In 2001, Afilias launched .INFO, the first new gTLD ever approved by ICANN. To support its new registry platform, Afilias committed to using open source technology with PostgreSQL. A great deal of consideration was taken to make this strategic choice, on costs, risks, quality and ongoing support for the technology. Over the past 10 years, Afilias has realized numerous benefits and key learnings from its winning strategy and from its involvement in the open source communities. Over the next 5 years, as the domain industry shifts considerably, so will its technologies, applications and business models. What role will open source play in these future trends?
