ICANN Sends Termination Notice to Registrar

Gadi Evron

ICANN has sent EstDomains a termination notice:

"Dear Mr. Tsastsin:

Be advised that the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA) for EstDomains, Inc. (customer No. 919, IANA No. 943) is terminated..."

I believe this is a very positive step from ICANN, showing it is indeed an active part in shaping the Internet, as well as responsible to its constituents.

While I am sure this can not be an easy move to make, it is warranted in this case and I believe it to be a brave one. While such decisions must not be made rashly, it is my deepest regret WHOIS information is the only way to reach such ends.

How disappointing, it seems like ICANN will no longer be terminating them… at least for now. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
