Internet Registry Pty Ltd (Chesley Rafferty) apologises

Clarification of Internet Registry Mail out offer sent on the 25 June 2002

Internet Registry would like to apologise and offer clarification of a mail out that was sent to you on the 25 of June 2002. auDA (the governing body of the .au namespace) feels that certain elements of the mail out are misleading and Internet Registry seeks to clarify any confusion that could have occurred to our clients.

Firstly, Internet Registry operates as a facilitator of domain registrations and is not currently a registry or registrar licensed or accredited by auDA, nor is it a registrar approved reseller.

Secondly, Australian domain regulations currently are such that a domain name cannot be renewed, until at its earliest, 90 days prior to the expiry of that domain name. As such, payments that we have currently received from you will held by us until your domain is able to be renewed.

To prevent any feelings of ill will, Internet Registry will offer a refund of the amount you have paid to us for registration, if you request us to do so within 14 days of receipt of this email (in line with this, after you receive your refund, we will not proceed with your registration. So, if you wish to renew your domain name at a later time, you will need to do so yourself or engage a service provider to register it, and pay the appropriate renewal fees at that time).

Additionally, in the letter you received from us, there may have been confusion about the role that Melbourne IT now has. Melbourne IT whilst no longer the registry operator for the .com.au namespace continues to operate as an auDA accredited registrar for the .com.au namespace.

Internet Registry again apologises if any confusion has arisen for you or your company from our mail out and sincerely thanks you for your understanding.

Kind regards

Chesley Rafferty
Managing Director
Internet Registry Pty Ltd

Internet Registry Pty Ltd (Chesley Rafferty) notice in breach of auDA Code of Practice?

Filed under: Chesley Rafferty, Internet Registry — Josh @ 11:35 pm

Here’s the Internet Registry Pty Ltd notice:

Internet Registry Pty Ltd (Chesley Rafferty) notice Internet Registry Pty Ltd (Chesley Rafferty) notice

This statement is incorrect:

” …

Secure your domain name with Internet Registry in the new system before 31st July, any existing registration period for your domain will be added to your two year registration!

… “

Domain Name Licences are for 2 years Only
http://www.auda.org.au/about/news/2001040201.html

The notice may be in breach of the auDA Code of Practice
(http://www.auda.org.au/docs/auda-2002-13.txt), specifically 5.1, 5.2, 5.5 (b),(d)&(f).

” …

5. CUSTOMER CONTACT

5.1 A registrar must not send a renewal notice for a specific domain name licence to a egistrant, or any other communication that might reasonably be construed by the registrant to be a renewal notice, unless the registrar is the registrar of record for that domain name licence in the registry database.

5.2 A reseller must not send a renewal notice for a specific domain name licence to a registrant, or any other communication that might reasonably be construed by the registrant to be a renewal notice, unless the reseller has been previously appointed by the registrant to be their agent.

5.5 Domain name suppliers may make a service offering to a registrant (other than as described in paragraphs 5.1 and 5.2), provided that:

b) there is no mention of a specific domain name or related information such as an expiry date;

d) it is clearly explained that acceptance of the offer may require the registrant to either transfer to another reseller of the current registrar of record, or transfer to a new domain name licence with a different registrar of record;

f) the contact information for the registrant was not obtained from the WHOIS service operated by the registry, or from auDA’s centralised WHOIS service.

… “

From MelbourneIT’s Consumer Warning:

” …

Internet Registry Pty Ltd is not an auDA licensed registrar, nor is it an appointed reseller of Melbourne IT Ltd.

… “

… so which Registrar has this company on their books?
