> Two Registrars Lose ICANN Accreditation
> 9 February 2010
> ICANN terminated its accreditation agreement with two registrars ISPREG LTD
> and SBNames Ltd for failure to comply with the requirements of the Registrar
> Accreditation Agreement (RAA), the contract between ICANN and registrars
> that governs the registration of domain names under generic top-level
> domains such as dot-com and dot-org.
> Letters have been sent to each registrar outlining the decision and reason
> behind the decision.

> To protect registrants, ICANN has initiated a process to identify a
> qualified and accredited registrar to take over management of the domain
> names formerly managed by ISPREG LTD and SBNames Ltd through a bulk
> transfer. Guidance is provided below for registrants who may be affected by
> this action.
> Frequently Asked Questions
> *Q. If I have domain names with a registrar that lost its accreditation,
> will I lose my domain names?*
> A. No. Your registrar’s gTLD names will be transferred to another registrar,
> as described below. Two-letter country-code (ccTLD) names, such as dot-in
> and dot-us, are not affected by this process.
> *Q. Will I be charged for this process?*
> A. No, the transfer process itself is provided free of any charge to
> registrants. You should note, however, that it will not change the current
> expiration date of your domain name registration. After the bulk transfer
> process is completed, you will be contacted by the registrar that receives
> the terminated registrar’s domain names about your options.
> *Q. How long will it take ICANN to identify someone to receive the domain
> names?*
> A. We expect to identify a qualified registrar to receive domain names
> within 30 days; however, the process of identifying a qualified registrar
> and completing the transfer of registration information may, on occasion,
> take longer than expected. ICANN will post a notice on its website when a
> qualified registrar has been identified.
> *Q. What do I need to do now?*
> A. You do not need to do anything right now. You will be contacted by the
> company that receives the domain names registered through your registrar in
> due course.
> *Q. What if I want to register my domain with a company other than the one
> that is chosen for the bulk transfer?*
> A. You will be able to transfer your domain to a different registrar after
> the bulk transfer, assuming that no other condition exists to support a
> denial of the transfer.
> Please note that, the gaining registrar is allowed to deny transfers for the
> first 60 days following the bulk transfer. If the gaining registrar allows,
> you may move your domain in those first 60 days; otherwise, you will need to
> wait 60 days before approaching a different registrar and requesting a
> transfer. For more information on the transfer of a registration between
> registrars, please see the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy, at
> http://www.icann.org/en/transfers/policy-en.htm.
> *Q. My domain name with my registrar was about to expire. How can I make
> sure it does not get lost in the transfer?*
> A. If a registration is due to expire within the next 30 days, ICANN will
> request that it be auto-renewed by the registry and maintained in its
> auto-renew grace period.
> *Q. What if my domain name is registered by a Whois privacy or proxy
> service?*
> A. If the privacy or proxy service is the registrant of record for your
> domain name(s), you should ensure that the service forwards to you any
> information it receives from the ICANN-accredited registrar selected to
> receive the bulk transfer.
> *Q. What does it mean that my registrar’s accreditation agreement was
> terminated?*
> A. Your registrar breached one or more provisions of its Registrar
> Accreditation Agreement (RAA) and failed to cure the breach (es) within the
> time period allowed by that contract. As a result, your registrar’s contract
> with ICANN was terminated and it is no longer ICANN-accredited. This means
> that your registrar will no longer be permitted to register generic
> top-level domain names (such as dot-com and dot-org) or continue to manage
> such registrations.
> *Q. How will the domain name transfer process work?*
> A. ICANN will follow the De-Accredited Registrar Transition Procedure
> (posted at
> http://www.icann.org/en/processes/registrars/de-accredited-registrar-transition-procedure-01oct08.pdf[PDF,
> 119K]) which is intended to ensure a timely transition in the event of
> the de-accreditation of a registrar.
> In summary, the De-Accredited Registrar Transition Procedure is initiated by
> providing the de-accredited registrar an opportunity to propose a receiving
> registrar at or about the same time ICANN posts a request for registrars to
> submit expressions of interest if they wish to be considered as potential
> recipients of a bulk transfer. Registrars are typically given one week to
> submit their expressions of interest. ICANN considers several factors in
> deciding whether to authorize a bulk transfer to the proposed registrar, and
> the transfer can only be approved if it would promote the community
> interest.
> If the de-accredited registrar fails to propose a receiving registrar or if
> ICANN determines that the proposed transfer would not promote the community
> interest, ICANN will review all submitted expressions of interest and invite
> all qualified registrar-applicants to participate in a one-week negotiation
> period. In the negotiation period, the registrar-applicants must submit
> competitive proposals that will be scored on pre-determined, objective
> criteria. The qualified registrar with the highest score will be selected to
> receive the bulk transfer of names.
> Once the receiving registrar is selected, ICANN will provide it with
> available registration data and notify the registries to effect the bulk
> transfer after the data has been integrated into the receiving registrar’s
> systems. The receiving registrar will then send notices to the affected
> registrants, with instructions on how to begin managing names with the
> receiving registrar.
> *Q. Will the chosen receiving registrar receive my registration data for my
> domain names?*
> A. The registration data for the gTLD names formerly managed by your
> registrar will be provided to the receiving registrar. This information will
> allow the receiving registrar to contact all registrants and create customer
> accounts for them so they may quickly begin managing their registrations. If
> your name is registered by a Whois privacy or proxy service, the receiving
> registrar will typically only receive the Whois privacy or proxy service
> registrant information.
> *Q. What if my domain name was deleted before my registrar was
> de-accredited, but I want it back?*
> A. If the name is available for registration, you may register it with your
> preferred ICANN-accredited registrar (see
> http://www.internic.net/regist.html).
> If the name has since been registered by someone else, you have at least
> three options:
> 1. Work out an agreement with the current registrant.
> 2. Wait to see if the current registrant lets the domain name expire.
> 3. If you believe the domain name is identical or confusingly similar to
> a trademark or service mark in which you have rights, and the current
> registrant has registered and is using the name in bad faith (and has no
> rights or legitimate interests in the name), you can begin an administrative
> proceeding under the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP).
> (Note: this is a narrow category, so you should proceed with caution.) For
> more details on this option, including a list of dispute resolution service
> providers, please see http://www.icann.org/en/udrp/udrp.htm.
> Please note that the UDRP applies only to domain names in generic top-level
> domains (such as dot-com and dot-net). Dispute resolution policies vary in
> other TLDs such as dot-in, dot-uk and the 240+ other country code top-level
> domains. You may wish to seek legal advice to determine if the UDRP is
> applicable to your situation, or to assist in identifying additional
> alternatives.
> *Q. I have read everything above but I still have some questions. Whom
> should I contact?*
> A. The receiving registrar will contact you shortly after the bulk transfer
> takes place. You should contact this registrar first with any issues. If you
> are still not able to get an answer to your questions, you may contact
> ICANN’s contractual compliance team at compliance at icann.org.
