 CodyCorp Domains Transferred to eNom

23 February 2010

An estimated 22 domain names previously sponsored by registrar CodyCorp.com
Inc. have been transferred to ICANN-accredited registrar eNom, Inc.
following the termination of CodyCorp's registrar accreditation agreement.

Customers of CodyCorp should contact eNom for continued management of their
names. There will be no cost to the registrants for this transfer.

CodyCorp’s accreditation expired and was not renewed by ICANN due to
multiple uncured breaches of its accreditation agreement, which are
described at
53 KB]. ICANN initiated the De-Accredited
Registrar Transition
119 KB] to identify a gaining registrar to receive a bulk transfer of
the names formerly managed by CodyCorp. As part of that process, CodyCorp
proposed that eNom be selected as gaining registrar. ICANN approved the
proposed bulk transfer.

Registrants with names registered through CodyCorp should contact eNom for
customer service. Contact details for eNom can be found at
http://www.internic.net/registrars/registrar-48.html. Below are answers to
some common questions regarding the bulk transfer.


*Q. Why did ICANN authorize the bulk transfer?*

A. CodyCorp’s Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA) expired and was not
renewed by ICANN due to RAA compliance issues. As a result, CodyCorp is no
longer permitted to register or manage gTLD registrations. In order to
protect the customers of CodyCorp, ICANN initiated the De-Accredited
Registrar Transition Procedure (posted at
53 KB]) and determined that this bulk transfer would promote the
community interest.

*Q. What should current/former CodyCorp customers do?*

A. Registrants should contact eNom as soon as possible to begin managing
their names and to avoid any unintended non-renewal of their domains.

*Q. Do registrants have to pay a fee for the bulk transfer?*

A. No, there is no cost to registrants for the bulk transfer. Unlike a
normal inter-registrar transfer, the length of registration terms will not
be extended by a year. Accordingly, it is important to contact eNom if your
registration will expire soon in order to maintain your registration.

*Q. What if former CodyCorp customers want to use a different registrar?*

A. Registrants may be able to transfer their registrations to other
registrars under the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (see
http://www.icann.org/en/transfers/) after establishing their accounts with
eNom. Note that eNom may deny transfers for the first 60 days following the
bulk transfer, at eNom's discretion. This 60-day period is permissible under
the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy, and is intended to help protect
registrants. Names that will expire during the first 60 days following the
transfer to eNom should be renewed by the registrant by contacting eNom
