ICANN has terminated Bargin Register’s registrar accreditation, after warning the company that it would do so if it did not respond to UDRP verification requests from multiple UDRP providers.
ICANN issued a breach notice to Bargin Register on 19th November 2012 detailing the failures that had to be addressed, and following a lack of adequate response and action a termination notice was sent by ICANN on 20th February 2013.
According to the termination notice, Bargin Register had failed to maintain registration data and records for at least one domain (pursuant to Section 3.4.2 of the RAA), and had failed to make registration records and data available to ICANN upon reasonable notice (pursuant to Section 3.4.3 of the RAA).
Verisign data reports indicate that Bargin Register had more than 75,000 .com domain name registrations as of the end of October 2012.
The termination of the Bargin Register registrar, based in Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands, is effective from 22nd March 2013.
