ICANN Opens Comment Period on PIR Amendment to Implement Approved Registry Service

February 23, 2007; 12:35 AM

On 22 November 2006, ICANN's Board of Directors by a 10-0 vote approved Resolution 06.84 to implement the Public Interest Registry's (PIR's) proposed new registry service [PDF, 1,160K] to implement an excess delete fee on certain ("excess") .ORG domain names deleted during the 5-day add-grace period. Specifically the new service approved by the Board provides that PIR may charge a registrar an excess delete fee of 5 cents on every domain name deleted during the 5-day add-grace period when the number of deletions is in excess of 90% of the total number of initial registrations made by a registrar in a 30-day period.

The resolution authorized the President and General Counsel to enter into an amendment of the .ORG Registry Agreement with PIR to implement the approved service.

A copy of the amendment is available here [PDF, 33K] and provides for changes [PDF, 181K] to Appendix 7, Section 3.1.1 and Appendix 8 (the Registry-Registrar Agreement), Exhibit A of the .ORG Registry Agreement.
