The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers’ (ICANN) accounts have been approved by an independent auditor.
Moss Adams LLP has given the domain name regulator an unqualified “clean” opinion for the 12th successive year.
This means the auditor failed to identify any matter that would require it to alter the extent of the opinion given on ICANN’s recent financial statements.
ICANN has posted its 2010-11 Audited Financials on its website, and the document is now available for review by the community.
In accordance with Article XVI of ICANN’s by-laws, the audited financial statements had to be published by the end of October.
From next year, ICANN will charge $185,000 per generic top level domain name application, with organizations paying a further $20,000 per year once they have been awarded a customized domain name.
