The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) on Wednesday came to the rescue of domain name customers of Net 4 India. The customers were unable to access, manage or renew their domain names for months due to legal proceedings of Net 4 India insolvency. ICANN announced that the bankrupt Net 4 India domains will be transferred to a US based organization owned by Endurance International Group, Public Domain Registry (PDR).
As per ICANN, “PDR has experience operating in the same region as Net 4 India, supports many local languages and currencies, and was selected after a careful review to ensure registrants will be well served.”
Background behind the move
As per announcement posted on the ICANN website, “The bulk transfer follows the termination of Net 4 India’s Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA) and the invocation of ICANN’s De-Accredited Registrar Transition Procedure (DARTP). This procedure enables the successful transition of gTLD domain names previously registered by a terminated registrar to an ICANN-accredited registrar that can appropriately serve registrants.”
How to transfer your domain name?
ICANN will work along with PDR to successfully transfer registration data for Net 4 India customers to it. By early next week, PDR will start contacting domain registrants on how they can access and manage their domain name registrations. On being contacted, registrants will need to follow the provided instructions on how to access their registrations.
Once done, all gTLD registrations will be migrated from Net 4 India to PDR. This ICANN approved bulk domain transfer will be free of cost and noAuthInfo codes will be required for the process.
