Discussion

As a result of the NREN NIS award by National Science Foundation, non-DDN registration services will soon be transferred from the DDN NIC to the new Internet Registration Service, which is a part of an entity referred to as the InterNIC. References in this document to the InterNIC apply to the Registration Services portion only.

Internet registration services are gradually transitioning to the InterNIC. We expect that the full transition will be accomplished by April 1, 1993. During this transitional period, EMail, Fax, and U.S. mail received at either site will be processed. DDN users will continue to receive full registration support from the DDN NIC, and the transition should be transparent to them. DDN users should continue to send registration requests to hostmast@nic.ddn.mil (IP, .mil domain, inaddr for 26.x.x.x) or registrar@nic.ddn.mil (user registrations or TAC card requests) using the DISA approved registration forms.

From now through March 31, 1993, non-DDN Internet registration requests will be handled as follows:

The current DDN NIC registration templates may be filled out and submitted to either hostmaster@internic.net or hostmaster@nic.ddn.mil through March 31. The new InterNIC templates will be accepted effective April 1, 1993, but not until that time.

Effective April 1, 1993, non-DDN Internet requests will be handled as described below.

New registration requests should be sent to autoreg@internic.net using the new template. Old templates sent to autoreg@internic.net will be returned with the parsing error messages and the new form attached. Old templates mailed to hostmaster@interic.net will be accepted through June 30, 1993.

After that date, templates in the old format will be returned to the sender with the new template attached.

In an effort to keep those who are likely to submit a high volume of registration requests informed during the transition period, information regarding Internet registration issues will be distributed via the mail list rs-info@internic.net. Send subscription requests to:

rs-info-request@internic.net.
