ICANN to terminate Pheenix domain registrar

This Pheonix won’t rise from the dead.

ICANN is terminating its accreditation agreement with domain name registrar Pheenix.

The domain name overseer sent a breach notice to the registrar on April 25 and followed up with a termination notice today.

Pheenix hasn’t been paying its accreditation fees and hasn’t responded to ICANN about various complaints dating to October 2019.

ICANN is soliciting bids for other domain name registrars to take over Pheenix’s domain names.

Pheenix was once a large drop catching business and had about 500 accreditations. In the most recent Verisign report published by ICANN, Pheenix had about 5,000 .com domains remaining under management.
