The Internet is a vast network of interconnected computers that can be accessed at nearly any time, and are often the target of censors, according to a report.
That is partly because of how they are set up and controlled, and partly because they are made up of a network of private companies.
These companies are known as ISPs and control the networks that distribute content to consumers and businesses.
A report published Wednesday by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a nonprofit organization that works to protect the internet, details some of the ways these companies work.
ICANN’s report highlights the fact that some of these companies are owned by large corporations and, therefore, have a vested interest in controlling the flow of information on the internet.
ICNA, for example, owns the Domain Name System (DNS) — a public database that records who owns what on the web and what domains are used for which purposes.
ICNAP, which was spun off from ICANN in 2013, also has a vested stake in the network of computers and networks that serve as a platform for the DNS.
But ICANN says that other companies also have a stake in shaping the web — and some of them are even owned by the internet companies themselves.

“ICANN’s mission is to provide the information needed to secure the internet for everyone and promote the free and open Internet, and we are working hard to protect this critical information on behalf of everyone,” ICANN CEO Robert Graham wrote in a statement.
ICANA, which is owned by Cisco Systems, and the internet giant Google, which has a significant presence in the US, are also owned by these companies.
ICAN, an open source project that aims to build a decentralized and open internet, is owned and operated by the same companies.
The report goes into greater detail on the companies’ business models, as well as the methods they use to control the flow.
For instance, ICANA sells a set of services to third parties, such as email service providers and internet search engines, to provide access to its domain names.
But this includes not only ICANN and ICANN-owned DNS, but also the IP addresses of the computers that serve them.
ICANCAN has set up a website that gives users a way to learn more about the companies and their products.
And ICANN is currently working to add support for new types of data, such a video, audio, and photo files.
ICann is also working to help the internet giants sell its services to businesses and to governments.
The companies are also working on making the DNS more accessible to governments, in the hopes of making it easier for them to track the activities of the internet user.
“The goal is to bring the internet under the control of those that control it, so that no one is able to gain access to the information they need to protect their online identities and privacy,” ICANA said in a press release.
But while the companies may be able to do this, they will not be able yet to fully control the network.
“With the exception of DNS, there is nothing that ICANN can do to change how the network operates,” ICNA President Mike Copps said in the release.
The company said that it is working to remove DNS servers that it does not own from the network and to make it easier to switch off DNS services in the future.
But that process will take time, as ICANN works to build the infrastructure necessary to do so.
ICancs CEO also noted that the company is working with the US Department of Homeland Security and other government entities to ensure that the DNS is “operationally available to protect users and private companies.”
The US government’s role is “one of the first things that we look at when we’re looking at ways to protect our internet,” Copps added.
