The U.S. Department of Commerce will hold a Wednesday hearing on the government's September deadline to give up control over Internet domain names, a schedule that some high-tech industry advocates say should be delayed.

The U.S. government controls the naming system for ".com" and all web addresses through the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a California-based not-for-profit company that decides what names can and cannot be registered.

The transition is currently slated to take place by Sept. 30, but the U.S. Department of Commerce has the option to extend its control.
