contractors are being transferred in phases to private-sector management
through ICANN.  The text of the report, which follows earlier reports
submitted in June 1999 and June 2000, may be viewed at

Information about .biz and .info Top-Level Domains Available

The .biz (restricted to business use) and .info (unrestricted) top-level
domains are in their start-up phases.  Information about the schedule
for their implementation is available at web sites operated by their
registry operators <http://www.nic.biz> and <http://www.nic.info>.
