CoCCA is an acronym for Council of Country Code Administrators. The registry software CoCCA authors and maintains is the most widely deployed country code top level domain ("ccTLD") registry solution in the industry.
Of the 308 delegated ccTLDs, the CoCCA software is used to manage 55 ccTLDs. The CoCCA software is also used to manage six non-country ICANN TLDs. In total 61 TLDs.
The CoCCA SRS complies with ICANN and IETF standards. The SRS software may be installed locally on the TLD Manager infrastructure or CoCCA can host a primary or backup instance for continuity and disaster recovery.
TLD Managers who wish to use the CoCCA software purchase support. CoCCA support provides TLD managers with custom features, priority bug fixes, training, data escrow, failover sites, access to abuse mitigation tools and AUP complaint resolution services.
The support fee is flat, and not based on transactions or domains under managament.
The CX, GS, GY, KI, HT, HN, MS, TL, SB, and NF ccTLDs have adopted the CoCCA Complaint Resolution Service (CRS). The CoCCA CRS provides a transparent, efficient and cost effective way for the public, law enforcement, regulatory bodies, and intellectual property owners to have their concerns regarding use of a TLD managers services addressed.
The CoCCA CRS addresses not only rights to a particular domain but also the registrant's use of that domain. Policies apply recursively, and are applicable not only to the domains in the registry but apply equally to any subordinate domain created by the registrant.
The registrants' licence to use a domain requires them to comply with the applicable AUP, a failure to do so or remedy an AUP breach if requested, may result in a suspension of a domain and its removal from the zone.
Any party who believes a domain name registrant has violated a participating TLD manager’s AUP must provide a formal complaint in order for CoCCA to investigate and evaluate the claim or complaint.
If you have an urgent complaint regarding the distribution of child abuse images in a TLD managed by an entity using the CoCCA software please lodge a complaint with both law enforecment and the Internet Watch Foundation. The IWF and/or Law enforcment who will confrim the issue and notify CoCCA for possible action.
In cases where CoCCA has a technical or legal capacity, we will act swiftly on an IWF notice without the need for a formal complaint using the CRS above.
