Tucows will follow TechOps subcommittee recommendation for domain transfers as ICANN figures out what to do.
Here’s the thing about GDPR and domain name registrars/registries: if they wait for ICANN to figure out how to address GDPR, it will be too late to make the necessary changes to comply with the law. GDPR enforcement goes into effect in just 23 days.
One registrar that has been at the forefront of making changes to comply with GDPR (and has been stating them publicly) is Tucows (NASDAQ: TCX), which owns both Enom and OpenSRS. It is the second largest domain name registrar in the world behind GoDaddy.
The company recently posted about changes it will make to its domain name transfer process as a result of GDPR.
