ICANN terminates another registrar

Another tiny domain name registrar has been given its marching orders by ICANN.

Best Bulk Register, which looks to have only a few hundred domains under management, will be shut down March 4, according to a letter (pdf) from ICANN’s compliance department.

The company had failed to pay over $10,000 in fees, and was not providing Whois services as required by the Registrar Accreditation Agreement, according to ICANN.

The registrar’s web site does not currently appear to resolve.

Best Bulk has until tomorrow to pick a registrar to take over its domains, or ICANN will pick one for it.

  1. This is good for the entire domaining industry and even to ordinary people trying to have a website. We will have 1 less weak registrar.

    Thanks ICANN 🙂
