ICANN adds new documentation for Registerfly clients

Wed, 9th May 2007, 01:55

Under a preliminary injunction issued in late April by US Federal Court Judge, Manuel J. Real, ICANN now has the right to terminate RegisterFly’s accreditation as soon as possible. The provision to ICANN of current and accurate data for all of RegisterFly’s domain names has also been ordered by the Court as RegisterFly failed to meet the conditions of a temporary restraining order (TRO) which the Court issued on April 16, 2007.

Following the injunction, ICANN is immediately inviting statements of interest from accredited registrars starting Monday, 30 April 2007, to act as a transfer provider, so domain name registrants can gain full access to their domains. The registrar handling the transfers will temporarily hold the names and help registrants transfer to any ICANN accredited registrar of their choice.

ICANN has recently added additional content to their site to assist users of Registerfly's service. The updated information can be found on ICANN's blog here. Registerfly users are urged to perform transfers to other accredited registrars immediately.

Several of the top ten providers on our list do have ICANN accredited registrars providing their domains.
