All membership levels include access to ICA email alerts, member webinars, and other important updates from ICA counsel and membership, the ability to vote in board elections, the opportunity to highlight your support of domain owner rights with ICA Member website badges,  and recognition in the ICA Member Directory. Membership also demonstrates your commitment to the ICA Code of Conduct.  Most of your membership contribution may be tax deductible, as described below.

Additional recognition, access, and benefits are available at higher membership levels.  Corporate membership levels begin at the Bronze Membership level.

The ICA's success and future depend on your support. For any membership questions feel free to contact our Executive Director, Kamila Sekiewicz, at

Submitting Your Membership Contribution

Monthly or annual PayPal subscriptions are the easiest way to join for most individual members. Corporate members can pay via PayPal, credit card, wire transfer, or checks. We'll provide all the details and options at the time of joining.

PayPal Account: or through the Subscription buttons.

Contributions And Donations

The ICA is a volunteer-run organization that depends on contributions from the domain industry to fulfill its mission. Contributions of any amount are welcome.

One-Time Donations


Other Ways to Help

We may also be able to accept donations of domain names. Domain name donations may have tax advantages that can be explored with your accountant. Please contact us if you are interested in donating a domain.

Volunteering your time can be just as valuable as contributing money. The ICA needs help with membership outreach, fundraising, social media distribution and administrative efforts. Consider putting your talents to good use by supporting the ICA.

Support those who are making the domain industry better for all of us by supporting those who support the ICA. Look for the ICA Member badge and consider directing your business to those businesses who support the ICA. For those businesses who already support the ICA, let them know that you appreciate their support. For those businesses you deal with who don't yet support the ICA, let them know that you prefer to work with businesses that are joining in the industry wide effort to protect our domain name assets.

How will my Contribution be Used?

As a volunteer-run organization, you can be assured that 100% of your contribution goes to pursuing the ICA's mission. Our lean-and-mean approach means that every dollar spent supporting the ICA is another dollar helping domain owners team to counter the IP community’s narrative against domain investors specifically, and domains generally, by setting forth accurate information about our industry and working for recognition and preservation of domain registrant rights. Any amounts collected in excess of our operating budget will be devoted exclusively to the projects and purposes as decided by members, such as commissioning white papers to support ICA positions, the creation of a domain defense fund, hiring of additional staff, etc.
