ICANN rides to the rescue in Registerfly meltdown

Finally some needed action in the "when good registrars go bad" saga.

Yeah, well I lost two revenue earning domains to Regfly. The whois still shows my info but they aren't in my account and I don't get any reply when I ask where they are.

Thankfully, I had only a few domains there, but there are many that had hundreds, if not thousands.

Re: ICANN rides to the rescue in Registerfly meltdown

This case serves to remind the importance of parking names at a reliable registry. i've been spending a lot of time transferring/renewing names to moniker. this EPP thing is irritating! :o

Re: ICANN rides to the rescue in Registerfly meltdown

Just got this from someone wanting to move his names from registerfly:

-----------
I have a cash credit of over $100 in my acct with them - and
*****.com was set on "auto-renew" - but RegisterFly let it expire,
without my knowledge, even it was auto-renew and they already had $100
in my acct. Once it went down, and I saw it was expired and gone from
my domain list I contacted their Support.

Support initially responded, saying ***.com was in redemption, and
they told me to send $60 to risk@RegisterFly, which I did by VISA on
line and by FAX (to make sure). After that they put ***.com back
into my account (******) and it is there now. It has been renewed
until 2008. Then they wrote we should use it.

We are unable to use it, because it still shows Redemption period and
"scheduled for delete". I wrote 4 more tickets, sent 2 faxes and made a
phone call, but no reply since Feb 16 2007, when we asked them what was
wrong.

----------------

This appears to be be typical of how they have operated. Accepting payments for renewals, and not renewing names, just updating their internal WHOIS database.

Then accepting payments for redeeming names, and not redeeming names.

I have told this person to tell his story to ICANN.

Can anyone here fill in the missing blanks - "Register*** are a bunch of m***** f***** crooks"

This is playing out to be a crazy story!
On the positive side, it should bring some future stop gap measures so this never happens again.

You obviously have an implicit understanding of how things work here!

ICANN give accreditation, but appears to conduct no regular audits. ICANN Acreditation is therefore completely worthless.

(Hopefully) this will bring about the changes, policies and procedures needed so this scenerio can never play out again.

Re: ICANN rides to the rescue in Registerfly meltdown

ICANN has mutated into a virus, feeding on registration taxes to engorge itself and grow.

Take a look at it's budgets compared to the late 90's.

WTF?

The difference between a "not for profit" and a "for profit" company.
