TLD strings currently in use

Hi folks,

I hope you consider this operational and on Topic:)

We have been receiving some reports of rejection of TLD strings at the ISP level. Some of this may be due to length limitations set in peoples software, there may also be other causes.

We want to make sure that there is a place where people can go and pick up a current list of the strings that are in the root zone. (Without having to parse the zone file itself). To this end the IANA is maintaining a list that can be downloaded from the following information page

If you have questions please feel free to use the e-mail listed on the above URL.
