ICANN Threatens Registerfly with Legal Action

 12:10 am on Mar 5, 2007 (gmt 0)


ICANN accuses Registerfly of willfully refusing to comply with an accreditation audit as mandated in its Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA). Registerfly's failure to fulfill the most fundamental obligations of its RAA appears to have forced ICANN's hand; the harshly worded letter lambasts Registerfly for its failure to allow ICANN's auditor to copy Registerfly's registration data, and gives notice to Registerfly of ICANN's intention to file suit against it in federal court on Tuesday, March 6.

Lol. Anyone reminded of the same line from movie 'A fish named wanda'? After Jamie Lee Curtis said something about 'his parents used to beat him', that was the one word response. Seems appropriate.

I advise everyone to run, not walk away from registerfly.com Their customer service has always been horrible. <removed> has been the registar of choice for me for quite some time. I know they dont have great customer service either, but I know I am not paying for it.

It's about time! Registerfly is probably the worst registar out there. I lost 2 domains using them. They were the first domain registar I had ever used when I first started my web business. At that time I thought they were great, I didn't know any better, but as time went on, they just continued on a downward spiral. Not only was their customer service poor their network was slow and their hosting sucked.

Regiserfly made such a bad name for itself that the only thing they can do is completely dump their business name and comeback under a different name with no association to registerfly.

But now even cannot get the contact details at registerfly.com, if you go to www.#*$! and try to get the contact details for the domains at registerfly.com then you will get nothing, then how to transfer the domains at registerfly.com to other registrar?

You can transfer to a reseller account of their previous wholesaler.


It is funny I saw the number of transfers in and out on the registar report for them and they were losing alot of domains...

ICANN pull the plug on registerfly domain name?
Ha that would be funny one!

I have a bunch of domains with them, still working but I can't transfer them to godaddy or whom ever if I can't get their site up...


Are there any threads on the best way to pick a registrar? is there a top 10 list anywheres?

linkbait say what!?

From registerfliesDotCom: (unsubstantiated latest news)

Quick announcement. John and Glenn have re-gained control of Registerfly and the site is currently down due to them moving it over to the new server. So this domain name successfully transferred away from Kevin Medina and is now under full control of John and Glenn along with Mark Klein. Glenn couldn't talk long because they were on their way to a meeting with the FBI. That's the news.

when the site will work?


 10:15 pm on Mar 6, 2007 (gmt 0)

The site [registerfly.com...] is working now


 4:38 pm on Mar 8, 2007 (gmt 0)

Also with a read me on there. I dont think many people will respect their plea. People on the net are very picky and fickle.

Horrible story.

ICANN has terminated RegisterFly.com's Registration Accreditation Agreement. Good riddance.

egads a link to pdf? for being masters of the domain names they sure don't know users very well. pdfs are overused way too much to perform a task web browsers do perfectly well...display text and images...

they are a nusiance to the web!

there are online pdf to html converters as well
