Termination of RegisterFly.com
Two million domain names for 900,000 different owners at risk
Registrar Accreditation Agreement
16 March 2007
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
"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
"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
