ICANN terminates registrar with over 75,000 domain names

Registrar blamed for not maintaining accurate registrant data.

ICANN has followed up on its threats by terminating Bargin Register’s registrar accreditation.

ICANN sent a breach notice to the company in November, stating that the company had failed to respond to UDRP verification requests from multiple UDRP providers.

According to the termination notice (pdf), as of February 20 the registrar still hadn’t maintained registration data and records for at least one domain and had failed to make registration records and data available to ICANN upon reasonable notice.

The termination of the Grand Cayman registrar is effective March 22.

Back in November Bargin Register’s home page was just a login page. It has been updated to offer domain registration, but the prices are hardly a “bargin”: $49.99 for a .com registration.

As of the end of October the company had over 75,000 .com domain name registrations according to Verisign data reports.

    Will be interesting to see who these domains actually belong to. I would not be surprised to find they are all actually owned by one Party with fake details, but that is just my supposition.

    You can’t figure out who this is, really.

    It was easy, get a list of their names, research using whos history, everyone goofs up and forgets to add privacy one in 75000 go rounds :)
