 Bulk Transfer of DNGLOBE Domains to Paknic

1 March 2010

ICANN has authorized a bulk transfer of DNGLOBE LLC's gTLD domain names to
Paknic (Private) Limited, due to a compliance action taken by ICANN that
resulted in the de-accreditation of registrar DNGLOBE.

The affected gTLD registries have taken steps to effect the bulk transfers.
Former registrant-customers of DNGLOBE should soon receive notices of the
transfer from Paknic. Customer questions about the transfer should be
directed to Paknic, using the contact details provided below. Additional
information about this bulk transfer of DNGLOBE's domain names is also
provided below.


*Q. Why was this transfer authorized by ICANN?*

A. DNGLOBE's Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA) was terminated by ICANN
because of DNGLOBE's failure to comply with the requirements of the RAA.
(The notice of termination is posted at
http://www.icann.org/correspondence/pritz-to-smirnoff-05feb10-en.pdf [PDF,
1.85 MB]). As a result, DNGLOBE is no longer permitted to register or manage
gTLD registrations.

Q. How was the gaining registrar selected?

A. In accordance with ICANN's De-Accredited Registrar Transition Procedure
119 KB]), ICANN initiated a Request for Expressions of Interest to
identify a new ICANN-accredited registrar to manage the registrations
formerly managed by DNGLOBE. ICANN received 18 expressions of interest from
registrars in response to the RFI. Through the procedure, ICANN selected
Paknic (Private) Limited to receive the bulk transfer from DNGLOBE.

*Q. Will Paknic attempt to contact the affected registrants? What should
current/former DNGLOBE customers do?*

A. Former customers of DNGLOBE should receive a notice of the transfer and
instructions for continued management of their names from Paknic. Affected
customers who do not receive notices from Paknic should check the web page
prepared by Paknic for this bulk transfer:

Email:  support at paknic.com

*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 registration terms will not be extended
by a year. Accordingly, it is important to contact Paknic if your
registration will expire soon in order to maintain your registration.

*Q. Why do former DNGLOBE customers need to contact Paknic?*

A. DNGLOBE did not forward billing information to Paknic. Accordingly, all
registrants must provide updated billing information or transfer their names
to other registrars.

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

A. Registrants will continue to be able to transfer their registrations to
other registrars under the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (see
http://www.icann.org/en/transfers/). Note that Paknic may deny transfers for
the first 60 days following the bulk transfer, at its discretion. This
60-day period is permissible under the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy, and
is intended to help protect registrants. The registrant should renew names
that will expire during the first 60 days following the transfer to Packnic
by contacting Paknic at:

*Q. How will DNGLOBE customers know if a message purportedly from Paknic is

believe a message purportedly from Paknic is not legitimate, you should
navigate to their web page directly, at http://www.paknic.com/dnglobe/. For
