[nc-deletes] First attempt: Introduction
Recent policy development activity in relation to studying transfers in the transfers task force, providing advice on the VeriSign Wait List Service proposal, and in considering the redemption grace period proposal has highlighted a range of issues associated with current domain name delete processes.
Four specific issues have been identified as being the following:
1. Uniform deletes practice after domain name expiry by registrars.
2. Deletion following a complaint on WHOIS accuracy.
3. Registry delete process.
4. Reversal of renewal transactions.
In considering these issues the Task Force has identified at least one key issue that remains open for further discussion and work: the uniform reallocation of deleted names across all registries. The Task Force believes that a more extensive analysis of this issue is needed than can be provided within the time frame of our current charter.
This report will be presented to the Names Council for acceptance and forwarded to the Board for agreement. We encourage the Names Council to endorse our recommendations.
