ICANN Intervention

On October 6, 2010, ICANN approved the bulk transfer of all the registered gTLDs under 4Domains, Inc. to Internet.bs Corp., as a result of the compliance action taken by ICANN, which lead to the termination of the Registrar Accreditation Agreement of 4Domains. The company failed to comply with the requirements of the agreement. 4Domains requested the bulk transfer to Internet.bs. ICANN authorized the bulk transfer after reviewing all the considerations under the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy and De-Accredited Registrar Transition Procedure, and proved that the request was in the community's interest.[2]
