The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers announced the termination of the Registrar Accreditation Agreement with Net 4 India Limited as a result of its failure to cure multiple breaches of the agreement and published the termination notice on its website.
Third breach notice
ICANN stated that it received hundreds of complaints about the Indian registrar. Most of the users complained about the inability to transfer and renew their domains. ICANN contacted Net 4 India about the complaints in April of 2019 and a few months later, issues a Notice of Suspension in June of 2019.
However, ICANN’s decision to suspend was delayed because of the activity in Indian courts. ICANN also issued breach notices to the company in 2020 and in January of 2021, ICANN issued the third breach notice. De-Accredited Registrar Transition Procedure will begin shortly. In the notice, ICANN stated,
