ICANN’s compliance team have been quite busy so far this year.
In one of their most recently published breach notices against Chinese registrar Xin Net is getting “slapped” for “Repeated failure to escrow gTLD registration data pursuant to Section 3.6 of the RAA”
Unlike other compliance actions where the registrar in question simply has not escrowed data, the case of Xin Net appears to be more of a technical issue. However the issue has been ongoing since February this year and the registrar has so far failed to resolve the issues.
Xin Net has until August 28th to resolve the issues before ICANN proceeds with potentially terminating their contract.
The full breach notice which includes the timeline is here: Serad to He
