Registrar Accreditation Agreement

ICANN has published in plain language the terms of its 2009 Registrar Accreditation Agreement for domain name registrants. It explains the registrar’s obligations and responsibilities. Registrars are required to have an interactive web page and a Whois service, which is freely available to the public, containing certain information, including details of the domain name, the date the registration expires and the registrants’ contact details. There are specific instances where Registrars must provide notice to registrants, including notification of the end of a registration term; the document summarises the action they can take at this stage. Under the terms of the RAA, registrars are required, within a reasonable time, to link to the ICANN web page containing the summary.
