GoDaddy VP no longer using his accredited registrar.
I always thought it was odd that DNForum owner Adam Dicker still owned his own domain name registrar after he took a job as VP at GoDaddy. So when I saw that ICANN was not renewing his accreditation for Domain Jingles, Inc., it gave me a chance to reach out to him.
As it turns out, Dicker moved his domains to GoDaddy a long time ago and hasn’t been actively using his registrar.
In response to an email, Dicker wrote “It has been inactive for about 4 years and I am happy with all my names at GoDaddy”.
I see a number of “abandoned” domain name registrars end up shutting down due to non-renewal from ICANN. But waiting for ICANN to shut down your registrar for you can be expensive: ICANN claims Dicker still owes it over $30,000 in past due accreditation fees.
