ICANN sends breach notice to GKG.net

Registrar has not been responsive to ICANN’s requests and hasn’t paid its bills.

ICANN has sent a breach notice (pdf) to accredited registrar GKG.net.

Officially, the breach notice is for three issues:

  1. Failure to implement a transfer due to a UDRP decision
  2. Failure to respond to an ICANN request about abuse complaints
  3. Past due accreditation fees

But the organization also noted:

ICANN notes that during the complaint process: a) GKG.NET routinely does not respond to ICANN inquiries and notices, or if GKG.NET responds, its responses are often untimely and incomplete; b) ICANN Contractual Compliance is not able to contact GKG.NET via telephone during the Registrar’s business hours. Further, the telelephone number of the Primary Contact on file with ICANN appears to be inaccurate.

That’s not reassuring for customers.

GKG.net is one of the earlier ICANN-accredited registrars, using IANA #93. It has about 60,000 .com domains under management.
