the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), which manages the .CA internet top-level domain (TLD), and SIDN, its counterpart in the Netherlands which manages the .NL TLD, announced a partnership to develop, promote, and support the CIRA Registry Platform.

Under the agreement, the code base and intellectual property of the CIRA platform will be transferred to a jointly-owned and managed Canadian-based corporation, and SIDN will be migrating .NL, the fourth largest country code TLD (ccTLD) in the world, to the new platform.

“When migration is complete, .NL will be running on a new cloud-based version of the current CIRA Registry Platform with the functionality and features SIDN requires to manage the registry effectively,” the press release noted. It also said that the two organizations will collaborate on the development of new features, integration of new technologies, and on expanding the market opportunity for the platform.
