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. The comments on the amendment submitted to [email protected] will be considered until 5:00 PM PDT 15 March 2007 and may be viewed at http://forum.icann.org/lists/registryservice/. The process for considering new registry services is posted at http://www.icann.org/registries/rsep/rsep.html.
All documentation regarding this proposed service and corresponding
comment forum has been previously posted as part of the procedure at http://www.icann.org/registries/rsep/submitted_app.html#2006003.
