Neustar supports comments submitted by the DNA on the New gTLD Auction Proceeds 
Discussion Paper.

Neustar agrees that it is important that the funds generated through the ICANN 
auction of last resort must be treated as an exceptional, one-time resource of 

Further, we agree that it is important that the auction proceeds be used in a 
manner that directly supports ICANN’s mission and mandate “coordinate, at the 
overall level, the global Internet's systems of unique identifiers, and in 
particular to ensure the stable and secure operation of the Internet's unique 
identifier systems.”

In this context we concur with the DNA recommendation that the working group 
considers the following applications: 
- Consumer awareness and education efforts on the introduction of new gTLDs and 
how domain names fit into the              Internet landscape; 
- Studies to better understand how users engage with the Domain Name System, to 
inform future ICANN policy work; 
 -Work related to the universal acceptance of new gTLDs, particularly IDN TLDs; 
- Work to support a healthy domain name ecosystem by funding industry¬ led best 
practices initiatives on issues such malicious conduct and security.
