I just read a message to some other list (tucows registrar resellers)
that says that NetSol (the registrar) will also delete IDN names as of
February 28, 2004. (I guess they missed out on the extra day February
has this year.) It seems this is about .com and .net names. One has to
transfer them to another registrar, they say, or they die.
Welcome to Oklahoma. I am now very mad. It is time ICANN acts up or it
will lose goodwill altogether. Can individual registrars do this?
ICANN accredited? Does that mean anything?
You can read the message I refer to below. I am not sure it is proper
to attach it, but I see no other way to give you the information. The
archives require a password, I think.
