[nc-udrp] Update from the Registrars
I have received a lot of feedback from the registrars regarding the notification and verification process in connection with the initiation of UDRP proceedings. It appears that the majority of registrars that have provided initial feedback strongly support the continued practice of receiving notification at the commencement of a proceeding to verify the whois data and lock the domain name. During our call yesterday, the dispute providers had mentioned problems with contacting some registrars and getting names placed on hold. The question I ask of the providers is how are they now contacting registrars. One of the thing that I have seen as the Chair of the Registrar Constituency is customary turn-over in management and staff. Would a role account such as UDRP-Notification@ICANNREGISTRAR.TLD be preferred if it is not already in place. How do the providers currently handle incidents where they are not able to get a registrar to timely lock a domain name?
