I see no need for a deposit to include external hosts, however their omission may complicate the process of restoring a registry. Furthermore, I'd expect escrow agents check that all name-server associations have corresponding host objects, where host objects are used.

I believe that both internal and external hosts need to be included in the deposit, since the goal of the deposit is to capture the information contained in the registry database.  Both internal and external hosts are first-class objects in the registry database, so they must be included in the deposit.  The name server links between the domain names and the hosts should result in an objects at both ends of the links, meaning external hosts cannot be excluded from the deposit to make the links complete.

Hi All,

We are puzzled with the host data in deposit, we used to think that the host data should be the name servers associated with domain in the deposit, in this case some other gTLD's NSes may be  included in deposits such as,etc.
But now we tend to believe that the hosts under the same registry should be the answer, that is only the hosts under new gTLD 'xn--fiq64b' should be included in xn--fiq64b's deposit file.

Are we right? Or both of the hosts under the registry and the NSes which may not under the registry should be included?
