Re: IDN Status update for 2017

Just to confirm that nobody cares:

Understood. Okay. That's helpful. And then could you give an update on foreign language versions of .com and .net that you're introducing? Just how many are up and running today? What kind of traction are they seeing? And then, just what's the schedule for the remaining domains going forward?

D. James Bidzos - VeriSign, Inc.

Todd, do you want to...

Todd B. Strubbe - VeriSign, Inc.

Yeah. Well, we currently have three of the transliterations of com and net generally available. That's two of the Korean or Hangul transliterations, one for com and one for net, and then the Japanese or Katakana script of .com. At this point, we're not providing any additional details on other launches. As we mentioned last quarter, we do continue to work on our licensing process to operate the Chinese IDNs, and we will update as we develop our plans further.

Gray W. Powell - Wells Fargo Securities LLC

Got it. Okay. Thank you very much.

Got it. Thanks. That's helpful. And then a question on the new gTLDs, the .com, .net transliterations. Realized it's a small base and early, but just curious there. What are you seeing there in terms of renewal rates for those that have lapsed versus what you see for .com and .net?

Todd B. Strubbe - VeriSign, Inc.

We haven't really – the general availability for the earliest ones was not until second quarter of 2016, so we're not up to our first year.

D. James Bidzos - VeriSign, Inc.

Yeah, we haven't lapped yet.

Todd B. Strubbe - VeriSign, Inc.

Yeah, don't have (26:30)

Jason Velkavrh - Robert W. Baird & Co., Inc.

Got it. Okay. Do you have an expectation for that to be any different or do you expect that to be around the same?

Todd B. Strubbe - VeriSign, Inc.

I think it's too early to tell. They are such a different product.

D. James Bidzos - VeriSign, Inc.

Yeah, we don't guide to the renewal rates, but there is only a few more months and that information will be available.

Jason Velkavrh - Robert W. Baird & Co., Inc.

Got it. Okay. That's all I had. Thanks for the questions.
