Breaking News: ICANN At-Large launches new website

The At-Large Community in the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has launched a new interactive website, ITRealms reports.

Director, ICANN Policy team in support of the At-Large Community, Heidi Ullrich, confirmed this, saying they were very pleased to announce the launch of the brand new website of the ICANN At-Large Community.

She also said that over the past year, the At-Large Community and ICANN Staff have provided dedicated efforts to create a more engaging website, with the goal to make the site an effective engagement tool and a one-stop shop for finding At-Large related issues.

These, she said, include ALAC policy advice, news, meetings and events, activities of the ALAC, Regional At-Large Organisations (RALOs) and At-Large Structures (ALSes), and ways to get involved in the At-Large community.

Further, she said, that this community-driven effort has resulted in a big step forward for At-Large with this official release of the new website.

On the post launch, Ullrich noted they expect the website to continue to evolve with new content that could be easily created and updated. Stressing other features that are anticipated to evolve include ALS Applications – New submission process for organizations that apply to become ALSes; Translations – Translations for additional static labels and content, public comment information from, and curated content submitted by the At-Large Community.

In addition, she said that accessibility for her team means continued progress towards Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Level AA certification, relabeling of images with alternative text, and KIFs , as well as content templates to see to  additional formats for content authoring via the generic content template.
