Effective immediately ICANN has terminated RegisterFly's right to use the ICANN logo on any parts of it's site.

During these past few months RegisterFly has been in the news quite frequently. Previously here on Hostjury for several instances regarding mismanagement of their funding and not having their clients' best interests in mind.

Effectively immediately 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 promptly.

Early today the President and CEO of ICANN said "Terminating accreditation is the strongest measure ICANN is able to take against RegisterFly under its powers.. ICANN has been frustrated and distressed by recent management confusion inside RegisterFly.".

"I completely understand the greater frustration and enormous difficulty that this has created for registrants." he 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.

You're now all free to transfer away from Registerfly!
