Transfer of DotSpeedy Domains to Secura GmbH

. April 9, 2010 . 0 Comments

ICANN has authorized a bulk transfer of DotSpeedy LLC’s gTLD domain names to Secura GmbH, due to a compliance action taken by ICANN that resulted in the de-accreditation of registrar DotSpeedy LLC (dba dotspeedy.com).

The affected gTLD registries have taken steps to effect the bulk transfers. Former registrant-customers of DotSpeedy should soon receive notices of the transfer from Secura. Customer questions about the transfer should be directed to Secura, using the contact details provided below. Additional information about this bulk transfer of DotSpeedy’s domain names is also provided below.

FAQs
Q. Why was this transfer authorized by ICANN?
A. DotSpeedy’s Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA) was terminated by ICANN because of DotSpeedy’s failure to comply with the requirements of the RAA. (The notice of termination is posted athttp://www.icann.org/correspondence/burnette-to-alexandrine-12mar10-en.pdf[PDF, 64 KB]). As a result, DotSpeedy is no longer permitted to register or manage gTLD registrations.
Q. How was the gaining registrar selected?
A. I CANN followed its De-Accredited Registrar Transition Procedure (seehttp://www.icann.org/en/processes/registrars/de-accredited-registrar-transition-procedure-01oct08.pdf[PDF, 119 KB]) to identify a gaining registrar. Through this competitive process, Secura was selected.
Q. Will Secura attempt to contact the affected registrants? What should current/former DotSpeedy customers do?
A. Former customers of DotSpeedy should receive a notice of the transfer and instructions for continued management of their names from Secura. Affected customers who do not receive notices from Secura should contact Secura directly at:

Q. Do registrants have to pay a fee for the bulk transfer?
A. No, there is no cost to registrants for the bulk transfer. Unlike a normal inter-registrar transfer, the registration terms will not be extended by a year. Accordingly, it is important to contact Secura if your registration will expire soon in order to maintain your registration.
Q. Why do former DotSpeedy customers need to contact Secura?
A. DotSpeedy did not forward billing information to Secura. Accordingly, all registrants must provide updated billing information or transfer their names to other registrars.
Q. What if former DotSpeedy customers want to use a different registrar?
A. Registrants will continue to be able to transfer their registrations to other registrars under the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (seehttp://www.icann.org/en/transfers/). Note that Secura may deny transfers for the first 60 days following the bulk transfer, at its discretion. This 60-day period is permissible under the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy, and is intended to help protect registrants. The registrant should renew names that will expire during the first 60 days following the transfer to Secura by contacting Secura at:
