The Centralized Zone Data Service (CZDS) is ICANN’s solution for scaling zone data transfer as hundreds of new gTLDs are added to the Internet.
Every new gTLD Registry will be required to provide zone data files to approved requestors (e.g. law enforcement agents, IP attorneys, researchers) upon technical delegation of its gTLD. The CZDS will support this requirement by providing a single web platform where requestors and Registries can interact.
