Hi there! 18.104.22.168 Transition to Delegation ..... If the initial start-up requirements are not satisfied so that the gTLD can be delegated into the root zone within the time frame specified in the registry agreement, ICANN may in its sole and absolute discretion elect to terminate the registry agreement. Question: Can Icann terminate the registry agreement once the delegation process has been successfully concluded including all the set up tests? What safeguard exists once a gTLD is up and running to ensure the domain management fulfill their obligations Icann's gTLD management. Will there be an Icann 'law book' laying down the rules and regulations that gTLD managers need to adhere to at all times and what mechanisms will exist to make them accountable to meet these standards, or if necessary, to get their registration license revoked or transferred to someone else, or even have their gTLD shut down altogether?
