The Endurance International Group, Inc. appreciates the opportunity to
submit a public comment on these issues and supports the alternative
framework proposed by Google Inc. in its comments on Thick Whois/RDAP
We agree that the consistent display requirements in the Thick Whois Policy
could be better implemented as follows:
* Having registries include the Registrar Abuse Contact Email and Phone
Number in their Whois Outputs;
* Keeping the Reseller Field Optional for both registries and registrars;
* Having Registries continue to display only one expiration date (the
registry expiration date).
Considering that this proposed alternative would condense the timeline for
the remaining thin registries to transition to thick and show fields that
are currently only required in the registrar output within the registry
output, registrars should not be required to implement RDAP.  Pending policy
development work that is applicable to RDAP, registries (and registrars that
optionally implement RDAP) should be free to develop their own operational
practices for RDAP and be encouraged to share their findings and experiences
to inform future policy development work.
