    Youch... guess I need to email my friend. I wonder is she knows that. She's been busy for the last week or so as have I so we haven't been mailing much since she got the business site out of their hands.

    ICANN terminates RegisterFly.com's RAA

    http://www.icann.org/announcements/announcement-2-16mar07.htm

    ICANN today issued a formal notice of termination of RegisterFly.com's Registration Accreditation Agreement (RAA).

    ICANN has issued a letter to RegisterFly [PDF, 902K] indicating that it will cease operating as an ICANN-Accredited Registrar on March 31, 2007. Under the terms of the Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), ICANN must provide 15 days written notice to RegisterFly of its intention to terminate.

    Effective immediately ICANN has terminated RegisterFly's right to use the ICANN Accredited Registrar logo on its website.

    Between now and 31 March RegisterFly is required to unlock and provide all necessary Authinfo codes to allow domain name transfers to occur. Any and all registrants wishing to transfer away from RegisterFly during this period should be allowed to do so efficiently and expeditiously.

    "Terminating accreditation is the strongest measure ICANN is able to take against RegisterFly under its powers," Dr. Paul Twomey, President and CEO of ICANN said today.

    "ICANN has been frustrated and distressed by recent management confusion inside RegisterFly," Dr. Twomey, President said. "I completely understand the greater frustration and enormous difficulty that this has created for registrants."

    When the Agreement is terminated, ICANN can approve a bulk transfer of all current RegisterFly domain names to another ICANN accredited Registrar.

    "Of course, RegisterFly does not have to wait till then. They can request ICANN to approve a bulk transfer immediately. I call on RegisterFly to act in the interests of registrants and seek such a transfer from us straight away," Dr. Twomey said.

    ICANN intends to hold a forum to discuss the reform of the Accreditation policy and process at its Lisbon meeting in a week's time*.

    A set of questions and points to inform the discussion will be made public prior to the Lisbon meeting.

    * The Lisbon meeting is one of three meetings held a year by ICANN to meet with global stakeholders. It will take place from 26-30 March 2007.

    yeah I read that as well, looks like justice is finally being done, though long overdue in my opinion.

    Not really. After I shot that off to her in an email, she learned they took her money and didn't even renew the domains... she's lost a lot of them because of that crap. I'm not yet sure what she can do to get them back.

    She's being a little optimistic about it. It seems one of her friends has a total of 450 domains with registerfly. I really feel for them but there's nothing I can do for any of them.

    We tried to transfer one away and they had it locked at that time and refused to unlock it. That was her business domain. The rest seem to be in some sort of limbo but hopefully with everyone working on it she can recover.

    So do I, z, so do I. I've never had a situation like that personally. the worst i've ever had was a hosting company before i was a company trying to keep a domain gotten through them. Their hosting sucked so we wanted a change.

    i haven't had any trouble with registar's either. i have had some issues getting a few domains from my old host moved over to the new one though. in germany domain name registration is done through the host and take care all the dns information and so forth. i miss being able to use dotster or enom. much more convenient and i felt much moire secure being in control over my domains.

    Yeah, when we first started offering domain names to our customers it made me nervous because we had to do the ordering. I didn't want customers having the same hassles I used to have. It's much better now with the reseller account through resellone. The customers have their own interfaces.
