Cheapies.com gets second notice of breach from ICANN in 1 week

Last week ICANN send notices of breach to 10 accredited registrars because they were in breach of their Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA) with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). One of the 10 registrars was Cheapies.com that got another notice of breach this week for different reasons.

Last week Cheapies.com was required to Complete the Audit Request for Information (RFI) Phase and pay all past due accreditation fees that remain unpaid.

This week Cheapies.com’s got a notice of breach after:

  • failure to make available to ICANN copies of any written communications between Cheapies.com and the Registered Name Holders of various domain names,
  • failure to provide the Registered Name Holder a reasonable opportunity and ability to unlock various domain names,
  • failure to provide the Registered Name Holder the “AuthInfo” code within 5 calendar days concerning a domain name

To date, Cheapies.com has not contacted ICANN Contractual Compliance regarding that the first Notice. ICANN requests that Cheapies.com cure the breaches by 8 February 2013, 15 working days from the date of this letter.

After failure to timely cure the breaches and provide the information requested, ICANN may
commence the registrar termination process.
