner.
