Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ( ICANN) to be handed over to "Global Internet Community" by 2015 from US!

When it comes to internet, the domain names play a vital role.

It makes life much easier than if it wouldn't be.  But how many of us know who's behind the domain name systems?

Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ( ICANN), which founded by 1998, to manage the domain naming system.  Its a Not-For-Profit organisation, which comes under US Government.

On the basis of  reports, which exposed the National Security Agency's surveillance measures, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), an agency of the Commerce Department, US has announced that, its going to hand over ICANN to "Global Internet Community" by 2015.

But, many voices are against the move, as it could lead to a greater online censorship.
