ICANN De-Accredits DomainMonger.com

ICANN the managing authority for all gTLDs has removed the accreditation from
Central Registrar, Inc. DBA Domainmonger.com (accredited since 4 October 2010).

The termination is due to Domainmonger’s failure to timely cure the policy breaches by 1 February 2013 as set forth in ICANN’s notice of breach of RAA dated 11 January 2013.

As of 11 February 2013, the following breaches remained:

* Failure to provide documents and information as required by the terms of Section 3.14;

* Failure to maintain records relating to Domainmonger.com’s dealings with Registry Operator(s) and Registered Name Holders and to make such records available to ICANN for inspection, pursuant to Sections 3.4.2 and 3.4.3 of the RAA;

* Domainmonger.com’s failure to pay past due accreditation fees pursuant to Section 3.9 of the RAA. ($2,049.68).

To protect domain name registrants, ICANN has commenced the domain name transition process and selected ICANN Accredited Domain Registrar Astutium Ltd to manage any remaining gtld domain names formerly managed by Central Registrar Inc.

All registrants affected by the reg-transition process of domains being moved to Astutium Ltd as registrar, will shortly receive 2 emails from astutium.com
#1 with details on how to access our online domain name registration and management platform
#2 a standard whois-dispute-resolution-policy email reminder registrants to update their contact details

We are sorry to see another registrar let their registrants’ down, but pleased to be able to assist in helping those affected retain their domain names.

If your domain was originally with Central Registrar, Inc. DBA Domainmonger.com you can check the current registrar on a WHOIS at InterNIC WHOIS which will indicate which registrar you need to contact

Example:
   Domain Name: ASTUTIUM.COM
   Registrar: ASTUTIUM LIMITED
   Whois Server: whois.astutium.net
   Referral URL: https://www.astutium.com
   Name Server: NS1.ASTUTIUM.COM
