MARINA DEL REY, Calif. — ICANN has been granted a court order, allowing access to Registerfly records and requiring the domain registrar to hand over all data pertaining to its domain names.

ICANN filed suit and applied for a temporary restraining order in March after Registerfly repeatedly failed to hand over accurate domain registry information. The company now must provide this data to ICANN weekly.

With this date, ICANN will plan a bulk transfer of Registerfly's clients to a different ICANN-accredited registrar.

"We ask RegisterFly and its management to cooperate fully with the order," ICANN President Dr. Paul Twomey said.

The U.S. District Court also has scheduled a preliminary hearing April 26 in which ICANN will argue to extend the length of the TRO.

ICANN also will continue its lawsuit against Registerfly, after it found that the domain registrar acted against its ICANN contract by refusing to offer accurate and timely customer registration information.

“RegisterFly’s failure to provide that data constitutes a breach of the Registrar Accreditation Agreement and places RegisterFly’s customer in great jeopardy,” ICANN outside counsel Jeffrey LeVee wrote in a statement.

ICANN terminated Registerfly's accreditation in early March after an internal dispute resulted in an influx of customer complaints, and is currently considering updating its accreditation requirements for domain registrants.

A copy of the TRO can be viewed at ICANN.org.
