NameCheap Gets Slapped By ICANN

icannlogoNameCheap has been sent a breach notice by ICANN’s Compliance department.

The notice, which was sent yesterday, shows that ICANN has been trying to get a response from NameCheap since the middle of March of this year.

NameCheap, apparently, is not meeting its contractual obligations to:

  • keep data about domain name registrants and their dealings with NameCheap
  • list pricing on domain renewal and post-expiry pricing
  • provide details on how they send domain renewal notices

Here’s the full letter:


NameCheap doesn’t appear to be using its accreditation for most of its domain registrations preferring to instead act as a reseller for eNom. The company is still on the 2009 RAA.
