us.com is registered through DSI escrow 
(http://www.ironmountain.com/ipm/) with contacts listed as CentralNic 
Ltd, London

"The idea for an independent global domain name registry stems from a 
series of conversations between one of CentralNic's original founders 
and the late Jon Postel, one of the founding fathers of the modern 
Internet. Postel suggested the use of .UK.COM to compete with .CO.UK, at 
a time when the proposed price of the latter was about $300. Using 
UK.COM as its first domain name, NomiNation was founded in 1995, and 
later became CentralNic."
